First pregnancy: tips for good management

Sandrine d’Huart is a psychologist specializing in perinatal life and parenting and offers consultations in Flawinne and Gembloux. She advises expectant parents to first create a birth plan. “In order for this to happen optimally, it is good to think about it in advance: Which maternity ward are you going to choose? Do you want to breastfeed? If not, you’d better rule out “baby-friendly” maternity hospitals in the beginning.” The psychologist also recommends finding out about the frequency of episiotomy, caesarean section or even epidural anesthesia performed by your gynecologist and/or the hospital. This is to avoid disappointment on D-Day.
