Pregnancy & Birth Support

"You truly made my second delivery a positive and empowering experience. It probably wasn’t the delivery anyone expected, but my feelings are so different to the first time round. which is in large thanks to you & your kind, knowledgeable & non-judgemental support."

- Jo W, second time mum, South London

My birth services are tailored to suit the individual requirements of each person I work with, so never quite the same. However, this should give you an idea of what I can offer:

 

  • Free no obligation meet and chat 

  • 2 x 2 hour pre-birth sessions in your home, primarily to get to know each other, but to also discuss:

    • Your past experiences with pregnancy, birth and labour. If this is your first pregnancy, any pre-conceptions you may have.

    • Your hopes, wishes, fears and expectations

    • The various pathways to birth

    • What your birthing preferences may be 

    • Ways I can support you and your birthing partner through birth, including relaxation, breathing techniques, massage and various pain management.

  • Email, phone and messaging support throughout pregnancy to answer any questions and offer additional support

  • Accompanying you on antenatal appointments at any stage in your pregnancy (by request)

  • On call 10 days before your EDD until week 42 (flexible)

  • Access to my birth pool, TENS machine, and extensive range of birth and postnatal books. 

  • Continuous emotional and physical support during your birth; protecting your space; suggesting natural interventions to aide progress; creating a pause to give you time to make informed decisions

  • Help and support for first feed after birth

  • Debrief session in your home a week or two after birth

 

For a full package and price list, or to book a free consultation to find out more about how I can support you, drop me a line or give me a call.
