Emotional Wellbeing Support

My Birth Matters​

- Birth Reflections Sessions

Birth, feeding and early parenting experiences can be challenging.  For some, the experience leaves them feeling hurt, confused, disappointed, numb, anxious, traumatised.

My Birth Matters is a bespoke support service offered to mums and dads who feel they would benefit from telling their story, being listened to, and supported in reflecting on what happened and how they feel.

Talking can really help.

Sessions are offered on a 1:1 basis in your own home or somewhere you feel comfortable.  Babies and infants are able to be present if appropriate and if you wish.

My Birth Matters is facilitated by Jo Lederer, an experienced antenatal teacher and postnatal wellbeing support practitioner with many years experience of listening to and supporting parents across the transition to parenthood.

Please note that this not a clinical birth debrief or a trauma treatment. Please ask your midwife, health visitor or GP if you feel you need more specialist support. We can talk to you about these options.

The number of sessions will depend on your needs and can be booked as you go.  A minimum of two sessions is always recommended.

Early Days Home Visit

The early days at home can be magical, but often feel challenging and overwhelming, sometimes all at the same time!  We offer a home visit to those who feel they would benefit from talking about how they feel, or just "checking in" with a friendly face (and a familiar one if you've attended our antenatal classes).

These visits are facilitated by Jo Lederer, an experienced antenatal teacher and postnatal wellbeing support practitioner with many years experience of listening to and supporting parents across the transition to parenthood.

They may include talking through your birth or early parenting experiences, and can include a Brazelton Newborn Behavioural Observation

Please note we do not offer medical advice, please contact your midwife, health visitor or GP with any questions or concerns.
