Education

Education is the key.

Our advice to you and your partner or support is to get as much information about the different education options in your area before you decide what might suit you best. There are several options available, and many women say that their wonderful birthing experiences were as a result of tips they learned in their childbirth education and parenting information course. The important thing is for you to research what is available so you can choose the options in birth that best fits with your personal beliefs and desires.

At My Midwives we offer different options across our branches. We make our classes available to you even if you don’t have midwifery care with us. Speak to your local branch about what they offer. We can also tailor a class to meet your particular needs.

My Midwives offers traditional courses covering preparation for birth, labour, options for pain relief, water birth, emergency situations, the first few hours once your baby is born and going home from hospital.  Mostly these classes are held in a small group environment of up to five couples and offer you the chance to learn, workshop and practice all the important aspects of labour, birth and parenting. We keep it simple, very interactive and a lot of fun (even for the men!)

One purpose of My Midwives education is to bring pregnant women and new mothers together to enable you to develop practical strategies, which you can apply in various situations. Developing relationships and friendships with your peers provide support and reassurance during a beautiful yet sometimes daunting time.  Talk to your midwife about any questions you may have about the course. Please contact us to book your place.

Please note some branches do not offer antenatal classes as a service.  Please contact your local branch and they will point you in the right direction.
