As your bump pushes up against your lungs and you have extra weight to carry around, you may feel breathless.
I have always found pregnancy amazing and beautiful. Your body goes through many changes and endures so much but sometimes not all of these changes are pleasant and can leave you feeling uncomfortable, worried and tired. Most of these changes are very common and not dangerous. I will discuss a few common aliments and what you can do to feel better.
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.
Ending week 12 the final week of your first trimester and your baby has changed beyond all recognition from week one!
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.
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.
Wouldn’t it be great if you were asked “Would you like to have your own midwife to attend you birth?”
This woman emerged from her birth a triumphant Mother. She was healed from her previous trauma and felt restored and empowered!
