Birth Affinity Midwife Led Birth Preparation Courses
In addition to Natal Hypnotherapy workshops, Birth Affinity are more than able to provide preparation for any area of pregnancy and birth that you wish to learn more about - from hospital birth to breastfeeding and more! See below for some examples, or contact us with your specific requirements.
We also appreciate how you want to know what is relevant to YOU! Why spend your precious time before the birth in classes that have little relevance to your situation? This is why we individually tailor our courses to your specific requirements.
A chance to explore and gain a greater insight into the physiology of birth and birth mechanics. The course can include
what to pack in a labour bag,
what to expect when labour starts,
self help methods for managing labour,
when to call the hospital,
what pain relief might be available, its benefits and disadvantages
ways of managing the birth of the placenta,
induction of labour and how to avoid it,
what happens with labours that are unduly slow
what happens if you need help to birth your baby including caesarian sections,
optimal fetal positioning,
positions for labour and birth, why they can help and how to adapt them in situations where increased monitoring or intervention becomes necessary,
pelvic floor exercises,
what happens when you go home,
minor complaints in a newborn's life, such as sticky eyes, and how to manage them.
Includes assistance to write your own birth plan.
With a firm focus on the normality of childbirth, we explore labour and birth at home, with topics that can include
self help methods,
- optimal fetal positioning,
- positions that help labour and birth - and why they help,
- options for birthing the placenta, including lotus births
- pelvic floor exercises and why they are important,
- minor complaints in a newborn's life, such as sticky eyes, and how to manage them.
We also like to provoke discussion around what constitutes a "normal" birth and what intervention is or isn't, so that we can really focus in on what you want to acheive from your birth experience. Includes assistance to write your own birth plan.
Includes an explanation of breast physiology, how breastfeeding works and correct positioning and attachment. Common breastfeeding problems, such as sore nipples, their causes, prevention and treatment are also included as part of this in-depth preparation for successful breastfeeding.
If you require information and support with any other aspect of pregnancy and birth not mentioned here, please contact us and we will be happy to help you!
