After Birth Listening
Sometimes giving birth can result in unexpected events, for example emergency procedures, premature birth or anything else that you may have felt unprepared for.
Whatever your experience of childbirth, it is not uncommon to be unable to recall every detail of the event or for time to feel blurry.
The After Birth Listening Session allows you time to talk and reflect on your previous birth experience in a relaxed and private environment. This can help you to make sense of what happened and answer any questions you may have. The service may also help you to prepare and plan for future pregnancies by talking through your previous birth experiences.
Preparing for Vaginal birth after a previous Caesarean can evoke many emotions - excitement and fear rolled into one.
