So lets start with this ...
I want you to know,
I totally get it ...
You are about to do one of the most intense things of
your entire life & you're feeling a little anxious, It is
completely natural & you are not alone.
I've been there, & now support, inform & educate women,
couples & families across London & Cheshire
in all aspects of Pregnancy & Birth.
Not being able to predict what will happen during your Labour,
can make you feel that what happens in Labour & Birth is
completely out of your control.
Traumatic Birth stories from well-meaning family & friends can make
it seem that giving Birth will be a difficult & fearful experience.
Alongside misinformation, such as medical assistance & intervention being the norm & inevitable to birth your baby safely even
in a straightforward pregnancy.
Whether this is a first baby, a subsequent pregnancy with no under
lying health conditions or youre having a caesarean for medical
reasons there still may be options you haven't yet
considered or been made aware of
You may be finding it difficult to distinguish between necessary medical advice, guidance & recommendations. Or need help to understand the benefits & risks in making certain decisions.
You may not have been given the chance to have a through discussion about your maternity care or be given any information on how to prepare emotionally & physically for Birth, however you choose to Birth your baby.
Continuous emotional & practical support throughout from the same person may be lacking. You may have unanswered questions, need unbiased information to make a Birth plan, get reassurance or need guidance on how best to communicate with Health Professionals.
Your partner may want to be fully involved but is unsure of how best to support you in Pregnancy & Birth in the unfamiliar territory of maternity services,
Most women go into pregnancy under the misapprehension that maternity services will take care of all their emotional, physical & practical needs in Pregnancy Labour & Birth, as well as providing medical care.
It always comes as a surprise that maternity services not only
often fall far short of this but are only responsible for essential
medical obligations. Many women are left feeling unsupported, not listened to, ill informed & cohersed into medically unnecessary procedures & interventions
I provide options
Birth preparation is key to a positive birth experience, however, your baby is born. Learning about Birth physiology, knowing how to work with your Labour hormones & your birth environment, feeling confident & supported in your birth choices with continuity of care from a
Doula gives the best Birth outcomes.
Even if a caesarean is medically necessary for you, all of this still applies, whether you are birthing your baby in theatre, a consultant-led unit, MLU or at home, with the right preparation you can birth your baby
without fear, anxiety & stress, instead feel calm, relaxed &
excited for the moment you meet your baby
Whether you choose one of my Birth Services or Complete Antenatal
& Hypnobirthing Programme, I alleviate your fears, answer all your questions with unbiased & personalised information, talk through all your options & show you how to navigate the current maternity systems
at Mid & East Cheshire & Countess of Cheshire Hospital Trusts.
I help you to advocate with Health Professionals, ensuring they
become an essential part of your support team.
I give you a thorough understanding of how Birth really works,
Providing you with physical, practical & mindful techniques to
deal with contractions & every stage of Labour.
I prepare you for every eventuality & give your partner a clearly defined role, so they feel fully involved & you are both completely in tune, they know what to do, recognise when to do it & how to carry it out.
I am here for you continuously from pregnancy, providing all your emotional, physical & practical support working alongside your Health care Professionals. We will have a thorough discussions on all aspects of your maternity care, creating an experience that is individual to you & your baby.
I fully support you & your partner throughout the Birth,
care for you Postnatally & provide guidance with your newborn.
My Antenatal packages will teach you exactly what you need to know, enlighten & empower you, ensuring you go into Labour feeling
confident, & well supported knowing what to expect.
I will ensure you will feel, calm, relaxed, fully prepared &
looking forward to the Birth of your baby.
We remember the Birth of our babies all our lives, let's make your memory of your Birth experience a positive one
“ Dear Jade
it has been such a pleasure getting to know you, having you on my team
& guiding me through my pregnancy & birth.
Fraser is very happy to be here & I am delighted at how smooth,
calm & peaceful his birth was, with all thanks to you.
You were a real expert, mentor & friend throughout the process &
it wouldn’t have been the same without you.
Thanks for all the encouragement & kindness.
You are an inspiration! "
