ANTENATAL CLASSES

Our midwife run antenatal classes cover everything you need to feel reassured, informed and confident about giving birth however your baby enters the world.

Imagine having nine hours with your very own midwife to have all your questions answered! Having delivered hundreds of babies between us, we're able to personalise the style of your antenatal class to suit you. 

 

Our antenatal classes cover:

  • Preparing your body for birth

  • How to encourage your baby into a optimum position for birth

  • Alternative therapies 

  • Where to have your baby

  • Natural vs medical induction of labour

  • The hormones of birth

  • Signs of labour

  • Breathing techniques

  • Birth positions and massage techniques

  • Creating a calm environment for birth

  • Pain relief options for birth

  • What if things don't go the way I had hoped?

  • The partner's role for birth

  • The fourth trimester - feeding your baby and what to expect for yourself, your partner and your baby in those first few weeks after the birth. 

 

You'll also receive:

  • Continued personal support from midwife Hannah (Surrey) and midwife Rachel (Sussex) until a few weeks after the baby is born.

  • Regular emails with useful tips and positive births to watch

  • A postnatal home visit (private classes only) and organised postnatal meet ups with other parents

 

These classes take place over 9 hours in 3 x 2 hour sessions plus 1 x 3 hour session.
