Bite-Size Birth

A new style of active antenatal class!

Are you looking for in-depth, physiological birth preparation.  But concerned about attending a full day workshop where your bum goes numb, and your brain can no longer absorb all of the information being offered?  

In my Bite-size birth classes you can attend weekly, hour long, themed topic, comprehensive active birth education sessions taught over a cuppa and biscuits.

Each block of classes lasts 6 weeks. By the end of the course, jam packed with evidence based labour & birth education; you will feel empowered to inform your choices around your vaginal birth.  Able to make informed decisions to help or hinder your birthing progress.  Reduced fear & develop a 'bring it on' attitude to your upcoming big day. 

Classes can be attended as individual drop in sessions or booked as a 6 week course.

Attend alone or with your birth partner.

Antenatal classes. Make Friends. Friendship, Birth Preparation. Mum & Birth Partner Due Date

I have been teaching half/full day active birth workshops as part of my line up of Antenatal classes in Nottinghamshire & Lincolnshire since 2014.  Whilst the feedback that I have recieved has always been excellent.  I couldn't help but notice that after 3+ hours of trying to absorb all of the beneficial information; pregnant people and their partners would start to feel tired, their brains too full to take in any more and their bodies sore from not being able to move around as much as they normally would. 

Science backs the theory that we should only study for an hour at most before we take a break.

So my solution to this is Bite-size Birth antenatal classes!

Pop along weekly for an hour long, bite-size chunk of fun, evidence based, informative and beneficial antenatal education. 

These in-depth birth education classes are taught the informal and relaxed setting of my (smoke & pet free) home in Upper Saxondale (near Bingham & Radcliffe-on-Trent) over some light refreshments.  It feels more like a catch up with friends than a class.

Speaking of friends... all of my antenatal classes are a fantastic place to meet other parents to be, and get to know other people at the same stage of life as you.

Come alone, or with your birth partner!
