If you are looking for some guidance in helping you prepare for your pregnancy and childbirth journey, and wish to receive a more personalised educational experience, then you have come to the right place.
MIND BODY BABY offers private consultations via Telehealth to assist with birth planning and to deliver evidence-based information about a variety of childbirth education topics so that you can feel confident about your upcoming birth. During your consultations, you will have the ability to ask as many questions as you like, and can tailor your sessions based on your individual needs.
Your partner or birth support person is also encouraged to attend your appointments so they too can increase their knowledge about the labour and birth process and experience hands-on learning with effective relaxation and comfort measures during pregnancy, labour, and support with breastfeeding.
What is a Birth Plan?
A birth plan is an outline of your preferences for labour and delivery. It can be presented as a formal document which can be used as an effective communication tool between yourself, your care provider, and your labour support team.
Your birth plan may include information about the people you would like to be present at your birth, whether or not you wish to receive pain relief, the type of relaxation and comfort measures that you would like to utilise, and your preferences regarding the use of medical procedures and interventions on both you and your baby during the labour and birthing process.
I understand that preparing for birth can be quite overwhelming, so I am here to support you each step of the way. Even if you are unsure what questions to ask, I will help you navigate your way through pregnancy so that you feel well-informed, positive and confident by the time your are ready to give birth!
Remember, just as with any plan you make, it is sometimes necessary to make changes or to deviate from your original plan if something unexpected arises and this may also be the case during your labour. We will go over a number of scenarios during your birth planning consultation to help you feel more prepared shall your plan need to change.
Every birth is beautiful in its own special way, and I look forward to supporting you throughout this wonderful journey.
