Midwife-Led "Online and Interactive"
Preparing Yourself for Labour and Birth
At this stressful time in our lives, many pregnant ladies have been advising me that their various antenatal, NCT and Pre - Birth Classes have been cancelled during this time of isolation. I also said that I would look at providing some "online interactive courses", so here is what I have put together for you all.
I have arranged some dates and times for "Online and Interactive Pre-Birth Classes" using Zoom. These classes will run exactly as I normally run them and you will receive exactly the same information and still be able to ask all of your questions in a group setting apart from we will be all in our own comfy homes, which means more comfortable seating ...... every cloud has a lining!
My Pre- Birth Classes will run over three weeks and each session will be two hours in length.
I will teach you everything you need to know to help you to have the birth of your choice and prepare for your baby.
For many couples these days, this will be your first experience of pregnancy, labour and / or birth. I am here to help guide and support you through what can be a very overwhelming time in your lives.......especially right now. I will give you simple, yet practical advice and information which will enable you to make the right choices for you, your partner and your baby.
