Birth Planning

Plan for a positive experience, however it unfolds!

Planning For Birth and Breastfeeding

Planning for Birth and Breastfeeding

Planning for Birth and Breastfeeding is so important, yet overlooked. Feel empowered making informed, educated decisions ahead of time. Explore your options, know your rights and be clear on who is responsible for which aspects of your care.

 

So who IS responsible?

 

YOU are responsible for making ALL healthcare decisions for you and your baby. Handing over your power does not promote safety, it promotes trauma.

 

Use my knowledge, birth plan template and connections to map out a positive birth experience for you, your baby and your family. Relax into the recognition that there ARE aspects of birth that are mostly in your control: Who is present, where you birth, how you labour and what interventions you’ll accept. These decisions will affect how your birth plays out, so take the reigns. You can plan a positive, empowering and joyous birth experience!
