COURSE CONTENT

WEEKEND GROUPS

Our intensive weekend course is a complete antenatal course that leaves couples fully informed and prepared for labour, birth and caring for their new baby. We have frequent breaks during the day, including for food and drinks, giving couples lots of time to ask questions and get to know one another. All food and drinks through the day are covered by the course fee.

 

Saturday

  • Signs and process of labour and birth. Where to give birth: home, birth centre, or hospital?

  • Coping strategies and pain relief - and an introduction to Hypnobirthing and Aromatherapy.

  • When birth doesn't go as planned - birth partners role.

Sunday

  • Couples come back to tell their birth story. Early days with your baby, recovery time, looking after yourself and your baby, and life as new parents.

  • Common practicalities such as swaddling, bathing, nappy changing, and slings.

  • Feeding your baby: Breastfeeding - what to expect, how to do it and common problems. Bottle feeding - with expressed breast milk or formula.
