Working for UK Birth Centres Ltd I have the great privilege of meeting amazing women and helping them prepare for their birth. Many have been given a high risk label and are told that they are unlikely to give birth normally. Having received intensive midwifery support from me, these women are empowered to given birth gently and naturally to their babies.
We are pro- choice at UK Birth Centres and work with a small caseload of women who we support throughout the ante natal period, spending hours and hours in birth preparation as well as carrying out all the necessary health checks. It is by working this way that we enable women to trust their bodies and maximise the birth process.
The end result is that even when the outcome is not a wished for wonderful homebirth, our clients have our constant support in the post natal period to help them become empowered mothers and encourage the breast feeding to succeed. We are on hand to give intensive emotional and practical support to help them make some sense of their birth.
We midwives are here to help you succeed in birthing your baby and that support will include murmuring words of encouragement, holding your hand and massaging fragrant oils into your tired body. We will remind you to use visualization and positive affirmations to draw your thoughts away from your pain and fatigue and at the same time we midwives will be helping your partner feel involved.
Here at UK Birth Centres Ltd we midwives are able to offer you a bespoke option of care, putting you at the centre. If you want a choice of whom cares for you and where you give birth then contact us today to discuss your options.
