BIRTH PREPARATION CLASSES IN NTH FITZROY

Childbirth Education that will leave you empowered, informed & ready to give birth to your baby. 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.

Dates & Enrolment

All my classes are at Fitzroy High School, North Fitzroy. I run 10-13 series/workshops per year – so if you don’t see future dates listed here it just means they have yet to be confirmed. You are welcome to email me to enquire about dates.

To enrol in a whole series, click on the appropriate ‘Book Here’ button to the right of the series. This will enrol you in ALL sessions for that series. Only select individual classes if you are not enrolling in a whole series. Some sessions will be blocked from booking individual classes. If you still want to book one of these keep an eye on this page as I will open them up to bookings if the series is not full. You can also split your booking between 2 different series if you can’t make all the dates in one series. Please email me if you would like to do this. You will be sent a booking confirmation once your payment has been processed.

Refund Policy

Due to the high demand of these classes I am unable to give refunds for classes missed due to change of mind, illness, other engagements or forgot to attend. If numbers permit class may be transferred to the following series. Refund will be given for early births and will incur a 10% admin fee. Full refund will be given for miscarriage.

Everyone is welcome at my classes.
