Birth Preparation Tips: Prepare Well!

prepare well for labour and birth

As an antenatal teacher, this is – obviously – something I feel very passionate about. Not all birth preparation is the same and we all have different needs but there are some basic essentials when preparing for labour & birth.

Being told what to do is not preparation, however being provided with a foundation of knowledge and a toolkit of strategies can help you know more about your options and to stay calm and gather information to make decisions. Good birth preparation is about being able to be involved, to say what you need and to navigate any challenges.

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

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.
