Antenatal Preparation

I offer one-to-one antenatal preparation in the comfort of your own home. These sessions are included in my birth doula package, or are available to book as a stand alone service.

You can direct the content, length and number of sessions. We will discuss via phone and email the support you are looking for, and put together a programme that works for you and your birth partner.

Topics can include: –

  • Debrief of previous birth or hospital experiences

  • Sharing of dreams and hopes for your birth

  • Discussion of fears surrounding this birth

  • Anatomy and Physiology of labour and birth

  • Psychology of labour and birth

  • Visualisation

  • Nesting

  • Hypnobirthing

  • Breathing Techniques

  • Simple Massage

  • Alternative therapy ideas

  • Positions for labour and birth

  • What to do when labour begins

  • Biomechanics for birth

  • Pain relief, natural and medical

  • Relaxation Mindfulness

  • Partner support ideas

  • Exploring birth preferences and writing a plan

  • Assertiveness

  • What to pack

  • Homebirth

  • Waterbirth​

  • Breastfeeding

  • Postnatal Planning

  • Getting to know your baby

And anything else you are interested in!

For comprehensive antenatal preparation I suggest booking three sessions. Each session lasting between 2-3 hours.

Single sessions, lasting 2-3 hours are available for people who have something more specific they would like to discuss.
