My Full Care Package, one-to-one individualised evidenced-based care & bespoke care packages.
Tara's antenatal care was above and beyond our expectations. She imparted a great amount of knowledge and time to us, enabling us to make educated decisions.
In the comfort of your home I see you for regular appointments to fit your needs. These are scheduled to suit you, normally every 3-4 weeks until you reach 37 weeks. From that point on I see you at least once a week until the birth of your baby. From week 37 I will be 'on-call' for you '24 hours each day, everyday until you go into labour whether you are choosing to birth at home or in hospital. After the birth of your baby, and you are well tucked up in bed with your newborn, I will be still available by phone if you need any advice before my daily post natal visits begin.
All antenatal appointments usually last between 1-2 hours. This gives us plenty of time for antenatal checks, address any fears, answer questions about your choices and to build a strong trusting relationship together. You can feel safe and supported to enable you to make decisions that are right for you, your pregnancy and birth. My visits are scheduled to fit around you and your family. I am always available by phone, email or text, if you have any queries or need additional visits. This individualised personal tailor made plan of care can be mutually agreed on, to enable you to receive exactly the midwifery care that you require. If you wish I can accompany you to other appointments you may have, i.e. scans or visits to an obstetrician. I also arrange all scans and can carry out all blood tests as required.
After your baby has been born postnatal care begins. I visit you and your baby daily for the first few days, and then support as needed up to 28 days. My midwifery care provides you with all aspects of your recovery needs and the establishment of effective breast feeding along with the care and well being of your newborn baby and if you decide, carry out the blood spot screening tests. Some mothers and babies are ready to be discharged from midwifery care before this time. When you are ready to be discharged I will leave you a photocopy of your notes for you to keep.
For other care packages, one off Antenatal appointments, Birth debriefing, Post natal & Breast feeding support, or Placenta encapsulation, please contact me directly. **** Due to the lack of indemnity insurance for birth, sadly I am not able at this time to offer birth care. I do have professional indemnity in place for pre and post birth care.
