In my experience the majority of healthy women are able to have a natural birth. What’s more, when parents are well informed and prepare themselves in every way for the birth of their baby, it is possible for this triad of mother, father and baby to have a peak spiritual experience and ecstatic natural birth. If you would like to find out more about how to experience natural birth, please don’t hesitate to get in contact and find out more.
Natural Birth Services
To help couples prepare for and achieve natural birth, I offer the following services, counseling and guidance:
- Natural Birth Workshops: workshops are focussed on the spiritual, emotional, physical and social aspects of birth, as well as expanding your theoretical knowledge base about childbirth and aware parenting. The material is designed to give you the tools you need during labour, birth and early parenting.
- Connecting with your Unborn Baby: during these sessions you will be guided to connect with your unborn baby through deep meditation and visualization and learn techniques that will open the lines of communication between you and your unborn baby.
- Waterbirth : water is used for pain relief during labour and if labour progresses well, birth takes place in the water. The baby will only breathe once s/he is lifted out of the water.
- Homebirth: many women prefer to give birth in the privacy and comfort of their home. A professional midwife brings the necessary midwifery equipment to your home to assist at the natural childbirth.
- Gentle Birth: the atmosphere is calm and gentle and the midwife protects this space for you as you labour and give birth.
- Hospital Birth: for those of you who feel safer in a hospital setting, your midwife will guide you through the labour and birth in hospital yet protect your privacy and facilitate the gentle birth of your choice.
- Postnatal Care: Home visits after the birth, to assist and guide, are a godsend in the early days after birth.
- Aware Parenting Consultations: Non-violent and feeling parenting skills to keep you in touch with yourself and connected with your newborn and growing infant. Healing of traumatic birth experiences for mother and baby is also facilitated in these consultations.
