What happens if I have to be induced?

  • We are fully aware that some inductions can induce labour immediately and some can take a bit longer. In this case we ask that you keep your placenta specialist up to date so we can monitor the timings for the placenta chiller pack & discuss arrangements if need be. Everything else stays the same  

The Placenta Chiller Pack

  • Your placenta chiller pack is what will keep your placenta stored safely and correctly. Labour can be very unpredictable and anything can occur throughout any stage of labour prolonging the freshness of the gel ice packs. Here are some helpful tips that we suggest to clients
                 

              "Although we offer guidance and reassurance - we will support any issue that can not be resolved"

  • Ask your midwife if they could store your x4 ice packs in their freezer, most midwives are happy to support a mother's wishes and will do so if they have a freezer on the delivery department


  • Birth Partners are often told to go home to get some rest if their partner are not in established labour, if this is the case ask your birth partner to take the chiller pack home with them and to refreeze the ice packs ready for the next morning
