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
Alternative therapy ideas
Positions for labour and birth
What to do when labour begins
Biomechanics for birth
Pain relief, natural and medical
Partner support ideas
Exploring birth preferences and writing a plan
What to pack
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.
