Preparing you for a positive and empowering caesarean birth
Some people know early in their pregnancy that giving birth by caesarean is the right choice for them. For others it is due to complications or other information coming to light later in the pregnancy or during labour.
Choosing to give birth to your baby by caesarean can sometimes be a difficult decision and often knowing what to expect, as with vaginal birth, can make the planning process easier and remove uncertainty and fear.
I use my expert knowledge as an experienced midwife and my own personal experience of having a caesarean birth to teach this workshop, as I believe everyone should have a positive birth experience regardless of how their baby comes into the world.
This 3 hour workshop will cover:
What is a caesarean birth and what happens before, during and after
Making a caesarean birth plan
How to promote the production of your hormones to promote bonding and feeding
Supporting the microbiome (gut health) of babies who are born by cesarean and why this is important
Breathing and relaxation techniques which can be done in pregnancy or during your caesarean to help you feel calm and in control
Making a postnatal recovery plan
I have also attended the Spinning Babies training and am able to guide you in optimal fetal positioning to promote comfort in pregnancy and help to flip a breech baby.
After you have been on the workshop you will have all the information you need to complete your birthing preferences/birth plan and will be able to look forward to meeting your baby!
