Group Antenatal Courses

These courses are 6 classes long and are run over 6-weeks, unless otherwise noted.

The aim of these classes is to generate discussions as a couple or 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.

This class is for everyone, not just new parents.  Maybe you had some challenges with breastfeeding a previous baby and just want to gain some confidence and be better supported to breastfeed a new baby. All women and their husbands/partners/support people are encouraged to learn about what to expect when breastfeeding.

You will be joining an antenatal course group for one night (the breastfeeding night) to learn the same content that is delivered in their class.     

Topics include:

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