Classes

Online Antenatal Classes 

These are now available over 4 weeks and will cover:

  • Labour & birth
  • Pain relief & assisted births
  • Breastfeeding (your own teddy bear will be useful) 
  • Baby Wrangling 101 and postnatal wellness

Group Antenatal Classes

With the current situation, these may turn into online classes, but if not, they are 6 sessions long and are run over 6 weeks, unless otherwise noted.

There will be plenty of information explored and provided, and all questions are encouraged.  The aim of these classes is to generate discussions as a family and to continue them with your LMC to explore the options that will work for your own unique situation.  

One whole night is dedicated to breastfeeding, and another whole night to Baby Wrangling, where you will have some hands on practice with my highly qualified stunt babies learning about how to care for your own baby.  There is a good dose of humour thrown in there to help get you through it all, time to get to know your class mates, and most importantly, supper!

Topics include:

  • Late pregnancy
  • Labour and birth
  • Pain relief options
  • Assisted births
  • Breastfeeding
  • Baby Wrangling 101
  • Postnatal wellness
  • Early parenting strategies

Antenatal class dates can be found under bookings.

Also available online if group classes cannot go ahead.

All women and their support people are encourage to learn about what to expect when breastfeeding a baby.  This is the same content as the breastfeeding night in the antenatal classes. 

Topics include:

  • Breast anatomy
  • How breasts make milk
  • The first week and beyond
  • The feed cycle
  • Latching – what does the baby do?
  • Benefits
  • Where to get support
