BIRTH PREPARATION CLASSES IN NTH FITZROY, MELBOURNE AND LIVE STREAMED VIA ZOOM.
One blustery night in 1998 I birthed my first baby – I’d been pushed to my absolute limits while at the same time experienced the most uplifting and joyous moment in my entire life. My partner was blown away by my power and the birth of each of our 3 girls deepened our respect and love for each other.
Childbirth has the potential to transform peoples lives, it’s a life changing experience. Being informed and making the right decisions can greatly influence the outcome of birth.
Do you want to have a positive experience? Do you hope to have a natural birth, if possible?…..You have come to the right place!
These classes take you through labour, birth & breastfeeding; informing you, preparing you & empowering you, with practical skills so that you can step into your birth feeling trusting & confident in your body. Learn about your baby & the process of birth, how you can influence the progress of labour & how your support person or partner can best support you. Feel confident to stay at home until you are ready to go to hospital if that is where you plan to give birth. Feel confident to work with your contractions rather than resisting them. Feel confident to open your body, let go & give birth with all your instinctive power. Then feel confident to hold your baby & feed them just as you imagined & dreamed of.
