After the birth
Emotional Well Being
I believe that every woman has the right to choose the type of birth experience she wants. I hope that attending these classes will give women and their partners the knowledge and confidence to make that choice.
All classes will be done in my home, with the aim of providing a relaxed and comfortable learning environment.
I have also learnt from my own experience that a good support network is incredibly important. I therefore aim to group together parents to be with similar due dates. Having the support of someone who is going through similar experiences and similar times can be invaluable, and I have seen many lifelong friendships form through antenatal classes.

I offer every couple a personal visit after the birth of your baby. I am happy for you to talk to me about your birth experiences, support you with feeding issues or just have a coffee and a chat.
This visit is for support only, and not in place of your normal midwife appointments.
