Each class can be taken as a stand alone class, or in combination with other classes being offered, and are suitable for both you and your birth partner to attend.
*Class sizes are limited so booking is essential*
Book one class for £15, a double (or two) classes for £25 or four for £40
Empowered birth: This is a double class, running over two sessions. In these classes, we’ll discuss the different stages of labour and options that are available to you for example, place of birth, pain relief, and how they can affect your birth. This class also offers a practical component with a chance to practice many of the different techniques and positions which can be used to facilitate an easier birth.
Cost: £25 (for both sessions)
Preparing for Parenting: We often forget that at the end of a long birth process we get handed a baby that we have to look after! The first three months are sometimes referred to as the Fourth Trimester, a time of adjustment for you and your baby. Most parents look back and wish they’d had some preparation for the realities of looking after a baby. This session looks at normal newborn behaviour, bonding with your baby, safety considerations and practical suggestions designed to make those first few exhausting, but wonderful, weeks with a newborn a little bit easier.
Successful breastfeeding: This session looks at the realities of breastfeeding, how to initiate it successfully, how to know it’s “working” and how to identify problems which require specialist help and sources of support.
And for mums who have had a baby before…
Birth Take Two: This session is designed specifically for parents who have had a baby before, who perhaps want to be better prepared or to do things differently the next time around.
Breastfeeding Take Two: For a variety of reasons many women stop breastfeeding before they were ready to. This session is specifically aimed at women having their second, third or fourth baby, and who want to meet their breastfeeding goals this time around.
Please note I’m currently on maternity leave and not running any classes at the minute. If you are interested in a class, I may run some after Easter 2018, depending on availability and interest. Please contact me for further information or to book a class.
