Moving into Motherhood

The postnatal period is one which challenges women in different ways. Whether it is your first baby or whether you have many babies – your life changes inexplicably with every birth and new family member.

At My Midwives we are recognising the massive gap in focus on this important time and want to provide reassurance and guidance through this maze. We recognise that often women become very anxious and may even suffer from mental health issues and we want to also help develop some strategies to combat this.

In 2020 we are launching Moving into Motherhood – our support services designed to provide that close support for women over this period. This package is already part of our Ultimate Care package offered to our continuity clients but for women who are seeing a private obstetrician or having care in the public sector this offers you a new level of reassurance.
