Description

Your course booking is for two people, so you can bring your birth partner, a friend, or family member. Each course is limited to 10 expectant parents and their plus ones, so you'll have the opportunity to meet other like-minded parents and connect with people who are going through the same experiences as you.

With our 2-day weekend course, each day will cover 3 sessions. Here's a brief overview of what we'll cover:
 
Day one:

1. Health & Wellbeing

How to stay healthy during pregnancy, the signs and symptoms of pregnancy complications, and how to manage them. We'll also discuss diet/nutrition, rest and exercise, movement and mobility, and how to understand and manage unexpected signs and symptoms.

2. Planning for Birth

Choosing where to give birth, understanding the different stages of labour, and making informed decisions about your care. We'll also discuss induction and elective c-section, the role of the birth partner, and how to cope with unexpected changes to your birth plan.

3. Giving Birth

What to expect during labour and delivery, pain relief options, and how you and your baby work together (cardinal movements). We'll also discuss movement and mobility during labour, choices during childbirth; e.g. water birth, hypnobirthing, epidural.

Day two:

4. Preparing for First 72 Hours

How to care for your baby in the first few days after birth, the importance of skin-to-skin contact, and how to get your baby to latch. We'll also discuss the health checks your baby will receive at birth, optimal cord clamping, and stem cell banking.

5. Infant Feeding

Choice. Breast, bottle, or both. The physiology of breastfeeding, positioning, expressing. Safe formula feeding. We'll also discuss how to manage feeds with the help of your postnatal plan template.

6. Postnatal Care & Wellbeing

How to recover from childbirth, how to manage common postpartum issues, and adjusting to life with a newborn. We'll also discuss when support may be needed, and how to get the most out of your postnatal plan template. Q&A for dads and partners only, and then a final group Q&A.
