I am very much aware that for some women, the thought of giving birth is is a bit daunting. I offer several options to help you prepare and adjust to the myriad of changes your body is undergoing.
My classes cover relevant aspects of pregnancy, labour and birth, adding to your existing knowledge and giving you and your partner the confidence to make informed choices and decisions surrounding labour and early parenting. The class is held over one day, the content covered is from a midwife who is currently working in the field. The information about labour and birth covers the stages of labour and the tools you can use from the start of labour going through to giving birth. I am a Lactation consultant and as a mother, I know how challenging breastfeeding can be. Following this class you will have the knowledge about what you can do as a mother to master the art of breastfeeding and the importance of getting it right in those early days and weeks.
You should not feel that you have to do this on your own. I am available to visit you in your home, fine tuning what you have learned from the class and the many people whom you have come in contact with since your baby came into your arms. The most common words I hear are “that no one told me this” or “where were you when I was in hospital”.
If you are planning to have your baby at Pindara hospital, I practice in the postnatal clinic. If you plan to go to Gold Coast Private Hospital, you could find me on the ward, birth suite, special care nursery or out and about providing home visits. What if your Obstetrician is Dr Andrew Cary, you may see me there as well?
