Communication With Your Medical Team

Communication With Your Medical Team

It’s so important to have the best possible working relationship with the midwives or doctors who support you before, during and after the birth of your baby. Good two-way communication makes a huge difference.

We will guide you to communicate positively with the medical team, so that you can gain from their amazing knowledge, expertise and experience, while feeling free to express your needs and wishes and to let them know how your body is doing.

It’s helpful for you to know that it’s ok to ask questions and to be informed. And it’s important for you to trust your own awareness of your body’s responses and rhythms and feel free to communicate them in a way that means you are heard.

This contributes hugely to a sense of control right through childbirth. You can value and appreciate everything that the medical team offers and at the same time take part in decisions as the birth of your baby unfolds. Experience shows that women who do this are more likely to feel satisfied with and happy about their experience of birth.

Confident Childbirth hypnobirthing classes will give you effective and powerful communication techniques that can make all the difference to how you feel about your baby’s birth.
