Warm and welcoming local in-person antenatal course led by an experienced local Birth & Postnatal Doula.
This is the informative and fun antenatal course you’ve been looking for!
Having knowledge gives you confidence when you make your own choices in birth. During this course you will gain knowledge so that you can leave feeling empowered and confident about the wonderful journey ahead.
This is also a place for mothers/parents to connect with other mothers/parents who are going through a journey at a similar time to yours. This connection can mean a lot during your new parenting journey, often leading to life-long friendships and connections (for mothers/parents and little ones too!)
It was essential for my own birth journey to get a wide range of knowledge about birth and to understand the choices that were available to me. It really empowered me to make each of my own choices from pregnancy and birth to childbearing. Connecting with other parents was also crucial when I went through this life-changing experience.
This is why I want to offer YOU the same opportunities I received.
The aim of this course is to empower you to have a better birth experience.
If you have an empowered birth experience, that experience helps you confidently make your choices after birth too - actually birth is the start of a long journey of constantly making choices as a parent.
Whether you choose home birth, birth with epidural or Caesarean, you can feel empowered by the experience.
