CHILDBIRTH PREPARATION CLASSES

 

Childbirth preparation classes are midwife-led sessions/workshops which follows a thoughtfully curated antenatal syllabus “Transition to Parenthood” written by Tolu the Midwife. 


The course covers a wide range of topics within antenatal, labour, delivery and postnatal periods. The group sessions are held in a relaxed and comfortable environment while the private one-to-one sessions are usually held in your home or a place of your choice with one birthing partner.

We often get so wrapped up with the pregnant women, men are unconsciously side-lined. The fact is you are having a baby too! and we need you here every step of the way. 


The benefits of the "Father Effect" is not spoken about enough. Many studies highlight the benefits of "fathering" include bonding with your baby, (even in utero) and contributing to your child's psychological and social outcome in a positive way. 

Men are usually sidelined or excluded from the transition to parenthood. This can affect the way he supports his partner and bonds with their baby. The reality of the matter is, Parenting requires teamwork and need to encourage men to be involved at every stage right from conception.
