Classes

Thank you for your interest in the Childbirth classes I offer.

I BELIEVE there is more than one way to give birth. You need to SEEK your own answers and DISCOVER your own truths.  I have designed my course to help you BEGIN your unique journey into parenthood.

I am offering an 8 module course which will take place over a 6 week period.

A little more about the course…

Building Birth Confidence – From “I think I can” to “I know I can” (8 Modules)

Module 1 – Late PregnancyWe are almost there, time to figure this all out!

Module 2 – Pain Yikes, how painful is it?

Module 3 – BirthGeesh, can I do this?

Module 4 – Interventions, CesareanHuh? But what if?

Module 5 – PostpartumOk, will we ever sleep?

Module 6 – Moms onlyShh, best kept secret.

Module 7 – Dads onlyCome, let’s discuss your real concerns.

Module 8 – Feeding –  Breast? Bottle? How do I keep my baby thriving?

Class Reunion (+/- 6 weeks after birth) – I’m surviving, how are you doing?

The above modules includes topics such as: informed decision making, stages of labour, coping techniques, epidural, skin to skin, caesarean birth, birth plans, baby bath, labour bags, breastfeeding and sleeping. Each week I will also spiral in relaxation and breathing techniques.

I am an ICEA (International Childbirth Education Association) Certified Childbirth Educator and Wombs Doula with 17 years experience supporting birthing couples. I have 3 children and have had a Cesarean and natural birth (VBAC). It will be a pleasure for me to answer all your questions and share my knowledge and experience with you.

Classes will be held in Somerset West from 6pm until 8/8.30 pm.

Classes are informal and group discussion is encouraged. Come dressed comfortably and bring along pillows or whatever you need to keep you comfy.
