I’m Melody Robinson,
All Things Birth & Beyond
What We Do & Why…
I strongly believe that every woman should have the information, and be supported in their decisions, to experience birth and motherhood in a way that they choose. I hope to support women, and advocate their individual decisions on what they feel is best for them, and their families, based on their personal circumstances and the information available.
My dream for All Things Birth & Beyond is to provide a safe & trusted organisation for parents to access any service that they could possibly want or need in preparing for and welcoming their baby into the world. Having a baby is about so much more than just Labour & Birth, & there are many moments along the journey where support can make all the difference. Our services are designed to provide exactly that kind of tailored support, from engaging in empowered online programmes to hiring a Doula, establishing optimal feeding, getting to grips with newborn sleep behaviours, postnatal recovery, & even meal delivery or pamper packages for the 4th trimester when self-care & healing is vitally important but perhaps a little challenging to achieve with the responsibilities of caring for a newborn. Postnatal support, especially if your birth has not gone to plan, can also make all this difference in your emotional & mental recovery. We offer a bespoke Birth Trauma service that takes into account your unique experience & supports you in your wellbeing journey.
We know, based on current evidence (February 2021), that 43% of women met the criteria for clinically relevant perinatal depression & 61% of women met the criteria for perinatal anxiety. We also know that over a third of the women who met the criteria did not report having a current clinical diagnosis. Disruptions to care and support have highlighted the maternal mental health crisis that requires urgent attention, not least because of the negative impact this has on infant mental health & family wellbeing.
Whatever is coming up for you, All Things Birth & Beyond can help. We have an amazing team of specialists at the ready & hold our person-centred approach at the heart of all we do. Go to our About page to Meet the Team or drop us a message via the Contact Me page for any queries you may have.
When a woman feels empowered in her birth experience, and has continuity of care during her transition to motherhood, this has a positive impact on her health and well-being – as well as on her relationship with her baby.
Remember… Informed + Supported = Empowered
Birth & Postnatal Practitioner
I have spent the last 2 decades of my life supporting parents as they transition into their new roles as nurturers & carers. It’s a role I am passionate about & absolutely committed to as my life’s purpose.
I help pregnant women and mothers transition through their new, and ever changing roles, so that they feel fully supported and empowered in their monumental transformation that is motherhood.
