Naturaliste Midwifery focuses on providing continuity of care for the pregnant women, which in turn is known to build trust, respect and a feeling of security during the birth process.
Working with midwives as a primary caregiver should enable you to feel confident to birth with caregivers who have you and your baby’s best interests at heart.
I believe childbirth is a normal, healthy and happy event in the family life cycle.
My job is to guide you in either a home birth, water birth or hospital setting and I am supported by other midwives and obstetrically trained medical officers throughout the pregnancy and birth should concerns arise.
My role in the antenatal period is to help alleviate and listen to your concerns so when the time comes to meet your little one, you and your partner feel prepared for your changing role from couple to family.
A midwife is there to guide you through the pregnancy from the early weeks, important pregnancy milestones and preparing your own mind, body and spirit for your new arrival.
I will be your primary midwife throughout the labour and birth. During the birth of your baby, I aim to give you the autonomy & knowledge to make informed decisions throughout the birth process that benefit your birth experience and give you a sense of control over the process.
After your baby arrives, I continue to care for you for up to 6 weeks in the home. I can assist you with breastfeeding, infant care, care of the mother and supporting the family in adjusting to a new baby.
Child Birth Education Classes
I hold regular child birth education classes to provide women and couples with hands on tools that promote natural birth.
I am able to offer pap smears in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
