A dynamic antenatal, childbirth and parenthood education class specifically designed for mums-to-be/couples/birth partners, to prepare for a positive birth experience and to provide the skills and confidence for the challenges of parenthood. Class numbers are limited to maximum of 3-6 mums/couples (depending on venue) to allow for individual needs and a friendly, informal & ‘safe-feeling’ environment. A variety of teaching styles will be used including group work, demonstrations, activities and talks. Our aim is to develop new knowledge & skills in the most effective, comfortable and beneficial way.
The courses will offer a wealth of information, giving opportunity to develop realistic coping strategies and techniques for all types of labour, including ‘active birth’ and ‘when things don’t go according to plan’. Parents have chance to gain hands-on experience with practical skills such as baby bathing and nappy changing, and dads even get chance to wear our pregnancy empathy belly! In addition, an introduction to Hypnobirthing techniques will be included.
