Zoё Frances Kent


 

Zoe frances kent born at medi-clinic on the 28th september 2010.

Julie had a visit with her gynaecologist in the morning of the 28th Sept and gave me a call to say that she was going straight into hospital as he was not happy with the baby s weight.  Julie tried natural labour but the baby s heart rate was up and down and the midwife gave her a few hours and then called the gynaecologist and a decision was made to do a c-section as soon as possible.  Zoe was born at 16h00 and she was in perfect health. Her weight was 2.4kg. Head circum 33 and length was 49 cm.  She came straight into the ward and I did skin on skin with her and so did her dad and she stayed with us until Julie came out of the theatre.  She was breast feed by Julie within an hour.  Zoe is a very easy baby and has done really well with her breast feeding.  Julie has fed her for 6 months.  She has the nicest nature. Zoe has an older brother who had a natural birth so Julie was able to experience both a natural and c section birth.

Zoe at a year.

What I Do

I am living my dream while working with mums and babies. I see mums when they are 34 weeks pregnant and then go to their homes once they go into labour. I stay for the full duration of the labour and after the birth I assist them with breast feeding. I do another visit after the birth to see that all is well and to help where I can.  Mums are always welcome to call me in the event that they have any questions, whether before or after the birth. I am passionate about my work as a doula and I care and love all the families with which I work. Once you have been present at a birth you feel part of the family and it’s wonderful to hear news of the new baby’s life as he or she grows.
