ONE TO ONE SESSIONS – £65 (2hr sessions)
This session is perfect for women who have had a previous birth and wants a quick recap on labour or breastfeeding, or for a woman who has very little time available due to other commitments and therefore cannot attend a full course. You can chose which areas you need to brush up on. If you had a traumatic birth previously these sessions can be invaluable . Women can use this session to debrief and let go of deep fears that they may be carrying with them into their approaching labour and birth. These sessions are flexible time wise and can be held in your home or at Justine’s
SPECIAL COURSE FOR ELECTIVE SECTION WOMEN – £155
Sometimes due to maternal or foetal reasons a woman finds herself having to undergo an elective section rather than a vaginal birth. This can be a great dissappointment to some women as believe it or not most women do look forward to giving birth!
It can be a quite frightening prospect for a woman and often means that they miss out antenatal classes and therefore meeting other women that are becoming mothers.
We have designed a course for you. It consists of a one- to-one session in your home to empower and prepare you for your elected section. We will go through how to prepare yourself, what happens on the day and how best to recover.
You will then join one of the existing courses to do the breast feeding and postnatal sessions where you will meet other mothers and birthpartners to be.
