Covid Restrictions Update
From the 17th May, NHS Lothian will be accepting two birth partners again throughout induction, labour and birth!
A second visitor will also be permitted in the postnatal wards for 1h each day!
You can read more about it here, including about antenatal appointments and neonatal care.
Meeting other pregnant people right now is harder than ever.
Lockdown restrictions have unfortunately taken away many of the more organic opportunities to meet other mums-to-be and parents-to-be, so fellow doula Emma May at Empowering Birth and Beyond and I have decided to host a free bi-monthly meetup for pregnant people. We will provide a space to come together, meet others, make new friends and have social time dedicated to you and your bump.
You can sign up here.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
