At You To Us we try to give abalanced approach to women, incorporating relevant information and exploring any fears that women may have around labour and birth. We teach from a realistic, honest, empowered and often humorous place. Our classes do not guarantee a perfect birth at the end, but encourages women to have an open mind and understand that childbirth is a profound rite of passage. Medical input can be incorporated into this philosophy when appropriate, but need not take away from the significance of this journey.
That childbirth is a profound rite of passage even when medical care is part of the birth.
The purpose of childbirth preparation is to prepare mothers to give birth with an open flexible mind, birth cannot be controlled by planning.
In giving realistic information to allow women to make informed choices in all areas. Such as place of birth, pain relief, and who to have present at the birth.
Parents deserve support for any birth option which might be right for them
Intensity is an inevitable part of childbirth, yet it is manageable.
Birth partners need support.
BIRTH PARTNERS You To Us, welcome all birth partners be they your mother, your best friend, your husband, girlfriend, wife or boyfriend. Some birth partners are really keen to come to classes and others are shy or a little hesitant. Let me soothe your concerns, firstly you are a really important part of the birth process by just being you. We will teach you a few skills and share some brilliant tips with you. Partners actually end up loving our classes, as they are alot of fun and really empowering.
