We at Neighbourhod Midwives believe that good mental and physical preparation in pregnancy is vital for ensuring you have a positive transition from pregnancy to birth and early parentng. There are currently a wide range of birth preparation modalities available. Having taught antenatal classes within the NHS and privately as well as working in hospital and home we feel we have a good understanding for what parents need to know to be prepared and knowledgable about their birth choices. We have a wide range of skills sets and are able to offer classes to suit your individual needs whether that be ina group or one-to-one classes.
HypnoBirthing is a complete birth education programme, that teaches simple but specific self hypnosis, relaxation and breathing techniques for a better birth.
With HypnoBirthing, you'll discover that severe pain does not have to be an accompaniment of labour
You'll learn how to release the fears and anxieties you may currently have about giving birth, and how to overcome previous traumatic births
HypnoBirthing teaches you how to remain calm and relaxed to optimise your birth experience.
We are able to offer HypnoBirthing as one-to-one classes in your home or in a group setting.
Whole Being Birth Preparation - Aveta
Aveta is our new and exciting experiential birth preparation group. It is very difficult to explain however rest assured it is fun, interesting and interactive to music, includes movement, relaxation, birth art and more...
This class is unique to Neighbourhood Midwives and has been formulated using knowledge gained from years of teaching 'normal' antenatal classes which we felt didn't quite prepare for the emotional aspect of birth and mothering.
This is a class that has to be experienced to be explained.
This is a 2 hour workshop which is held once a month. It is faciitated by midwives experienced in giving breastfeeding support and who have come across typical issues which arise in the early days of breastfeeding and which can make the difference between comfort and early success and problems.
