So, as work has not been going to plan for the last two and a half years, I have decided on a complete career change.
After the wonderful birth experience I had with my son, I have decided I want to help and support other parents in having positive experiences right through from late (uncomfortable) pregnancy to labour, birth and into the postnatal period, providing much-needed postnatal support.
One of the things I believe helped me to achieve my empowered birth was consistency of care which is something I hope to be able to provide for couples.
Services I am considering offering are:
Massage – pregnancy, for partners, workshops for labour massage, baby massage and postnatal massage to help with postnatal depression
On call labour doula
Postnatal doula with a focus on aiding women with PND
Now, I know this seems like a lot. It IS a lot and I don’t plan on doing it all at once. I’m aiming to build up my range of services over a period of about 7 years.
I’m not taking this lightly!
