Continous support for you and your family through pregnancy, birth and the early days of parenthood. I offer you and your birth partner support to ensure you are fully informed and listened to. The support I offer can consist of preparation for childbirth and settling in with your new addition. During the support I will give you information, explore your choices, advocate on your behalf if/when required, have conversations about the unexpected and ensure your birth partner feels supported.
Antenatal Preparation – Two 2 hour home visits tailored to meet your requirements, getting to know one another and offering you education on labour and birth.
Labour – Between 38 and 42 weeks of your pregnancy, I will go “on call”, this means that you can reach me anytime your labour is starting and I can join you at the point you feel you want me there.
Postpartum – Within 2 weeks after birth we will together arrange a home visit which is an opportunity to talk about how the birth went and help with any practical things like infant feedings or signposting to other services. I offer 6 weeks telephone support.
