"Midwife Liselotte" Maternity  Care  & Support

Your own Midwife by your side:  how can this work out for you? 

Options:

If you are looking for home-based antenatal, birth and/or postnatal care, this is for you! My care and support can range from as little as a single appointment to an extensive customized package.

 

If you are looking for non-clinical care and support, you can book my "LIttle Miracles" services in addition to your HSE-based maternity care.

If you are looking for independent midwifery care, including clinical labour and birth support, you can book me through "Private Midwives" www.privatemidwives.com 

Contact me for more information on 0876457489

Background information:

The Irish maternity care system doesn't provide people with many options and there is very little continuity of carer.

What this means is that your antenatal and postnatal visits are usually very short and you will see lots of different midwives and/or obstetricians along the way. Most likely, you will be giving birth with a midwife who you have never met before and she will not be the one doing your postnatal care either. Generally, your medical care will be well looked after but there isn't much time for questions and little to none opportunity to build a trusting relationship with your care provider. This is very unfortunate because these aspects of maternity care are so important in order to achieve a positive birth and maternity experience.

Your best options are: maternity care by a SECM (Self Employed Community Midwife), these midwives work for the HSE homebirth service or an  independent midwife working for the UK company "Private Midwives" who are a fully insured care provider, providing independent midwifery care in the UK and Ireland.

Or, you could chose care provided by a private obstetrician, however, your private obstetrician will not support you during labour, visit you at home or look after you and your baby on the postnatal unit other then a quick check-up when needed.

What can I do for you?

*Antenatal & postnatal home visits to see how you are getting on, answer any questions you may have, listen to any concerns you may have

*Accompany you at home during early labour, accompany you in the hospital for the birth, visit you at home for your postnatal care.

*ongoing support over the phone or by email when needed, from the moment we meet till 3 months after the birth of your baby

*antenatal education and birth preparation tailored to your own needs

*be there for you when you get back home with your new baby (This could be as early as 6-8 hours after the birth if all is well with you and your baby)

*regular postnatal visits during the first 6 weeks after your baby is born

Note: Most of my care & support packages are IN ADDITION to your clinical care provider, Example: you are signed up to the public, semi-public or private maternity care by the hospital of your choice, you receive your clinical care by them, I provide you with the additional and on-going care and support along the way,  help you build your "toolkit" for a healthy pregnancy,  positive labour & birth experience and optimum postpartum journey. I can accompany you at home during early labour and continue to support you in hospital if you wish. 

For packages including clinical / medical care, please book me through www.privatemidwives
