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.
On Saturday 6th June from 11.00am until 2.00pm, we are teaming up with the Zenchi Clinic to offer you a free Natural Birth Preparation Day. We will condense our expertise into 3 hours covering topics such as water birth, optimal positioning, Rebozzo and labour massage hypnobirthing, breathing and relaxation. Our aim is that you leave the day excited about your birth.
Here at UK Birth Centres we give the Gold Standard care of case loading midwifery and commit to being there at the birth for all our clients. We can organise our own diaries and only work when necessary, thus leading to a highly motivated work force! We adapt a woman’s care to her individual needs and visit her at home at a time that suits.
Here at UK Birth Centres we provide individualised care for you throughout pregnancy and birth allowing time for us to get to know each other what makes you a unique and amazing individual!
Ina May Gaskin, the mother of modern midwifery, has coined a term called “The Sphincter Law”. The Sphincter Law states:
How will I cope with Labour? Well here is an A to Z of coping strategies that you can use at your birth but many of these will be more effective if you seek a supportive Midwife and remain at home to give birth to your baby.
Men: when the woman you love is being taken over by an oxytocin fuelled trip, you are going to become an adrenalin factory! Why? Because when we were hunter gathers she needed protecting. She still DOES!
Midwives in the NHS have voted to take strike action this months after struggling for years to cope with a deep and enduring shortage of midwives and having their 1% pay rise demand rejected.
Change is the one constant in this universe and as signs of autumn are all around us we see evidence of this. As a midwife supporting a small caseload of pregnant women I am privileged to support them during a period of profound change in their lives.
