Two antenatal visits in the comfort of your own home where we can spend time looking at – Birth choices in Cornwall, Birth Physiology, Optimal fetal positioning (OFP), Pain relief / Coping strategies, Formulate or review your birth preferences and other birth related topics.

I will be on call 24 hours a day from weeks 38 – 42.
When you go into labour and you feel you need my support just call me and I will come – be this when you experience the first twinge or when you are in established labour, it is your choice.
During your labour my aim is to:
Help you establish a calm birth environment, be this in your home or hospital
Provide practical help regarding labour positions
Provide self help relaxation and breathing techniques
Support your partner enabling them to be as involved as they wish
Offer continuous emotional and physical support to you and your partner
I will remain with you until your baby is born, you are settled and you are happy for me to leave
