METHOD OF WORKING
During pregnancy, we usually meet a couple of times to get to know each other. During our appointments I will provide you with information and I will tell you about the choices you can make in advance about the different ways in which you can give birth. And there is of course every opportunity to talk about your personal questions, hopes, wishes and/or fears. If needed I can help you make a birth plan and I’m available for phone or email support when questions or concerns arise.
During birth, I provide emotional, practical and informational support to you, adapting to what is needed. I am able to offer you help and suggestions on comfort measures such as breathing, relaxation, movement and positioning. My most important role is to provide nurturing, continuous support and reassurance. I will stay with you until after the baby is born and you feel okay and are happy.
Postnatal, I come to visit you at your house once more to look back on how things went and to have the opportunity to talk over the birth experience with you.
