Birth Preparation Classes

The journey ahead

Often when we are preparing for birth we are searching for answers.  Maybe you are asking women who have birthed before, or your Lead Maternity Carer, these avenues are helpful.  Unique Beginnings's believe you also need to ask yourself the question …. ‘what do I need to know, in order to birth my baby?’ 

Given how birth culture and practices have changed over the years, it is likely that you have misplaced the ability to trust our own instincts.  Perhaps unknown to you, you have been taught to fear aspects of birth and how it might unfold.  Often your birth choices are influenced by this.   

No matter how much pressure our society may bring upon us to pretend otherwise, pregnancy, labor, and birth produce very powerful changes in women’s bodies, psyches, and lives, no matter by which exit route -natural or surgical- babies are born.” - Ina May Gaskin.

Birth is hard work! And you can do it!

How birth and parenthood unfolds for families is unique for each individual.  It will certainly push you out of your comfort zone and challenge you.  Often this can lead to feeling scared, confused, anxious and second guessing yourself.  These emotions do not support birth or your parenthood journey.  Potentially delaying labour or perhaps cause emotional distress in parenthood, if these concerns aren’t address.  Would you be interested to discover what could help support you before/during/after birth?

"From the first visit, I had a huge sense of relief that someone understood me. Rebecca took the time to sit, observe and just talk, it was really refreshing. Rebecca is really down to earth, approachable, friendly, professional who just brings the calm with her. Her advice and support are priceless!"
