Antenatal Course practical baby care

This 12hr,  in-person course has been created especially for those birthing in the Scottish Central Belt and is based around my extensive knowledge and experience working as an antenatal educator and hypnobirthing instructor since 2007. (learn  more about me)

Have you heard the phrase 'you don't know what you don't know'? Having worked with 100s of couples, I have  devised a course which parents find extremely worthwhile, informative and fun. I also make sure the information you receive is evidence based, up-to-date and tailored to your local area. 

 

Learn all the skills you need to have a calm and positive birth experience as well as how to master some baby-care tips and ways to cope during those first few weeks as a parent.

Check out the full course content further down. 

The course environment is very relaxed with plenty of time for you and your partner to ask any questions    (nothing is too crazy)  and for you to meet other local parents. 

 

Refreshments are provided and you are encouraged to make yourself as comfortable as possible. I believe people learn better if they have ready access to tea and cake!

 

Come join me and  gain the knowledge you need to make informed decisions that feel right for you and your baby.  Places are limited to 8 couples per course so you can be guaranteed to receive personal support both during our time together and beyond.
