Birth education in Australia
Approaching your due date can be both exciting and daunting at the same time, especially if it’s your first pregnancy. Not knowing how things are going to happen and what to be prepared for is a common concern when you’re talking about the health and wellbeing of you and your child.
Childbirth classes can help you prepare for the birth, both physically and mentally.
By attending a childbirth class and establishing a birth plan with a midwife or doula you can educate yourself on what will likely happen when you go into labour.
Once you have learned what you should be prepared for during the birth and you have a birth plan, you can stay calm and appreciate your labour rather than fear it.
Why should I attend birthing classes?
For many women, giving birth is a nervewracking concept, but it doesn’t have to be. By attending birthing classes and receiving birth education the birth of your child can be a stress-free and even relaxing experience.
Our birthing classes include Hypnobirthing, CalmBirth, Lamaze, and more. All of our classes focus on celebrating the joys of childbirth and removing the stigma that it will be a negative and scary experience.
Birth education will teach you how to relax your body and embrace the natural and beautiful experience that brings your child into the world.
With techniques such as deep breathing, visualisation, self-hypnosis, and affirmations, you will learn how to react to your body’s cues and trust yourself to do what comes naturally.
The goal is to bring your baby into the world in a positive and calming way. Childbirth classes can help you achieve this, taking the anxiety out of childbirth.
