"I can't thank you enough. Patrick and I felt totally calm and in control throughout the whole experience. Your guidance gave me the confidence to trust my body, slow down and have the strength to "push through" (literally haha) at the suggestion of interventions or a c-section. Breastfeeding has been a dream! The nurses couldn't believe he was my first baby. A complete credit to your teaching! "

Preparing for your Birth can be a stressful, overwhelming and confusing task. You have enough to organise, wouldn’t it be nice if someone came to your house to talk to you about your fears, what scares you, what complications you are worried about? Take the opportunity to discuss your preferences, get informed about what these entail, ask about all the things no one tells you about. Take the opportunity to get your partner involved and make a plan on how they can be involved.

In addition to this service you can have a Birth debrief to chat about your birth and everything that made up this wonderful day. How you felt, if you have questions and why things happened. This is an opportunity to gush, vent or simply discuss your birth events with someone who understands, and knows your original preferences. A chance to celebrate and work through your birth story together over a cuppa.

  • 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.
