THE BIRTH FLOW

Guiding you on your empowered birth journey

 

About Me

Pregnancy, birth, and the growth of a family is one of the most beautiful and magical things about humanity. As a doula and hypnobirthing practitioner, I am privileged to help guide parents on their journey to make these experiences as positive and healthy as possible. I am proud to have received a number of certifications and offer support to families across the Somerset area and also digitally online.

 

What is hypnobirthing? How will it help me?

Birth free from fear with knowledge and support

Hypnobirthing isn't just a trend or new way of birthing. Hypnobirthing is about connecting you with your maternal intuition. Just as your body has the ability to grow your baby, it has the ability to birth them. 

With knowledge and guidance, I can help you to feel in control and prepared for your birth, no matter what your choices are or where your birth journey takes you. 

Hypnobirthing isn't about having a drug-free birth, it is about making choices from knowledge and power, rather than fear. With the added support and magic of hypnotherapy and then adding a layer of Mindfulness, this allows for a positive and life-changing experience. 

How do you want to respond to your birth? Excited and in control or full of fear and worry?

"My husband and I started hypnobirthing classes with Jessika over Zoom when I was 25 weeks pregnant. Despite the limitations of only being able to meet virtually, we were quickly and easily able to establish a trusting and familiar relationship with Jessika thanks to her warmth, openness and constant smile. Our sessions were always thorough and highly informative and it was fantastic to have such detailed advice personalised to our specific hopes, fears and questions. We are now approaching birth feeling informed and prepared for all outcomes, and confident in our plan for as natural a birth as will be available to us. Jessika has continued to be a fantastic support now our sessions have finished and we couldn't recommend her highly enough!" - Betty, online hypnobirthing 2021

What is a doula? How can one help me?

Birth free from fear with knowledge and support

A Doula is a trained companion before, during and after birth. To support the parents and the baby. 

The role of the midwife and doula is very different, the doula provides continuity of care and gets to understand the wishes of the parents around their birth journey providing support before, during and after the birth of their baby. 

Acting as an advocate and helping to signpost to evidence based information when needed so parents can ensure they are always in control, empowered and free from fear during their birth journey. 

Marshall Klaus, MD - A doula is a caretaker of the mother and in studies of over five thousand women, involving comparisons of outcome with and without doula support, this was our finding. There's a 25 percent drop in length of labor. And there's a 40 percent drop in the amount of augmentation with oxytocin, and a 30 percent drop in pain medicines, with a doula, and a 40 percent drop in forceps. And in one study, we noted a 60 percent drop in requests for epidurals.
