Planning For Birth and Breastfeeding

r (seePlanning 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.

 

I’ve undertaken Catherine Bell’s Birth Cartography course (see The Birth Map here) and can provide support, information and referral/connections to support you to map out not only your expected birth experience for you, your baby and your family, but contingency maps as well. Relax into the recognition that there ARE aspects of birth that are mostly in your control and for those aspects that aren’t, know that you can prepare for them too. Your decisions will affect how your birth plays out, so take the reigns. You can plan a positive, empowering and joyous birth experience!

How can I help?

“Thank you so much for all your kindness and support during the last few weeks of my pregnancy. Thank you for attending one of the most special days of my life; the birth of my second son. You make the most amazing, supportive doula and I wish you all the best with it in the future.”

Louise

“Thank you so much for all your kindness and support during the last few weeks of my pregnancy. Thank you for attending one of the most special days of my life; the birth of my second son. You make the most amazing, supportive doula and I wish you all the best with it in the future.”

Louise

“I can’t thank Aimee enough for her support, encouragement, professionalism and genuine care she showed me when I was so worried about breastfeeding my second child. Aimee provided me with information and guidance to ensure my baby and I had the best start possible for our breastfeeding journey. Because of that I have been breastfeeding for almost 12 months now! I highly recommend anyone needing advice on anything baby/breastfeeding related to contact Aimee, you won’t regret it.”

Alex

“Aimee went above and beyond. She was outstanding in all aspects of her service.”

Sean

“I am so grateful that Aimee could support River and I during this beautiful but very vulnerable time. River is now 15 weeks old and is still learning how to feed, but doing wonderfully. It is such a great comfort to know that if I ever needed additional support, she is there for me. Aimee is a kind, warm and wonderful person who gifts her knowledge and perspective in such a calm, intelligent & whole person way; I felt truely held. I could not recommend Aimee and all her talents enough!”

Jane

“Aimee has been a light in the dark for me when it came to me breastfeeding. She has helped me overcome many obstacles breastfeeding both my girls and been a champion in my corner when I didn’t have the strength to do so. Her knowledge is extensive and helped guide me through tongue ties, combination feeding, low supply, pumping and mastitis. I think what’s always stood out to me is Aimee’s happiness to pass on the knowledge of breastfeeding and belief that our bodies are made to do this and we just need to believe in ourselves, all whilst respecting my choices.”

Nena

“Aimee has journeyed with me through all three of my pregnancies and two miscarriages. She attended the birth of my second child, caring for my elder child throughout my labour. She is so caring, servant hearted, and willing to help inform and counsel me throughout the birthing journey in every way possible.”

Do you need more?

Perhaps you need birth or breastfeeding support beyond a planning session. I am a birth doula, lactation consultant (IBCLC) and Calmbirth educator, providing doula and lactation consults and Calmbirth classes. I would love to support you further!
