Tip – Homebirth

For anyone planning a homebirth, the ambulance strike means that the homebirth service will be suspended – it’s important to prepare for moving your birth into hospital and how you can better manage that.

Tip – Confidence

Everyone does parenting differently so it’s important to find confidence in what you do.

It’s not about having all the answers but with information and support you can have confidence in your instincts and your ability to find what works for you and your family.

Tip – Headaches

Headaches can be part of pregnancy for some women, as well as when baby is here. Tiredness and dehydration are often the cause so it can make a difference to drink plenty of water, eat well and often, rest and get some fresh air. Focusing on your breathing to ease any tension can also work well.

If you are concerned about your headaches, if your vision is affected or you don’t feel well it’s also important to get yourself checked out with your midwife, GP or you can contact your pregnancy assessment unit.
