I’m Erika, wife, mother and positive birth advocate and I am delighted that you are looking for a more positive birth experience. Birth to me is not just about having a baby, it is about the journey, about the inner strength and power a mother finds in those moments, becoming ‘untouchable’ as she births and the confidence she discovers in her body and in its ability to birth.
Every woman’s experience is unique and not every journey is ‘perfect’ but a positive birth is beyond price…
How can you have a positive birth?
Well, for starters, feel free to pop into one of my FREE monthly Positive Birth Movement Groups where we stand out from the crowd and focus on the positive aspects of birth, supporting one another and providing information for better decision making.
As a birth and postnatal doula, recognised by Doula UK, I offer continuity of care that you very rarely find and which the evidence suggests significantly improves the outcomes of birth. My support for you and your partner throughout your pregnancy and birth, will enable you both to grow in confidence and have such reassurance that there is someone here for you at such a vital time. Being half Italian I know all about how family rallies round and helps out a new mother in those early days. Sadly our culture is changing and family isn’t always on our doorstep this is where I can provide the continuity of care to you and your new family as your post natal doula.
There are many ways to prepare for birth and one of the most popular ways nowadays is using Hypnobirthing. As a teacher of the KG Hypnobirthing method, I see couples in groups or individual basis. Hypnobirthing provides parents with confident, calm and more comfortable birth experience, removing fear and replacing it with positivity and solid preparation. If this is of any interest please visit www.wondrousbirth.co.uk
After all your hard work to prepare for the most important time in your lives, there really isn’t a better way to capture the memories and treasured moments than with a tailored photography collection. Whether it be of your lovely bump and newborn pics or perhaps you would like to capture your birthing goddess within with some birth photography? Either way, as a registered Birth Photographer with the International Association of Professional Photographers, I will be able to provide you with a package to suit your needs. Here are some photos I have done for other parents.
When I think of birth I feel...energised...inspired...in awe...full of expectation…and confident in the mother’s ability and I hope that you too will feel the same way when it is time for you to birth positively….
So if you feel that you would like to explore this further then please get in touch. You can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to meeting with you soon….
