Empowering Families To Thrive: Perinatal Care for All!

Updated: Mar 27

We don't all start at the same line regarding our mothering journey. Read on to know why and what you can do about it.

In the United Kingdom, birthing safety for most women is well-established. However, data from a 2020 NHS England survey sheds light on the diverse experiences within our maternal healthcare system that still impact birthing experiences today in 2024.

While 55% of births were spontaneous vaginal deliveries, 13% were instrumental, and 30% were via Caesarean Section, there remains a notable absence of reflections on near misses, miscarriages, stillbirths, and the long-term impacts on families and women's reproductive health, especially on minority communities here in the UK.

The statistics reveal a trend: concerning the minority community, women experience poorer birth outcomes compared to the general population, irrespective of socioeconomic status and IQ, with rising cases of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Postnatal Depression (PTSD, PND) among childbearing women and now men from all backgrounds.

Have you considered the impact on your family unit should birth trauma or the listed above circumstances occur? We understand the long-term impact; therefore, providing a space for preparation and a focused mindset for pregnancy, birth, and beyond results in well-being solutions.

At Conscious Mothers' core, we recognise that birthing is a unique universal experience. Not all women start their mothering journey simultaneously, and our mission is to remain focused on improving perinatal and maternal outcomes for families.

As we confront the persisting challenges in maternal healthcare, reports like the MBRRACE 2020 and 2023 and Parliamentary advice from 2021 underscore the urgent need for improvement.

Drawing on evidence from Cochrane, which suggests that outsourcing a doula presence can reduce risks and improve birth outcomes by up to 24%, we are committed to implementing effective strategies to support your well-being.

How We Support You

At Conscious Mothers, we believe that all women and families matter. Here's how and why we empower you throughout your journey:

Through personalised guidance, we empower you to make informed decisions about your health and well-being.

  4. Advocacy and Education: We review maternal guidelines and policies to safeguard your birth choices. Providing comprehensive information enables families to make informed decisions that align with their values and preferences.

  6. Preparation and Education: We facilitate antenatal and postnatal classes to prepare you and your birthing partner for the journey ahead. By fostering a supportive community and providing essential resources, we empower you to navigate childbirth confidently.

At Conscious Mothers, we don't want any woman to walk with the regret that that they left their birth story to chance and not choice. We remain committed to empowering families and improving perinatal and maternal outcomes for all. Your well-being is our priority, and we are here to support you every step of the way. Together, we help our pregnant community create a brighter and healthier future for you, mothers-to-be, and the families that come after you.
