Pregnancy

Lots of parents journey through pregnancy feeling fearful of birth.  We hear stories and watch TV shows & Movies that portray birth as being a medical emergency.  It's time to change the narrative and get informed.  By the end of my course you will feel calm, prepared and excited for your birth!

Birth

However and wherever you wish to birth your baby, on my course you will receive all the information needed, including practical & emotional support, to make informed decision and achieve the positive birth you want.

Postpartum

Not a lot is known about the postpartum period - we tend to spend our time & energy thinking about pregnancy and labour, that we forget about learning how to take care of ourselves once baby has arrived.  Upon finishing my course you will have the knowledge to create your perfect postpartum period and feel empowered to ensure this precious time is spent how you want to spend it.  

What to expect

 

This is the ultimate antenatal course!  My course is split over 4 weeks and is held in the comfort of your home - older siblings and pets are very welcome to join us. 

 

The course will give you all the tools needed to change your mindset and arrive at your birth feeling positive and confident.  We will cover the physiology of birth and how best to support & promote the amazing birth hormones to allow labour to unfold naturally.  Your birth partner will feel fully equipped to support you, and you will both be empowered to explore all of your options and make fully informed decision.  We will spend almost an entire session on your birth rights - this is more important than ever. Birth has become over medicalised with unnecessary inductions & caesareans left, right and centre. When you sign up to my course you will have my full support between lessons (and once to the course has finished), to help you navigate your care and autonomy over your body.
