An antenatal consultation can be tailored to your exact needs and will usually last up to 1.5 hours. These sessions are particularly popular for parents who have already had one or more babies in the past. You may wish to:
Debrief on any previous and potential traumatic breastfeeding experiences, to help understand what may have happened and to make fresh plans to avoid or minimise future issues. Using specific relaxation and visualisation techniques, I am able to help you to calmly and effectively release any negative and painful emotions you may still be holding on to, thus enabling you to heal and to move on free from your past breastfeeding stories.
Talk through any specific anxieties or worries you may have surrounding birth and the post-natal period.
Refresh on any aspects of general baby-care, if it’s been a little while since you did it before.
If this is your first baby, you may be interested in a specific workshop on a one-2-one, couple or group basis, on a range of post-natal topics. These workshops are usually at least 2 hours or more in length. See here for more information.
“…chatting to you before she was born made all the difference to my confidence and has transformed our breastfeeding experience compared to last time. I am genuinely enjoying it now!” (Anna, Crowborough)
