Labour & Birth

It’s natural to feel nervous about giving birth, especially if it’s your first time. 

Some women may know they need a caesarean (C-section) long before they give birth, but for others, the decision might not be made until they go into labour.

Your new baby is the centre of your world, but they’ll need you to stay strong and healthy, physically and emotionally, in order to look after them.

Being pregnant and giving birth can both have a huge impact on you physically and emotionally.

Both mother and baby benefit from being in contact immediately after birth. Give your baby your full attention during this precious time.

Giving birth can be a daunting prospect, so it helps to have someone you know and trust to support you on the day.

Breastmilk is the ideal food for infants: it is best adapted to their specific needs. A healthy and balanced diet of the mother is important for the preparation and continuation of breastfeeding. Mixed breastfeeding can interfere with breastfeeding and reduce milk production. It’s hard to reverse the choice of not breastfeeding. If an infant formula is used for a non-breastfed baby, it is important to carefully observe the instructions for preparation and use and to follow the advice of the medical profession. Incorrect use could pose a risk to the child’s health. Socio-economic implications must be considered in the use of infant formula. After 6 months, in addition to breastmilk, water is the only essential drink. Do not hesitate to consult your health care professional if you need advice on feeding your baby.
