Preparing for Birth

Private Antenatal Sessions based on your own situation and preferences

Private antenatal sessions are facilitated in your own home, at a time to suit you. Pregnancy passes by so quickly, often things can be overlooked and decisions can be made without any real research going into it. The physiology of birth is often not discussed fully during your pregnancy and sometimes you can be unaware of the normal physiological changes your body will prepare for and you can be overwhelmed by the process once labour arrives. Some of the topics we will cover are below:

  • Debrief/listening session of any previous experiences
  • Birth physiology and understanding the birth process
  • Recognising labour onset
  • Active birth
  • Optimal fetal positioning
  • Pain management
  • Relaxation
  • Information regarding childbirth and interventions
  • Building your birth preferences or birth ‘plan’ 
  • Infant feeding
  • Caring for your newborn and yourself
