OUR CLASSES FOR DURING PREGNANCY
Our classes and groups for during your pregnancy are designed to help you make informed choices about how, where, and with whom you give birth, and to help you feel confident about approaching parenthood.
Our information is balanced and unbiased, and we promise to answer your questions openly and honestly. All our facilitators are experts in their field, and include doulas, ex-midwives and those who have completed the Birth Educators' Course.
The homebirth support group is open to everyone who wishes to find out more about homebirth, support those interested in having a homebirth or who wish to tell their homebirth story to support others with the option.
This is a free drop-in group and no booking is required.
Our yoga for pregnancy sessions offer a unique approach to enjoying your pregnancy, preparing for the birth of your baby and for parenthood.
The sessions begin with a relaxing meditation followed by yoga, including postures designed to relieve pregnancy symptoms, and enhance wellbeing and the connection with your baby.
The sessions conclude with facilitated discussion around pregnancy, birth and early parenting topics, guided by the interests of the women in each group.
This workshop looks at how parents-to-be feel when they contemplate feeding their new baby. Building on what they already know about baby feeding, the discussion explores how breastfeeding supports mother-baby connection and provides babies with warmth, food, comfort and protection.
The PPC Dads-To-be course is a midwife-created course for expectant dads with lots of discussion, practical advice and workshop activities. This is an invaluable practical course for men who would like to build their confidence around early parenting skills. From baby care to emotional issues, the sessions will involve open discussion and give plenty of time for questions to be asked.
So many birth partners have told us that they are worried that they won’t know what to do during labour, or how to support their partner. Our Active Birth Workshop aims to show both pregnant women and their birth companions useful and practical techniques that can help with labour and birth.
We recognise how valuable basic first aid knowledge is as a parent and in life generally. Our Baby First Aid session is a non-certificated workshop aiming to give confidence to parents in dealing with common childhood emergencies.
