Education

Education - the key to choice, confidence and control

At My Midwives we believe that different choices are the key to feeling confident and in control of your birthing journey. Some women and their support team want the basic information and some want to take a deeper dive for full understanding of the process. We have developed an extensive suite of classes, workshops and online resources to enable you to work to your strengths getting information in the method that best suits you. Women having their first baby make use of each class - moving from the online resources in the Pregnancy Road Map, through Birth Prep, to our Antenatal Class, Newborn Care, Breastfeeding Class and finally Support, Sleep and Settling after baby is born. Information in birth is power. We offer all our class attendees access to digital resources, which include many lists, plans and ideas pages, and the ability to ask our midwives questions via our client FB pages.
