To celebrate International Day of the Midwife, UK Birth Centres have teamed up with The Healthy Spirit in Didsbury to provide you with a very exciting opportunity.
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.
As I reflect on the recent births I have attended, I am struck by the powerful belief the Mothers had that they could give birth and in each case they did without any intervention and it was a privilege for me to witness this. It was no coincidence though that these births went well let me explain!
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!
Water birth enables women to give birth in the way their bodies were designed.
“We were not designed to give birth under water!” I can hear you say!
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.
Almost all modern women acquire a due date early in pregnancy and understand that this date signifies an optimum time frame during which human pregnancy should end. However researchers have challenged received wisdom around the notion of the average length of pregnancy (Mittendorf et al1990, 1993, Mittendorf & Williams 1991, van der Kooy 1994).
I am loving the current series of “The British Bake Off” and seeing all those amazing cakes puts me in mind of a birth I attended at home!
