Birth Preparation Course

These classes consist of 3 sessions - each session lasting approximately 1,5 - 2 hours. Dates will be picked by you so it suits your schedule. All this thorough information you will receive in the comfort of your own home. They are suitable for individuals or couples and I strongly recommend that birthing partners attend.

The topics I cover are:

 

  • The beginning of labour
  • Its stages and the importance of understanding each stage
  • What can you do during labour
  • When is the time to go to hospital
  • My maternity bag
  • Pain relief during labour - at home and in the hospital
  • The normal delivery
  • When things go pear shape - induction, assisted delivery etc.
  • Monitoring your baby during labour
  • Feeding your baby
  • What happens next - demonstrations including baby bathing, changing nappies, positioning, dressing & undressing, room temperatures and correct bedding choices
  • Cesarean section
  • What to expect when going home
