Ante-Natal Classes on the Gold Coast

It's your choice ...
Private in home classes or Saturday all day class

I believe choice is a fundamental right for prospective parents.  Whether it is the choice of obstetrician or choice between private or public obstetric care, I provide a variety of flexible options to assist you to prepare for  birth and early parenting.

 

Private in home ante-natal class

A face to face classes can be provided in your own home at a time that is convenient to you. The class can be a full antenatal class, caesarean class, refresher or breastfeeding and parenting class, this enables a dynamic and personalised service. I have a wide range of experiences having worked in hospitals on the Gold Coast and Brisbane.

Full Antenatal class

Topics covered in the comfort of your own home include Labour and delivery.

You will discovery what is occuring in your body so you can understand the birth process and how you can work with your body. You will not be alone when you labour; how your partner can support you so that you can be a team and when to come to hospital will be discussed. You will have a better understanding of pain, how to your hormones can help you and pain relief options available to you at home and in hospital. Even when we know that birth is a normal natural process, being prepared for the unexpected will help you understand what assistance may be required.

As a lactation consultant breastfeeding doesn't come naturally for all mothers. Knowing where to turn for help will put you at ease. Learn the language of your newest member of your family by mindfully feeding and caring for your baby. I understand the issues you will face as you venture into parenting as I have visited many new families on the Gold Coast.  

Do you need help sorting through the stuff that babies come with? What is it you really need? All this and more is covered in your private class and the cost is $300.
