Birth Preparation Session Across North London

9 Steps to a positive birth experience.

Know The Birth You Can Have And

What Contributes To A Positive Birth Experience

In my 10 years experience working with expectant parents, I often heard couples saying things like ‘why no one tells you these things before’ or ‘no one of my NCT friends had the birth they wanted’ or ‘ I wish I had known this before’.

I have created this online birth preparation course to answer the need of expectant couples. The need to know what birth they are entitled to have. This online birth preparation course will empower mums-and-dads -to-be,  to have a positive experience. You will learn the elements that contribute to this being so, you will know how to liaise with your health care provider in any birth scenario.

Yes, you read it right, you can have a positive birth experience in any birth scenario!

Classic birth preparation courses are great, however, they miss to inform on how to positively deal with the unexpected and how to effectively liaise with your health care provider.

This course is for you if you want to know on ALL YOUR OPTIONS, it’s for you if you want to MAKE INFORMED CHOICES if you want to know what contributes to a positive birth experience and how you can make that happen in any birth scenarios. At the end of this 9 video-modules course, you will be empowered to embrace your birth your way, feeling confident with the support around you with it. From birth partners to your health care provider.

This course is for mums-to-be as well as dads-to-be. It’s for the labouring woman and for their birth partners. You can do it together or individually. It will speak to you whether you are the mum or the partner.

If you are the partner after taking this online birth preparation course you will know exactly how you can advocate for the labouring woman and when. You will know how to liaise with the hospital and feel confident in your role and where you stand throughout the process. 

Whether you are the mother, the partner, the father or the birth companion, you will all feel more confident and safe in knowing the elements that contribute to a positive birth experience in any birth scenario and how to fully embrace the birth you want and give yourself the best chance to it to happen. You will feel more confident to embrace your birth preferences because you know exactly ‘your why’! And you created the support needed with your health care provider for this to happen. 

You will also know, and this is never covered in other birth preparation classes, what you can do to stay in control and have a positive birth experience should things not go ‘according to plan’.
