A few words about why I offer birth preparation consultations…

After running group antenatal classes for many years, I started to be asked for individual sessions by expectant parents who struggled to commit to a course, didn’t fancy the group element or had a specific focus.

I now specialise in running consultations – parents can open up much more, they have the time to properly focus and ask questions, sessions are less structured, more effective and can be booked at a more convenient time.

Individual sessions are a different way of doing birth preparation, an effective alternative to the NCT class style of birth preparation, which isn’t for everyone. Labour and birth is very personal and I love being able to provide personalised sessions that are tailored to each expectant parent.
