Birth after previous caesarean or difficult birth
This page is still being developed. Please email me for more information.
More than just a refresher class.
Note: You do not need to be pregnant to access this service. I have worked with women who needed to do this before getting pregnant again.
Time to go over you last birth - what happened; what worked well; what could have been better. Understanding the process.
Looking forward: how second births are different and why; what are your options; negotiating your care. Including: choosing a caesarean and making a caesarean birth plan; choosing a home birth or birth centre birth; how to have a peaceful birth is hospital.
Individual sessions mean that I can tailor the support and the sessions to you and your circumstances. With years of experience I approach each woman/couple with respect and understanding.
I can also help you access your notes and make appointment to go over your previous birth(s) with midwives - either from the hospital where you gave birth, or independent midwives.
