Congratulations, you’re pregnant!
The excitement of your growing bump can sometimes overshadow the things you need to think about when preparing for labour, birth and the postpartum period but no need to worry... That is where I come in!
Have you considered doing a comprehensive birth preparation course, looked into your nutritional needs & safe exercising? In doing so, you’ll be setting yourself up for a enjoyable pregnancy and looking forward to, instead of fearing birth & beyond.
How will you, and your birth partner, prepare for birth? What can you do to ensure you feel in control of your experience instead of it controlling you?
In the words of Jane Weideman,
'Giving birth should be your greatest achievement, not your greatest fear'.
A bump & glide birth preparation course using KG Hypnobirthing gives you the confidence in your ability to give birth.
Pregnancy, the birth of your baby and beyond, is a rollercoaster of a ride, a ride which each woman will experience very differently. Whether it be emotionally, mentally or physically and whether it's your first or subsequent pregnancy.
There are so many things to consider, some which you may not even know about, and yet, once you do you'll realise how logical and important they are for a long lasting and gentle recovery.
“Employers and employees alike find the pregnancy, maternity leave and return to work period in a woman’s career path challenging.”* (*Equality and Human Rights Commission research)
We have a responsibility to improve this. Together. For us and for those coming after us.
In a survey I conducted of over 50 career women, the feedback of this pivotal time in their lives was upsetting, unsettling and on occasion, infuriating.
At bump & glide, the mother is at the heart of everything I do.
There is a wealth of information on how to care for your baby, but nowhere near enough on how to care for you, the mother, at this life-changing time.
You need knowledge. You need support. You need to feel in control in order for you to have the confidence to make informed decisions at every stage of this exciting, and sometimes daunting, journey.
My aim is to provide you with the information you need to help steer yourself towards, and beyond, both the birth of your baby, and the birth of you, as a mother.
