Thank you for taking time to find out about UK Birth Centres Ltd. We have a team of midwives who aim to enable you to achieve the most natural and inspiring birth of your baby. We work in partnership with you during the antenatal period and by using relaxation and education you will feel your confidence grow as learn to trust your body to give birth safely.
It is the principal of individualised care often called “continuity of care” that we adhere to at UK Birth Centres, as we feel it is the Gold Standard of Midwifery Care. Our aim has always been to provide sensitive, non-intrusive support and encouragement for the woman in our care. Our philosophy for the birth is the maintenance of a quiet and private environment, where you, the woman, can feel safe and uninhibited and can labour without distraction.
We enable you to concentrate on your own capacity to give birth and there is a lot of evidence that by having your own midwife, who you have grown to trust, decreases the need for drugs, reduces the caesarean section rate and increases the normal birth rate leading to enhanced maternal satisfaction.
At UK Birth Centres the midwives have a small caseload of expectant mum’s who they get to know really well, having time to familiarize themselves with each individuals planned approach to the birth. The Midwives arrange to carry out all antenatal appointments at a time to suit in your own home. They allow ample time during these visits to ensure that you are reassured, forming a relationship of trust which enable you to feel less anxious about the birth.
Birth is an emotional as well as a physical activity and the hormones that are responsible for the process really work at their optimum if you feel well supported and safe. Why not give us a call?
