Our birth preparation classes help you to gain a deeper understanding of your anatomy, the physiology of birth and how to stay connected to your baby during the whole process.
Your partner’s role will be enhanced as he is taught cues, support techniques and a deep understanding of the stages of labour.
Different positions for labour and birth as well as relaxation techniques are taught.
Understand hospital policies and procedures, what to expect at a home birth, the pros and cons of medical intervention, what induction, c-sections, assisted deliveries and postpartum care look like.
This class also includes a full breastfeeding class as well as a postpartum visit (primarily focused on breastfeeding support).
We ask that participants bring their lunches with them & we will work through lunch.
This class is ideally taken between the 24th and the 30th week of pregnancy.
