Having witnessed many different kinds of births, and many different kinds of parents go through childbirth – I began to see a pattern. It was not a particular book or technique that led to a satisfying birth experience and enjoyable postpartum period. It was something else. Something more difficult to put my finger on.
Parents (and parents-to-be) who strike the fine balance between being organized information seekers and being curious, intuitive and open – are the people who really seem to embrace this transition, no matter what. This is what Planning for Birth & Baby has been designed to cultivate. If a birthing couple can do this together – everything, almost always, works out beautifully. Having traveled the childbirth and alternative health landscapes with an open mind for years, my goal is to help parents find what they need and to support them along their unique paths to early parenthood.
Why choose ‘Planning for Birth and Baby’?
- One-on-one support enables you to prepare for your unique situation so you can be ultimately relaxed and excited for your baby.
- Guidance making a Birth Plan makes a big difference. Having an ‘outside’ professional ask you questions you might not think to ask yourselves, and to help you gather and make sense of information, will shed light on what it is YOU need.
- Being as prepared as possible for after your baby arrives is paramount. This is key to a happy transition to parenthood and is so often glossed over in other prenatal material.
- Time to tune in together as a couple and get on the same page – we often don’t make space for this as urbanites but it’s an important thing to do before welcoming another person(s) to the family.
