Learn What Contributes To A Positive Birth Experience
And How You Can Have A Positive Birth Experience In Any Birth Scenario
With this Antenatal Online Birth Preparation Course
THE POWER OF A BIRTH PLAN IS NOT THE ACTUAL PLAN!
ITS POWER RELIES ON BECOMING EDUCATED ABOUT CHILDBIRTH
DISPELLING THE MYTHS, THE FEARS
KNOWING ALL YOUR OPTION AND FEELING EMPOWERED IN MAKING DECISIONS
THE PROBLEMS EVERYONE FACES
In my 10 years experience working with expectant parents, I too often heard couples saying things like
‘why no one tells you these things before’
‘no one of my NCT friends had the birth they wanted’
‘ I wish I had known this before’
‘ I have been thinking about birth since I found out I was pregnant and I feel a bit anxious’
‘I felt out of control not knowing what to do or what say when doctors pressured me’
‘I am not sure of what I need to do for my partner’
‘I would ideally like as natural birth as possible. I am also pretty realistic I may need some help’
‘I am scared about the birth of my second baby as I had a traumatic experience with my first’
‘I feel lost and overwhelmed in a system where there is not continuity of care and I hear contraddictory advise from different midwives’
WHAT CONTRIBUTE TO THE PROBLEM
There are lots of courses out there that guide you through the process of childbirth and make you feel confident abuot it. You will be prepared for a natural labour and you will know your options on pain relief! And active birth positions. This is great.
However birth preparation courses do not equip you on how you can effectively liaise with your health care provider and you can quickly loose control over your choices if you can’t effectively communicate with your health care provider or don’t fully understand the system and the protocols in place.
‘9 Steps to a positive birth experience – The birth you are entitled to have’ is a antanatal online birth preparation course with a unique approach to birth preparation, covering the gap between your wishes, your expectations and the reality of the system. It will not only teach you the basics from the stages of labor to hormones during labor and how the brain works. You will also learn how to deal with the pressures you will hear and feel around some hospital protocols and how you can liaise with your health care provider, asses risks (ever notices hospitals talk about risks all the time?) and make informed decisions in any birth scenarios.

“Eleonora’s online course “positive birth preparation” has been very helpful for my second pregnancy and birth.
The videos and additional materials are easy, straightforward and truthful! it covers the main aspects of birth and it really helped me to understand how to deal with the hospital and mostly to make informed choices! She was available to answer any other question I had on her FB group, which was amazing!
The breastfeeding module was very helpful, even if it was my second child.
I wish I had this course with my first child!
I highly recommend it.“Online Course Testimonial
‘9 steps to a positive birth experience’ shows you research papers (downloadable) and NICE guidelines that can help you clarify certain aspects of childbirth and make you feel confident about your choices.
It also covers modules on how to risks asses and how to deal with the unexpected.
The birth preferences section is a lot more detailed than any other birth preparation. With actual real examples of birth preferences and how to make yours individual so the health care provider in shift can really connect with it, rather than the standard and impersonal bullets points.
However, what this course does NOT do, is to put you in touch with local mums & dads. And this is very valuable! Specially for the very well important post-natal period.
