Your week-by-week pregnancy journey.

We are not born with an innate know-how to be mothers. Learning this from women is the key to our survival, enjoyment and coping. 

The support of someone to guide you, make you think, provide options so you can make fully informed decisions on your pregnancy, birth and motherhood.

Healthy pregnancy.

Healthy birth for mom and baby. Transition into motherhood. 

The birth of a baby and a mom.

If you want to get pregnant or are already pregnant, I would love to share my knowledge with you. This is not the usual information you are given. It is the information that is slowly being lost to a highly clinical way of birthing. I will provide you with information that will truly connect you to your baby, that will connect you to your body, that will empower you, and that will enable you to believe in the perfect body that you have been given. I prepare you to believe in Mother Nature’s incredible power that your body knows what it is doing, to trust the process, to trust you as you have been given this incredible powerful ability to birth your beautiful baby.

 

Birthing has been done for millions of years. To have the birth you want you need a team of women to support in you, to hear your fears and build your confidence. This team is crucial to the transition you take into this incredible journey of motherhood that will change you forever.

 

Your journey to motherhood.

That moment you hold your baby for the first time you will experience emotions you never thought possible. You will realise that a new you has been born. In the past we turned to our mothers and grandmothers, and we relied on our community. Things are different now, but we still need our team to help us into this new phase of our life.

 

The importance of your support team.

Your support team will have a profound impact on your labour, your birth and your postpartum journey. Identifying your team is crucial to the result. If you want a very specific type of birth, make sure that your support team is the right fit for you.

 

Empowering women for birth: What no one tells you.

Over the course of a nine-month pregnancy, I will empower you with the knowledge that you can do this! I will work with you on a weekly basis. As each week of your pregnancy is important, each week I will give you more information that will help you build your confidence and knowledge. 

I believe that the experiences a woman has, even those she had inside her own mother’s womb, have an effect on how she gives birth to her child.

 

We will tackle many very different aspects over the 40 weeks including:

  • Choosing your birthing team: midwife, doula, gynecologists'

  • The importance of this team

  • What is a normal spontaneous vaginal birth

  • What is natural childbirth......these days

  • The power of your belief system. Your view of what your body can do

  • Scanning my baby – how many scans?

  • Hospital birth, birthing center or home birth?

  • Hypnobirthing

  • Cloth nappies vs disposables

  • Maternity bras

  • Nutrition for you and your baby

  • Toxins to which your unborn baby is likely to be exposed.

  • What needs to be done now? What needs to be done by the time baby arrives?

  • Your perspectives vs your partners perspectives
