What to expect from our first session
After an initial phone conversation, I will meet you at a place of your choice either at my practice rooms or at your home. We will spend some time in review, perhaps going over your pregnancy history and possible health concerns. We would then move onto your ideas, hopes or concerns about your upcoming birth, and your expectations or challenges about parenthood. Finally, you will leave the session with a step-by-step agreed plan and support options for the weeks ahead.
The session will finish when you have reached a level of confidence to move forward. I don’t believe that real learning and growth can be squeezed into a structured timeframe. However, from experience this will usually be reached around the 1.5- to 2-hour mark.
What ever matters to you is important to me. You, your baby, and the wellbeing of your family/whanau count most. My aim is for you to leave our session with a clear plan that will ensure your goals and dreams have a real chance of becoming reality.
