Come and join us for an awesome night out!

home birth Canterbury

If you are interested in pregnancy, birth and newborns come and join us for an evening of inspiration and information! I'm really looking forward to being part of Kāhuarau, an event put on by Home Birth Canterbury as part of Home Birth Awareness Week 2017. I will be sharing about the role of a doula, what opportunities lie at the feet of future NZ doulas and how these could benefit future NZ parents. Whether you are a health professional, parent, or parent-to-be, planning to give birth at home or not, you'll definitely get heaps out of attending! Don't miss out on your ticket!

Birth Matters… for the rest of your baby’s life

microbirth

Did you know that the process during birth, what happens in the first hour after birth, and then how you feed your baby for their first years can set them up for disease prevention for the rest of their life? Birth appears to be set up as one giant 'inoculation'! So what happens to the infant who had human intervention during their arrival?

Microbirth School (founders of One World Birth, and the film Microbirth) have released a FREE webinar which explores the process of 'seeding' the microbiome at birth, and the implications of human intervention. Available until Tuesday, this is a must see for any pregnant family, or health professional working in the maternity sector.

Premature Baby? Every second makes a difference

Premature baby? Don't immediately clamp & cut the cord at birth! "Preemies have left a whopping 50% of their blood behind in the placenta. A delay in clamping of just 45sec decreases the risk of complications, including life-threatening necrotising enterocolits." -Kate Evans, Bump: How to make, grow & birth a baby

Rest, rest, and rest some more…

Pregnancy Multitasking

Growing a whole human being is HARD WORK! So anytime you feel like a rest, and can, just do it!! Learning to disregard the 'list of things to do' and focus on taking care of you and your womb baby is great training for life with a newborn.
