perineal massage

Did you know that doing perineal massage during pregnancy you can help reduce the chances of tearing or needing an episiotomy during your birth? Around 9 out of 10 first time mums and 7 out of 10 mums having subsequent births will have some type of damage to their perineum after a vaginal birth. The perineum is the skin and muscular area between your vagina and anus (your back passage) which stretches during childbirth.

Join our webinar to learn more about perineal massage and how to reduce the risk of tearing or an episiotomy during birth.

gestational diabetes

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is the development of diabetes in pregnancy, characterised by high blood glucose (sugar) levels during your pregnancy. GDM occurs during pregnancy when the hormone insulin is not being produced in the right amounts to match your body’s needs. It can be worrying finding out that you have suddenly developed diabetes during your pregnancy, but in most cases, with changes to lifestyle it can be managed.

Join our webinar with our specialist midwife Cathy to learn a wealth of valuable information to help you manage GDM during pregnancy.

colostrum harvesting

Colostrum is the first breastmilk that your baby receives after being born when breastfeeding. It is high in calories and full of antibodies to help develop your baby’s immune system. Collecting and storing colostrum, from around 36/37 weeks of pregnancy can be a great back up plan if baby doesn’t breastfeed well initially. Colostrum can be frozen and stored, then defrosted when needed. It can be a great help if your baby takes a little longer to breastfeed after birth or if more regular feeds are advised, for example, for regulating baby’s blood sugars if mum had gestational diabetes or if baby needs special care.

Join our webinar to learn about techniques for hand expressing colostrum, how to collect it and how to store it.
