Congratulations – you are having a baby! Pregnancy can be a time for celebration and excitement – as well as a time of change, anxiety and questions. It can be a time for information, support and reassurance; when you want to know what you are experiencing is normal and when you want to look after yourself. It is also a time to think about getting ready for the birth of your baby – where to give birth, how to give birth, gathering knowledge and skills and knowing your options.
Some women love being pregnant, for other women it is more challenging. All three of my pregnancies have been different, with different physical and emotional challenges. As a practitioner I see expectant parents for a range of issues which can include birth debrief before giving birth again, or being pregnant after babyloss.
I work with expectant parents to meet the different needs for preparation, information, support and reassurance throughout pregnancy and for birth. With antenatal courses, Relax & Breathe workshops and 1:1 sessions I can provide birth preparation, birth debrief and support with anxiety and specific issues.
For a range of information, you can take a wander around this site’s pages and posts and here’s a guide to some of the best pregnancy & birth books.
