Midwives at NGGynehealth provide a service that complements the obstetricians. Having the midwives as part of the team has enabled us to provide valuable education and support for our pregnant women.
Pregnant women and their partners are seen regularly during their pregnancy, unless the lady is sharing care with her GP in a rural area.
At the initial visit, the midwife will see the pregnant couple, get a complete history, answer any concerns or questions, explain all the tests and give you all the relevant paperwork. This visit is a valuable time to meet and get to know the midwife who, with the obstetrician, will provide support during a very exciting and personal time in your lives.
The midwife is also available for help with any concerns or information needed between visits. The access to midwives in the practice is highly valued by our clients.
The introduction of a Non-Urgent Message service run by our midwives has been extremely popular with our pregnant women
Midwives at NG Gynehealth possess a wealth of experience and wisdom, which has often instilled confidence particularly in our first time mums.
Your care at NGGynehealth does not end with childbirth. We believe that it is in fact, the beginning of an amazing phase of life and we would be only too happy to assist your transition from pregnancy to parenthood. We appreciate that you are on a steep learning curve on changing nappies, recognising feeding cues from the baby, juggling several different roles while coping with the familiar yet trying challenges such as changed domestic dynamics and a constant lack of sleep.
Be it emotional support to build confidence and coping mechanisms or helpful breast feeding advice, we are only a phone call away. We also offer the expertise of an experienced lactation consultant who could help with one to one supervised sessions to enable you to master the critical skills of breast feeding which often facilitates your seamless transition to motherhood and strengthen bonds that last a lifetime.
The decision to breastfeed is probably the best investment you can make in your baby's future. It is a personal decision and breastfeeding is an art that needs to be learned by mother and baby.
If you are prepared with up-to-date information about breastfeeding earlier you are more likely to overcome any difficulties that may lead to early weaning. It also helps to ensure you enjoy your breastfeeding relationship with your baby and have more confidence in your ability to breastfeed successfully.
These effective and helpful classes are conducted by our midwife and lactation consultant, Chris Black, in house.
