A unique opportunity to enjoy a luxurious getaway aka babymoon, while getting valuable information about pregnancy & birth. This is a birth and parenting intensive in a luxurious setting with me. It is a time to reconnect as a couple and prepare for the massive changes ahead in the best possible way.

I created this highly specialised package for couples who are:

– busy executives & corporates

– love luxury lifestyle and extravagance

– expect personalised care and attention to detail

– want in depth & up to date information tailored to your needs

– do not want to attend traditional hospital classes but still want the right information

– excited about the prospect of a weekend away with a private midwife

 

 

 

It will not be “all work and no play”. In fact the focus of the weekend is on lifestyle and enjoyment. This is a unique opportunity to enjoy a luxurious getaway aka babymoon, while getting valuable information about pregnancy & birth in a way that suits you.

It is a time to reconnect as a couple and prepare yourselves for the massive changes ahead in the best possible way. I customise the experience to suit your needs and priorities, so you will get exactly what you signed up for and more.

 

Typical session topics include:

Pain control options – epidural, pethidine, gas& air

Non medical comfort measures – breathing, movement & massage

Role of your partner – what, when & how to be the best support

And ANYTHING else you want to bring to these sessions. I have been doing this for over 20 years so there is not much that I cannot help you with or guide you with decision making. I am highly intuitive and work closely with you to create YOUR best birth experience. 

 

My expertise lies in being able to adapt what I know to what you need to know. I am highly intuitive and I work closely with you as a couple to co-create a bespoke package that suits you.
