You will get to meet other local expectant parents which can be great for when your babies arrive too. Jess is passionate to nurture and support you to prepare for your birth.
The course ideally is for women from around 22 weeks pregnant, but it’s never too late to start! The course provides you with:
- the knowledge, tools and techniques to give you confidence to have a positive birth experience through a range of techniques which you can pick and chose to suit you, no matter where you give birth, home, hospital or theatre.
- the confidence to trust the physiology of birth and how to let go to allow your body to work as it is made to
- techniques to get your mind in good shape for birth and why its so important.
You will learn relaxation techniques, breathing, massage, positioning for birth, comfort measures, tools and tips for preparation and the birth itself. You will also learn how and why you should make a birth plan.
Birth is an incredible life affirming experience and should be empowering and amazing.
