ONE TO ONE ANTENATAL PREP
You may have already done an antenatal course or you may not have done a course but want some bespoke antenatal preparation. If you have questions about your pregnancy/birth or further areas you want to explore, I can help - in your own time and in your own home. I can show you the skills you will need during labour - breathing, massage, birthing positions and relaxation - I can then guide you as you practice them. I can also check your hospital bag, explore how you might use your home environment during the early stages of labour, and make sure you feel prepared for when your baby arrives.
Postnatal care of your baby can be included in any session I provide for you, including a check of products you may have or need.
Workshops are: £20 per mother and £30 for a couple.
1:1 2 hour session in your home: £75
