Private Birth Preparation Appointments

Preparing for your Birth can be a stressful, overwhelming and confusing task. So I offer Private Birth Preparation sessions for families who want to discuss in depth the benefits and risks of different aspects of pregnancy, labour and birth without the group setting. Parents can discuss the circumstances around birth interventions and learn what is completely involved with each of these. Becoming informed about Labour, Birth and the early Postpartum period.

i trust my instincts

As part of this service I also offer a Birth debrief to discuss your birth and your feelings around your baby’s entrance into the world. This is an opportunity to gush, vent or simply discuss your birth events with someone who understands, can empathise and is aware of your original birth plans to help celebrate and work through your birth story to better enter and enjoy your early motherhood journey.

Prices for a couple for Private Birth Preparation and Debrief $120.

  • In 20 years the percentage of women ofver 30 having their first child has risen from 23% to 43%. This could indicate more pressure or more need to intervene in your birth, as well as an increasing the possibility of less children. Your first birth does not have to define all your births, but it can certainly pave the way to easier and better subsequent births.
