How do you view birth? I have heard so many tearful birth stories from women who have been left traumatised and emotionally scarred by their birth and they all said the same thing.
“People would dismiss my pain and emotional trauma with the offhand remark that all that matters is a healthy baby!”
How can wanting a healthy baby which is indeed every Mothers prayer be an either or choice for women! Why can’t you also have an empowering birth as well, a birth that leaves you glowing with pride, love and able to be a parent?
Here at UK Birth Centres Ltd our Midwives are enthused with the notion that all women deserve to have a birth that leaves them feeling emotionally strong. We are pro-choice and work within the “Midwives Rules” as set out by the Nursing and Midwifery Council and have a wealth of Professional experience.
We have a small caseload of women who we support throughout the ante natal period spending hours and hours in birth preparation and carrying out their health checks. By working this way the result is that women trusts the birth process and we Midwives have job satisfaction.
If a woman plans a Hospital Birth, then the midwives at UK Birth Centres will go with our clients and continue to support them in Hospital. Our clients have their own midwife with them either at home or in Hospital to help them achieve an empowered birth. We are on hand to give intensive emotional and practical support throughout their birth.
Here at UK Birth Centres Ltd our midwives are able to support women both professionally and emotionally. We are able to help women succeed in birthing their babies by murmuring words of encouragement holding their hand stroking their hair and massaging fragrant oils into their tired bodies. Offering nourishing fruit teas and spring water helping them to use visualization to draw their thoughts away from their pain and fatigue and at the same time helping the partner feel involved.
In short, there are women who for no fault of their own when it comes to birth are very sensitive to external stimulus and will find they need the extra emotional support that having their own midwife will bring. We are able to offer this bespoke form of Midwifery support to such women and as a result have witnessed many women having amazing births that leave them feeling invigorated and ready for Motherhood!
