Caring Hands Wellness Program


This month I would like to share with you some information regarding the wellness program that I have developed for expectant mothers and their families. For the months of August and September, I am offering a 10% discount on any Wellness Program package purchased. This also includes gift vouchers. Please read on to find out how supportive this service is for yourself and family or for someone you care about that is expecting a new baby.

The Caring Hands Wellness Program supports mothers and their partners to remain healthy in pregnancy and prepare well for birthing, breastfeeding and parenthood.

Because this is such a personal journey, I endeavour to cover only the topics that are most important and of most interest to you.

All programs are one on one with your midwife and will take place in your own home. They will be tailored to your interests and may be between 6 hours to 10 hours given over 1 to 3 visits.

The topics we may cover may include all or some of these:

* Self care in pregnancy for body, mind and spirit.

*Normal and not so normal physical and emotional changes in pregnancy

*Exercise and nutrition

*Strategies to keep a well balanced life

*Techniques for yoga, meditation and relaxation

*Birth preparation- anatomy and physiology, stages of labour, active birth, pain in labour, management of pain, drug free, drugs and intervention.

*Birth day discussion

*Partner and support person’s role and assisting them with understanding how they can help

*Physical and emotional changes after your birth

*Breastfeeding: Specialist support by IBCLC Lactation Consultant

*Antenatal breastmilk collection

*Hello Baby!! Understanding your newborn

*Benefits of massage for mother and baby

*Further reading and websites

*Support networks
