At some point in pregnancy, your thoughts will turn to birth and life with your new baby. And, as an experienced pregnancy, birth and early parenting practitioner, I have a few ideas for you…
Join the Birth, Baby & Family Community – for information and to ask questions about pregnancy, birth and all things baby.
Get some good birth preparation – don’t assume that all antenatal classes and teachers are the same. It’s important to do some research and to go on recommendation. As an experienced birth professional, my opinion is to professional birth preparation to focus on your needs for information, skills and reassurance. An antenatal teacher with good training and lots of experience can make all the difference to you.
Know how to relax and to use your breathing – yoga and pilates will help and then do Relax & Breathe for Birth – so you can focus on using these skills for your contractions, to stay calm and to ease anxiety and panic.
You can also come along to the Relax & Breathe for Pregnancy sessions, which run every month
Find out about all the good postnatal support and know where you can go with your baby – at the Birth, Baby & Family Centre you can access practical and emotional support with Janine, sling info and hire and classes/drop-in sessions for parents with babies, and a sensory den for you and your baby to relax in.
The centre is a welcoming and friendly space, where you can gain support and reassurance about all things pregnancy, birth, baby and for you as a parent.
