Your labour and birth
Whenever and however you intend to give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life.
Choosing your birth support is a very personal decision. Making the right choice often begins with looking at the birth you want to achieve and then choosing the model of care which offers the best care for you. We support and respect you in your choices for a home or hospital birth, or our very own Protea Birth Unit.
At your antenatal appointments we will discuss your concerns, preferences and wishes for your birth experience. We can inform you about choices in childbirth, and in our Antenatal Classes, teach you about different pain management and relaxation techniques.
We are on call to our clients 24/7 which means that we are ready to be by your side for your birth and support you no matter what time of day or night.
Our support continues after your baby has arrived. We remain with you to facilitate immediate skin to skin and the first breastfeed and we will help you get “settled in” with your baby.
It will be one of the most challenging and powerful things you will ever do. You will grow in ways you never thought possible. You will emerge a more stronger and powerful woman ~ no matter how your birth unfolds.
You can do this!
