‘Birth…it can’t really be planned for, right…and any birth ‘plans’ you make go straight out of the window anyway, yeah…’
You may be reading this nodding your head because someone may have said that to you and it’s made you question your desire to explore your choices, to attend any kind of antenatal education sessions, to put together any birth preferences…and replaced it with niggling doubts and fearful of birth!
Yes, birth can be wonderfully unpredictable, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t take steps to enable yourself to feel the most prepared that you can be for the arrival of your little one.
And like my Dad always said to me…’Opinions are like arseholes…everybody has one…’!
I remember all too well that feeling of being overwhelmed by information and opinion from all different sources during my pregnancies and during my second pregnancy, it really wasn’t until I signed up to do a wonderful birth preparation programme that I felt the anxieties about the birth start to melt away and I gained the confidence to ensure my voice was heard and my birth preferences were noted!
That’s why I became a positive birth coach so that from early pregnancy, through to a positive birth experience and into the first throws of parenthood; I can be by your side, supporting you as you prepare for the arrival of your little one, however you need it.
The main thing I can tell you is that there really is no one size fits all approach and I work with my clients to help them get rid of those anxieties or negative beliefs they may be feeling or having and build their inner confidence to rock this birth and parenting thing their way and that is what is most important to me.
I will support you to ensure that everything regarding the birth of your baby has been agreed by you and even if you need to put your care in the hands of the wonderful health professionals we are so fortunate to have in this country, you will know that you have had a positive birth experience.
In fact it can be one of the most empowering experiences of your life 💖💖
If you are in Milton Keynes or surrounding areas and this all sounds pretty good to you and you are feeling YES! I want to take charge of my birth experience, have a look around my website www.mini-miracles.co.uk for more details on the different workshops and courses available and if you have any questions, get in touch!
I so look forward to working with you to rock your pregnancy, birth and parenting…your way! ☺️
