With lots of experience in the birthing room and talking to expectant parents this course aims to cover 'everything you need to know' and some extra things you didn't know you needed to know! Taught over 4 weeks of evenings, in a comfy setting within a small group (who you will hopefully come to call friends). (Suitable from 30 weeks) This course is for the birthing mother and partner(s)
Your sessions will cover: The last days of pregnancy and early hours of labour The labour process-what to expect, how you might feel, where you might be. The Birth environment-the pros and cons of different spaces and how to make it yours Practical birthing tips and the role of the birth partner Natural and medical forms of pain relief and your options surrounding them Possible interventions and your choices Keep calm and breathe... Birth planning Bag-packing Feeding Bonding with your baby and becoming a family And more...
All birth preferences are supported and we always work from an evidence-based viewpoint of birth. The door and in-box are always open for the duration of your course. If something has been missed, or you'd like more details there is always the opportunity. We hope you leave the course feeling confident and with tools to help you rock your birth experience. And if you miss us when you are finished you can join our FREE positive birth meetings for more birthy chats and peer support.
