Pre Birth Education

When you first discover your are pregnant you will have so many things to think about. Choosing a name, buying clothes, ogranising maternity leave and the list goes on. Classic Antenatal Classes spend a lot of time focusing on the birth and only touch on topics like breastfeeding and baby care. Knowing what to expect after your baby is born can totally change the way you approach this challenging time.

As a Lactation Consultant and a Neonatal Nurse I have more than 30yrs experience working with babies and have specialised in infant feeding and infant sleep. I present 3 different topics to provide you with all the necessary information to help prepare for the first 6 months of your baby's life.

Prepare to take your baby home with confidence

All partner's please come along! You are a vital part of this whole experience!
