One thing I wondered about before I had my home birth - was it going to be better than my hospital births?
Midwives are the specialists in pregnancy and birth!
We believe that the midwife’s role is to assist and care for women; to understand the birth process emotionally, mentally and physically and to support and educate women to be able to make informed choices.
The first hour is the most important hour after your baby is born…
Every woman all over the world is equipped with all that is needed to provide warmth, love, comfort and nutrition to her new baby. Where possible It is important that the first hour of your baby’s life is uninterrupted or not disturbed. In this way the built in instincts are ignited and nature starts to provide the baby with his/her first feed …Colostrum.
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.
Breastfeeding may well be the most natural thing to do when feeding your baby, however it does not all come easy to us.
