Having a baby is a very exciting time – it does not matter whether it is your first baby or you are adding to your existing brood, nothing is more special than a new baby.
It is equally important for all new Mums to experience the right sort of care after the birth of their baby as on the run-up to the happy event, which is a good thing in some areas because postnatal care for Mums is excellent. You can get more information about afterbirth care by reading online.

Midwives play an extremely important part in the safe arrival of a new baby as well as pre and postnatal care for the mother.
There are many advantages to choosing a private midwifery service including:
The increased likelihood of choosing to have a natural birth
Having your own personal midwife can help to make the whole experience positive and even more special as you have a one-on-one experience with the midwife rather than being allocated whoever is on staff in a hospital when your baby is due to be born
A personal midwife will have more time to dedicate to a new Mum helping with breastfeeding problems etc
The Australian College of Midwives states that evidence suggests that mums are less likely to need pain relief and more likely to go full term if they have a private midwife.
Postnatal depression is not something that many new Mums to experience but it can and does occur. It is however less likely to be a problem if you have your own personal midwife attending to your every need.
