Holistic Cesarean Support package (on-call period)

I have facilitated the Holistic Cesarean both within the NHS and privately and pioneered this method. I also use elements of the Jentle Cesarean method.

– 2 x antenatal cesarean birth preparation sessions lasting around 1.5 – 2 hrs each.  With Calming Touch techniques, hypnosis if wanted, anchoring techniques, music, affirmations and aromatherapy oils.

(We will talk about facilitating a “labour period” before the birth if you’d like to which is a beautiful way to allow the birth to feel like exactly that, a birth, a journey, a process, a coming-to-terms-with your baby leaving your body to enter the world.

We will cover all manner of alternative cesarean birth options such as delayed cord clamping, choosing the best hospital and consultant to ensure your wishes are heard and carried out whenever possible, seeding the microbiome, enabling skin to skin in theatre, creating a calm birth atmosphere in theatre and much more.

We can also discuss breathing techniques, comfort measures, and plenty of knowledge to help you make informed and empowered choices, what to expect from your care providers/hospital protocols/navigation of your rights, create your birth preferences and get to know each other and feel comfortable as a team. Your partner if you have one is included in these sessions usually so we can get your birth team gelling nicely).

– On-call for two weeks prior to your planned birth date in case you go into labour before in which case you can call me anytime day or night and I will join you for your cesarian birth.

– Attendance at the birth
(I will facilitate all of the above as discussed in our antenatal sessions as well as being a calm presence and ensuring your birth preferences are heard and understood.

I will make space for your labour period and use a variety of comfort and relaxation techniques. After the birth, I will stay for the golden hour until you are settled and comfortable).

– 1 x postnatal visit
(to talk through your birth if you feel you want to in as much or as little detail as you feel ready to and help with anything from feeding to sleeping. I also offer a relaxing postnatal processing treatment if you’d like one using Calming Touch techniques, aromatherapy oils, music and affirmations).

Most operating theatres only allow one person to support the mother which of course is usually your partner so bear in mind that as your doula I may not be able to be with you during the birth unless you wish me to be your sole support. Some NHS hospitals do allow doulas in theatre too but this is not the norm. This is something that can be negotiated with each individual hospital.

This support package is for planned cesarean and does not include a two week on-call prior to your birth dates so if you do go into labour before your planned date I am unable to be present at the birth but you will be fully aware of how to create the Holistic Cesarean without me as your partner can be shown how to use the techniques of you wish.

COST: £800

Rebirthing

I offer a birth reclaiming service known as rebirthing which is a healing event for women and their partner and baby and is very helpful if your birth didn’t go according to plan or felt traumatic.

If you are healing from a caesarean birth or wanting closure on a vagina like birth, this is a healing and effective way to process and reframe birth trauma. I have personal experience of this also.

The cost includes meeting prior to the rebirth to talk through your experience and discuss what you would like. Please get in touch if you’d like more information on this.

COST: £350
