As your bump pushes up against your lungs and you have extra weight to carry around, you may feel breathless.
Here at UK Birth Centres Ltd we understand that your birth experience is extremely important because not only does it shape how you transition into being a Mother but will remain with you for the rest of your life.
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!
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.
Trust in Birth! This is a mantra that has lost resonance with many because the main stream of Maternity care is given is such a way that shows a lack of trust in your ability to give birth!
Ask any women planning a home birth and they will tell you that there seems to a universal response “You must be Crazy!” I was asked to speak at the Manchester Home Birth Conference recently where we found out that having a planned Home birth means the midwives come to you when you are in labour, they stay and support you and carry everything that is needed for a safe birth!
