Birth Preparation Courses
Labor and delivery can unfold in many different ways, and information is key to help you confidently
Labor and delivery can unfold in many different ways, and information is key to help you confidently manoeuvre the birth of your baby, The goal of these fully personalised childbirth education sessions is to help you make informed choices when the time comes by covering topics related to labour, birth and postpartum. Some examples of what we will cover together in these classes:
• Learn things about labor, delivery and postpartum . You will find out how to identify the signs of labor and what happens to your body as your baby makes his or her way into the world.
• Address your fears. During these childbirth sessions , we will have the chance to talk about your fears that you wish to address. I can help dispel myths and help put your mind at ease by providing evidence based information and resources.
• Prepare with your partner. Childbirth classes offer your partner the chance to understand childbirth, too — as well as learn how to support you during labor.
• Discuss options for coping with pain. We can practice methods such as comfort measures, breathing techniques, relaxation and visualization for coping with contractions. We will also cover the benefits and risks of pain medications, such as epidurals.
• Understand the basics on medical interventions and possible complications. Find out how routine interventions can influence the course of labor and discuss the benefits and risks of the interventions you might be presented with during labor.
Which topics we explore the most is entirely up to you, depending on the choices you have already made for your birth plan, the fears you would like to address or anything you feel most drawn to.
Shorter sessions help me prepare and tailor the next session according to your needs so I can cover the topics that either interest you the most, or that you feel you need more information, resources or preparation.
You can book this session as a stand-alone or book several sessions. Feel free to contact me prior to booking to discuss your needs and wishes, I look forward to hearing from you!
