It is so important when it comes to birth that you feel safe and relaxed with your midwife, because of the way your hormones operate.
The first week after your baby is born is often busy with family members wanting to meet the new baby. However try to stagger this out as you and your partner need time to adjust to being home as a new family.
Breastfeeding may well be the most natural thing to do when feeding your baby, however it does not all come easy to us.
I've been trying and trying to think of a way to explain private midwifery care in a nutshell to someone who hasn't experienced it. And I think I've finally cracked it...when you have care with a designated midwife, it's all about you. Well, your baby as well, but you feel like the most important person in the room, always.
