My video series & disclaimer

8. I have created a short video series for new and expectant mothers and fathers based on my skills, knowledge, training and experience in the field of pre- and post-natal care.

9. These videos are for informational and educational purposes for pregnant women and mothers only. These videos do not provide medical advice and do not replace medical advice.

10. The techniques and advice in these videos is of a general nature and although they work for most women, each may have different experiences and needs. I urge you to seek immediate medical advice, should you struggle with any of the techniques in my videos. I am also available for 1-2-1 consultations (via phone or skype if you are not local) for an additional fee, should you be struggling.

10.1 For many women, it is safe to hand express colostrum during pregnancy from 37 weeks (term) onwards. You must speak with your health care provider to receive clearance for yourself to do this from your 37 week mark.

10.2 For many women, a physiological third stage is safe. You must speak with your health care provider to determine if this is safe for you.

10.3 There may be some medical risks with a physiological third stage, depending on your individual situation, and it is your responsibility to seek medical advice before undertaking the above.

11. Users should always consult with a qualified and licensed physician or other medical care provider. Users are warned to follow the advice of their physicians without delay regardless of anything seen or read in these videos. I assume no duty to correct or update the Content nor to resolve or clarify any inconsistent information in the videos. Reliance on the videos is solely at the User's risk. My videos may contain health or medically related materials considered sexually explicit to some. Users are warned that if they may be offended by such Content, an alternate source of information should be found. Publication of information or reference in these videos to specific sources such as specific products, procedures, physicians, treatments, or diagnoses are for information only and are not endorsements by me.

12. Please immediately phone the emergency services in your country if:

12.1. Your baby is struggling to breathe

12.2. Your baby is non-responsive (you cannot wake him / her)

12.3 You suffer unexpectedly heavy or prolonged bleeding after birth which gets worse or does not slow

12.4 You go into premature labour

12.5 Your baby is not gaining the expected amount of weight for their age

12.6 Your baby has jaundice or any kind of medical condition

12.7 This list is not exhaustive and there may be other indicators which raise cause for medical concern. If you are in any doubt, phone emergency services immediately as they can advise if it may be a true emergency and what steps you need to take in the circumstances.
