LUCY'S FLOW DOWN BIRTH TALKS "THE FLOW DOWN" - WATCH NOW

THE PHYSIOLOGY OF BIRTH - MUST WATCH!  |  1h 05 mins
If you only watch one of my Flow Downs - MAKE IT THIS ONE!
How has labour been designed to work? What is the body doing? What might it feel like? Do you know how your body wants to work during labour and birth? How can you help the process? How can you use your body? How can you allow labour and birth to simply do it’s job? We discuss the physiological birth process, the stages of labour and the importance of trusting ourselves.
 
BIRTH PLANS & PREFERENCES   |  58 mins
In my live talk today we discussed the benefits to making a birth plan / birth preferences / birth map and how we can do this in a way that keeps us feeling in control of our birth experience.
PAIN RELIEF DURING CHILDBIRTH  |  59 mins
 
Here we discuss both medical and natural pain relief methods to use in labour and childbirth. We also discuss why pain levels can feel intense during labour and what we can do bring more comfort, in order to improve our birth experience.
 
WHAT TO PACK IN YOUR HOSPITAL BAG  |  57 mins
Packing the hospital bag is definitely one of the late-pregnancy rituals, but sometimes it can cause a bit of a fluster deciding what you’ll need and what you won’t!
 
There is nothing wrong with getting excited about hospital bag packing! Keep it simple, strip it back, and label, label, label! The last thing a labouring woman needs is to be thinking about where the hair bands are!  Here we talk about what is needed for you, your partner and your baby, and you can add to this as much as you like! We talk through some important hacks and go over some of the items that just aren’t needed right away.
 
PREPARING FOR BREASTFEEDING  |  1 hr 3 mins
If you are choosing & hoping to breastfeed your baby when they arrive, it’s a brilliant idea to get prepared in advance of their birth. As a mum who felt let down with her first feeding experience, I went into my second experience feeling more determined than I have ever felt. What I realised was that educating myself about feeding, getting the right help and managing my own expectations, were all vital parts of getting us sorted. How do you know it’s going well? How do you know if there is a problem? How do you know.... any of it?.... Join me live as I share some mum-to-mum tips AND give you some information on where you can find excellent resources online and in your local community to ensure you have excellent support with your feeding desires.
