Description

BodyBirthBaby

This is a FREE course, but only to those who reside in the Hutt Valley as it is funded by the HVDHB.

 

This course will prepare you for giving birth and what to expect in those first weeks with your new baby.

 

Some of the topics covered over 5 weeks;

 

  • Nutrition, pregnancy safety and general health issues
  • What midwives and doctors do for you
  • The pregnant and birthing body
  • Labour overview and stages
  • Birth choices
  • Self-help during labour and birth
  • Pain management
  • Breastfeeding
  • After the birth
  • Parenting in the early days
  • Postnatal depression and taking care of you
  • Support and help services

 

We recommend you also book into a ‘Your New Baby’ course as this will give you valuable information about taking care of your baby. Check out our other ‘follow on’ courses – Homebirth, Breastfeeding Masterclass, Keeping Your Baby Safe and Out of the Blues

Please note: This is a FREE course, but only to those who reside in the Hutt Valley.
