Post Due Date Stretch and Sweep Clinic

Post Due Date Stretch and Sweep Clinic

Full check with an experienced midwife


A cervical sweep will help avoid induction in 1: 8 ladies by releasing prostaglandin hormones and helping to soften and ripen the cervix (neck of the womb) for labour.
I will provide a full antenatal check, and listen to baby’s heartbeat, chat about your pregnancy and your birth preferences and offer strategies to keep you relaxed and to keep your oxytocin hormone flowing. I will demonstrate colostrum harvesting to stimulate oxytocin and help prepare your cervix for labour.
I will provide advice on practical tips and mindset preparation for labour, I will demonstrate key acupressure points to help your body to prepare for labour. I will also provide a gentle sweep of the cervix to stimulate hormones which may activate labour. This involves a gentle vaginal examination and assessment of the Bishop score to inform you whether your body has started to gear up for labour or not.

    Linda has been so helpful with my journey, providing a wealth of information and advice. She’s so friendly and I’m so glad she could help us! Linda put me at ease and made me feel so welcome in her home. Her services are amazing and made me feel very supported throughout my journey. Couldn’t be more grateful 😃.

    I was introduced to Linda when i was 40 weeks and the hospital was pressuring me to have an induction due to a dip in baby’s growth. The emotional and physical support that Linda offered me during the run up to going into labour at 40+4 was amazing. Without her my labour story would not have been a positive one. She was there for me whenever i needed her (i.e whenever i had to go into hospital for ctg monitoring, during the latent labour stage and when i had reached established labour).
    Her support helped me during the difficult time of being alone during the covid-19 situation as i felt i didn’t have the right support from the hospital or my local midwife group. I honestly felt so much better knowing I had her support, especially being a FTM and wanting to do the right thing by my baby. Thank you for everything and working with me to have the most amazing birth story. Linda provided excellent communication, emotional support and made me feel calm during the sweeps/examinations. I will definitely look at booking her again for my second child. Thank you once again for everything xx
