We are so excited to launch this brand new birth preparation course, designed for expectant couples and given live via Zoom to provide you with everything you need to approach birth in an informed, relaxed and positive way.
This course is approximately 6hrs+ of live class time, either over a weekend or four weekday evenings. It will cover all the basics of birth and so, so much more from psychological prep (and how that impacts your physiology), physical and practical prep and hands on comfort techniques, birth partner support information, pain management and information on evidence based care and how to make informed decisions in labour.
What will we cover?
