Knowledge and preparation for your birth are so important for you and your birth partner and can make a huge difference to the experience of birth and early parenting.
“Although birth is a natural process, it is so important to make sure you fully understand the physiology of birth, how your birth partner can support this, and you, as well as your options. You can then make your own informed choices for your birth.”
I offer 1:1 birth preparation sessions either in the comfort of your own home at a time that suits you (depending on your location) or virtually if you are further away or abroad.
This consists of two sessions of two hours each with you and your birth partner and an option for another session purely aimed at your birth partner to cement and discuss their role in your birth.
During these sessions we would cover the physiology and process of birth and how your birth partner can support this. Some of the other points we cover include: comfort measures both natural and pharmaceutical so that you are fully aware of the choices you have; C sections both planned and unplanned; possible medical interventions; preparation for your baby; feeding and the postnatal period and what to expect.
As these sessions are 1:1, or 2:1 if including your birth partner, it has the advantage of being able to tailor the sessions for you and, if necessary, focus on any specific areas that you may feel unsure or anxious about. These courses also include support by both phone and internet until your baby is six weeks old.
I also run specific classes for being a birth partner, breast feeding and early parenting.
As well as birth preparation, I am also a huge advocate for the amazing support Hypnobirthing brings. Please click the link for more information on Hypnobirthing and the sessions I run.
Time for relaxation during pregnancy, birth and beyond is so important and for partners too. Just a few moments of calm and slowing down. Time to be calm and quiet. Try it here with one of my relaxation recordings that I always incorporate in birth preparation.
