If you are interested in our services, we are happy to visit you for a consultation appointment. This professional consultation lasts around one hour and gives you an opportunity to raise any questions you may have. Should you choose to book with us, we will together make a detailed plan regarding your individual needs and those of your family.
Most women choose to have their antenatal appointments in their own home and we ensure that the timing facilitates opportunities to get to know the rest of the family and to meet other birth partners prior to the birth.
The usual antenatal appointment schedule comprises:
During these visits we will check your blood pressure, test your urine and assess the well being, growth and position of your baby. There is ample time for us to discuss any current concerns regarding the pregnancy, to help you prepare for labour and most importantly for the time after the birth.
You have access to us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to discuss worries or concerns.
In labour we will offer you the support and guidance that meets your and your partner’s needs. We will stay until you are tucked into bed with your new baby.
As your confidence grows you will need to see us less and less; and by four weeks we usually say good bye.
