Antenatal Classes

The thought of being new parents can be scary. There are many uncertainties and a huge number of choices to be made. By joining a group of other new parents-to-be you can enjoy the social activity as well as learning about birth and beyond. Many groups choose to make Facebook or WhatsApp groups to provide themselves with continued support and new friendships for after the babies are born.
Next Course starts Saturday 28th September 2019 2:30-4:30pm

 

I am DBS checked, Insured and hold a paediatric first aid certificate. I have been teaching antenatal preparation classes for more than 20 years as a Midwife and I have attended seminars and conferences about antenatal preparation, waterbirth and natural labour.

Subjects covered include:

  • Preparing for the birth - what to pack for hospital and preparation at home
  • The early stages of labour, what you can do at home and when to ring the hospital
  • Consideration of Induction of Labour
  • The three stages of labour
  • Pain relief
  • Waterbirth
  • Homebirth
  • Birth partners role
  • Positions for labour
  • What to expect whilst in hospital
  • The early days at home including bathing and nappy changing, eye care and cord care
  • Sudden infant death prevention
  • Feeding options
  • Things you can do to help baby's development.

 

Broadly the sessions are divided into:

Class 1 - Labour and pain relief

Class 2 - Baby care and development

Class 3 - Feeding

 

WHERE AND WHEN

The course is divided into three x 2 hour sessions - held on three consecutive weeks.

To make it easier for birth partners to attend, sessions are provided in the evening and at weekends.

Classes start from around 28-30 weeks gestation so that you still have the information fresh in your mind when labour starts.

There is a minimum of three couples and a maximum of ten couples per class so they are great for developing a social networks whilst keeping the class intimate.

Classes are held Welland School of Dancing, Broad Street, Stamford

 

Next Course starts Saturday 28th September 2019 2:30-4:30pm

 

COST

The classes are competitively priced.

 

For the three 2 hour sessions including some written information to take away

£125 per couple.

 

If you have had a baby before and just wish a refresher on labour or feeding I can provide each of the classes as an individual session at £60
