DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS HOW WE TEACH MAY NEED TO CHANGE FOLLOWING THE GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES. OF COURSE WE DON’T KNOW HOW THIS WILL PLAY OUT OR HOW LONG IT MAY TAKE.
As a community midwife, l have just been informed the face to face apts are going to be limited as of yesterday, your midwives will tell you about this when you next see them. It may not affect you massively depending on where you are in your pregnancy.
What l would like to offer is firstly, to carry on playing it by ear, as to whether we might be able to do any sessions face to face in the flesh. I am very aware that meeting a group of people to travel this journey with is as important as getting the information.
What l am now offering is:
That l can do 5 live zoom sessions every Thursday evening 6- 8.30pm with you all present, covering a different part of the journey each week from birth to the babymoon, we will meet each other on the screen, be able to introduce ourselves and ask questions and on the first session we will set up your whatsapp group.
That once a week or weekend we have a zoom coffee hour where nothing is taught we just meet and chat and get to know each other. Everyone will have similar due dates and live locally.
Also, for those of you that are interested in a homebirth but couldn’t attend the myhomebirthmatters session before it stopped temporarily , l can run a zoom session as l have frequently taught the session as a midwife.
Lastly, as a midwife l am happy for you to check in with me by email or phone to answer any queries that you would have asked at those midwife apts that have been suspended during this period.
If by a miracle we can do face to face in the flesh i’m there with bells on. We always have a reunion roast at the park view pub, when all the babes have been born and this will happen when it’s possible
UNTIL WE CAN RETURN TO TEACHING YOU IN THE FACE TO FACE. TAKE CARE EVERYONE WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER.
