Birth Preparation Tips: know more about what helps

As part of your preparation for labour and birth and it can be useful to know what can be helpful for you and for your labour and what might not.

The intensity and the effectiveness of your contractions, how you manage and work with your contractions and your energy levels and how things progress can be impacted by the environment you are in, the positions you use and how you are feeling. It is worth knowing more and preparing for what you can do before labour starts.

Book a session with me if you have questions, need some additional support or preparation for birth & baby.

Always seek medical support if you are concerned about yourself or your baby. Even if it is just a feeling that something isn’t right.

An experienced specialist in pregnancy, birth & early parenting, I have worked with parents since 2002. I am based in the North East so I regularly work with parents from Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead and across North Tyneside. Face-to-face sessions will continue with North East parents but digital courses and online sessions means I can work with parents everywhere.
