CHILDBIRTH PREPARATION CLASSES

Tolu the Midwife Healthcare Solutions offers a variety of classes through the Maternity hub to help expecting parents learn more about pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. 

 

Our childbirth preparation classes are midwife-led sessions that follow a thoughtfully curated antenatal syllabus “Transition to Parenthood” created by our lead midwife, Tolu. They are a great way to prepare for the arrival of your baby as they reduce stress and anxiety and help you feel more empowered and excited going into your birth experience.

 

The courses cover a wide range of topics within antenatal, labour, delivery, and postnatal periods. Our antenatal classes are online. However, we offer group sessions for corporate organizations 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.

 

Overall, our classes increase the chances of couples having a positive birth experience.

DADS ANTENATAL CLASS

We often get so wrapped up with 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" are not spoken about enough. Many studies highlight the benefits of "fathering" including bonding with your baby, (even in utero) and contributing to your child's psychological and social outcome positively.

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 there's a need to encourage men to be involved at every stage right from conception. 

At the Maternity Hub, we have created a class just for soon-to-be first-time fathers. In the classes, the dads-to-be learn about things like supporting your partner in birth and being a new dad. The classes are very relaxed and you get to laugh while you learn. Many men are relieved to find out that other men share the same thoughts and worries and this can be very comforting to a dad-to-be.
