My approach to birth-planning with clients draws inspiration from different areas. One of them is goal-planning. Setting goals can be fun, exciting and also stretch you to consider different areas of your birth you might not have previously thought of.
Through my Clarity Sessions, you (and your partner) get up to four hours of one-to-one time with me. What do we go through:
1. Your previous pregnancies and births. Let's see what worked for you and what didn't.
2. The power of emotion - how do you want to feel during your labour, birth and immediate postnatal period?
3. Defining your biggest, juiciest goals.
WARNING: you might be surprised that these are different to what you originally believed.
4. A reality check - are your current actions in-line with your goals and circumstances?
5. Action steps - finally we will nut out specific actions you can start taking straight away and make achieving your goals one step closer.
How do you make your birth-plan unique to your circumstances, powerful yet flexible?
