Antenatal support

Antenatally, our sessions will allow time to get to know you and what’s important to you, your hopes and fears, building our relationship and trust. We talk about your birth preferences and previous birth/life experiences that feel important and relevant (if you want to), I help you find and understand evidenced based information so that you can make informed choices in your preparation. In further sessions, we can talk about birth physiology and different birth paths (such as interventions and abdominal birth) so that you feel as prepared as possible and are armed with birth knowledge. We spend time discussing how the early days and weeks after birth might look for you, and I can help you form a postnatal plan. If you choose to have my support at your birth, we will talk about the ways I can help you during your labour.

Birth support

During labour, I provide continuous emotional and practical support for the duration of your labour. I hold and protect your birth space, support a calm environment, am a helping hand and support for your birth partner, and can offer comfort measures for you (such as counterpressure/hip squeezes, support with positioning that aids birth physiology, breathing and relaxation techniques). I stay with you after birth for the first few hours until you are settled, and can help with baby’s first feed.

Postnatal support

Postnatally, I can offer support to you and your family after birth. This includes help with feeding baby (bottle/breast/chest), bathing baby and nappy changes, providing you with a nutritious meal and I am available to answer, or help you find answers to, any questions you might have. There is a chance to talk about your birth experience and have a listening session. I can signpost you to further postnatal support locally, should you want it. I can talk about how yoga can support your postnatal recovery, we can practise breathing and pelvic floor awareness together (should you wish to) and I can guide you through simple movements/restorative postures that will help ease tension and give you a chance to properly rest while I hold the baby.

Take a look at my basic packages below for ideas of what I can offer. There are options here to have support through the whole journey, or just part of it. People are unique, as is birth, so I can offer bespoke support if there’s something you have in mind that you don’t see here. I’d love to have a chat with you, and see if there’s a way I can support your needs.
