“Every flower blooms in its own time”

‪After growing these flowers from seeds and waiting patiently for them to bloom this experienced mother was ready for her 4th child to arrive earthside when he was ready #HomebirthJustHappened #homebirth #Waterbirth ‬

It has been a privileged to support this experienced mum as she navigated her options and developed a birth plan that supported her to safely welcome her baby earthside at #home in the #pool #continuity #homebirthjusthappened

It was a bittersweet day today saying goodbye to this lovely family who birthed their baby at the start of the month with our RSH colleagues. We have been privileged to support them throughout pregnancy and the postnatal period. #continuity

This amazing 1st time mum listened to her baby and followed her instincts to birth with our colleagues at @RSCH_Maternity where she absolutely rocked her birth bringing her baby in to the world with the aid of water. #BirthIsAmazingWhereverItHappens

‪Last week we had the pleasure of supporting this family as they explored the evidence and navigated their options to develop a birth plan that felt right for them #BirthIsAmazingWhereverItHappens @RSCH_Maternity #continuity #information #choice #support #BetterBirths ‬

Bye bye bear

‪Another farewell this week as this family embarked on the next step of their parenting journey. Sometimes birth plans change but it’s always a privilege to walk beside couples as they navigate their options and birth their babies #continuity #namedmidwife @RSCH_Maternity ‬

Hello little fella

‪Last week we said goodbye to this lovely family.

It was a pleasure to support them as they navigated their choices and made a birth plan that they felt comfortable and confident with.

As part of our model we make every effort to support our caseload wherever they birth their baby.
