Preparation for Labour, Birth & Caesarean

You'll never know what sort of birth you may have, but there a few things you can do in advance to try and make things a little easier. Hypnotherapy relaxation can be a great help to many mums-to-be to calm anxieties and prepare the mind and perineal massage can be useful to prepare the body!

Many women worry about having an episiotomy (a surgical cut in the perineum) or tearing during labour. By starting perineal massage (from around 36 weeks pregnant) you can reduce your risk as massage loosen your perineal muscles, which will need to stretch as your baby emerges into the world. It can be a little tricky with a big bump - but will be well worth the acrobatics!
