A unique one to one session with you and your partner designed to help you both feel more confident as you prepare for the birth of your child.
Private Postnatal Partner Sessions
As you approach the birth of your baby you may be realising how much knowledge and advice you have absorbed over the months and wish to share and reaffirm this with your partner. Many partners, upon realising the importance of their supportive role, become concerned about what exactly labour will be like and how they can best help you.
I offer a private session that can be designed around you and your partner’s needs, and can take place in the comfort of your own home. This time spent together is made up of a mixture of discussion and practical work (plenty of massage practice if desired!), at the end of which, you and your partner should feel better informed and equipped to work together towards a positive birth, however you birth your baby.
Areas of focus –
Looking at your 'birth plan', your expectations and fears.
What labour may look and sound like, start to finish – including contractions and transition.
What’s happening to a woman in labour, the importance of the primitive brain, hormones and adrenalin? How can you make these work for you?
Using your environment at home and in the hospital to make yourself more comfortable for a positive labour, using props such as a birth ball.
The importance of partner support - mental and physical – top tips and hands on massage.
Positions practiced in pregnancy leading to labour positions, what helps and why.
The importance of using the breath and how to encourage a deep full breath.
What’s happening when your partner has a contraction and how you can help?
What it’s like to have a C-section and how you can still make it personal.
‘Hi Liz, Thank you so much for your wonderful introduction to the world of childbirth!
