The course leaders are fully qualified and practising midwives, each with over 10 years of midwifery experience.
We have found that couples are often over-loaded with information or, given a miss-representation of today’s care which only negatively impacts on what should be a special time. The courses consist of four, two hour long, evening classes covering; Normal Labour; Normal Birth; Birth Partners Role; Common Interventions and Essential Postnatal skills. Groups are kept small so you feel comfortable sharing your concerns/anxieties and also to aid strong friendships to grow.
Following the course we will encourage your class to meet again with your little ones – a great opportunity for you to build on, what will be I’m sure, an essential social network.
The course content can vary slightly according to the needs of the class. However, we will aim to touch on the below topics.
Our unique course aims to be informative yet friendly, helping prepare you for your forthcoming birth and the early days in a welcoming environment.
