My ServicesHere's how I can help you recover and move forward from a negative or traumatic birth experience...
…or plan for your ideal future birth.
Sometimes birth doesn’t go to plan, no matter how much planning and preparation we do.
At other times, the way we are made to feel by the people around us during the birth and in the wider perinatal period, can have a profound effect on the way we feel about ourselves.
3 Step Rewind for Trauma
The three step rewind for resolving birth and other perinatal traumas, is a fast and effective process for lifting the negative and limiting emotions from your memory.
The process is carried out over 3 sessions and the positive effects are often felt after the first session.
If you are experiencing symptoms such as flashbacks, anxiety, overwhelm, hyper-vigilance, loss of confidence – then this could be just what you need to help you move forward. Or it may be that your birth experience has left you feeling afraid of getting pregnant or having another baby.
Birth Afterthoughts Session
This is a 90 minute zoom session that allows you to talk through your birth experience with a supportive, experienced and knowledgeable midwife. You can review your maternity notes with me, if you have them. You will be able to ask me all the questions you have to fill in the missing pieces of your birth experience.
We will discuss next steps – feedback or making a complaint, resources for helping you to feel heard by the hospital/maternity services.
We may be able to discuss future births. I will provide some self- care resources, if needed.
As a practising midwife with over 15 years experience, I am perfectly placed to discuss current and evidence-based best practice. This will assist you in discovering your choices and options and making the informed decisions that are right for you and your family.
Birth Choices & Planning
This 90 minute session will give you the opportunity to explore your birth options and preferences with a trauma-informed, experienced midwife.
Whether this birth is your first, second, third, fourth or greater – this session will provide you with the opportunity to discuss and explore your options and choices for your labour and birth and will cover subjects such as:
Place of birth, induction of labour, physiological birth, operative vaginal or caesarean birth. Third stage of labour. Pain/sensation management options. The golden hour.
After our session I will send you a follow up email with links to useful resources/ subjects we have discussed.
1 Hour Consultation Call
This one hour session gives you the opportunity to access my midwifery knowledge and expertise to discuss anything pregnancy, birth and postnatal related in strictest confidence. (Please note, I am not a lactation consultant and therefore not the best person to provide expert breastfeeding advice).
I do not profess to know everything! but I will answer your questions, discuss evidence with you and provide you with information to assist you in making choices that are right for you and your family and your maternity care.
I will send you a follow up email summarising our chat and detailing resources used or mentioned so that you can continue your deliberations.
