We want to promote positive birth. Our antenatal class, The Real Birth Workshop
, can help to empower pregnant women and their birth partners during the time leading up to birth and dramatically reduce the fear that women can feel at the prospect of having a baby. We help to educate women and birth partners about the normal physiological changes that occur in pregnancy, leading to the beginning of labour, throughout their birth, and beyond.
Understanding the bio-mechanism of labour and the influence of the endocrine system, helps women and birthing partners feel more knowledgeable. This helps them work out how to feel more actively involved when considering choices. Evidence shows that women who feel knowledgeable about the process of birth report a positive birth experience irrespective of mode of birth.
Women who access this course report feeling excited about labour and birth, and looking forward to the experience.
