You may find that during your pregnancy there has been a wealth of information out there to support you through your antenatal journey but perhaps feel a little underprepared about what happens once you’ve given birth and become a new parent.
Becoming a parent for the first or third time can bring its own unique challenges and it’s something that is often given less focus and time in face to face antenatal courses.
With this in mind we felt a real need from the women we spoke to in guiding them through this life-changing experience during the prenatal and postnatal stages and feel we have created the perfect postnatal classes for new parents.
At The Birth Collective, between us we have over 25 years of experience working within maternity and as parents ourselves, we know that sometimes going home with your brand new baby can be a daunting experience.
With a diverse team made up of Doctors, Midwives and Lactation Consultants we want to arm you with all the information you need, so you feel prepared and have a resource you can return to time and time again.
Our postnatal course is fully comprehensive and covers the practicalities of caring for your baby, from safe sleeping to what to expect from your baby and your body in the weeks following birth.
We address often overlooked topics like postnatal depression and have detailed modules on breastfeeding from an IBCLC qualified lactation consultant, if you run in to difficulties with your feeding journey.
Our postnatal classes are delivered through videos and comprehensive downloadable pdf’s, making them extremely accessible and user friendly. This course can be completed in your own time and is the reference point you need at every stage of your postnatal journey.
