Antenatal Refresher Course

Expecting Again?

Are you looking to have a better birth experience this time around?  Are you hoping to make friends who are also due at around the same time as you? Would you like to learn how to introduce a new baby into the family successfully, so that you are enriching the bond between your children?

We are committed to supporting parents throughout their entire parenting journey, and we know that having a baby for the 2nd/3rd/4th time can be just as scary (sometimes more so) than it was the 1st time around.

These sessions will give you the opportunity to meet up with other parents who are “expecting again”, enabling you to make new friends whose babies are due at around the same time as yours.

We did NCT first time around, and i thought i knew everything. However after 1 hour with Sallyann on the Expecting Again course i realised that i hadn’t known anything at all. Our birth this time around couldn’t have been more different.  I feel so pleased that I got the water birth i wanted, and I have recovered so quickly. The friends we made are so lovely and we have met up a few times already.  Thanks so much for this wonderful course, we highly recommend it to all our friends.  – Nina

 

Course Content – 10 hours £95

 

During the sessions we will cover:-

Moving forward from your previous birth

We will discuss your previous birth experiences, hopes/fears for the next birth, revisit the basics (hormones, stages of labour, pain relief – natural and medical) , Caesarean birth, birth partner’s role, how to ensure that you get the birth you want, and where to have your baby.

Introducing a new baby to the family

Introduction of a new baby to the family, supporting the siblings to ensure a good relationship develops, taking care of you in those early days (with another child to look after), relationships and dynamics in the family and how they will change as your family grows and also we will cover feeding – looking at how to ensure that you feed the way that you want, no matter what your previous experience has been.  (Most families find this section extremely useful if they had a difficult feeding journey last time around)

Breathing and relaxation session

A daytime session (for women only) specifically tailored to support you no matter what type of birth you choose, this calm and relaxing session can reduce fear and give you skills that will be helpful for use in both the antenatal and postnatal period.

Postnatal support/reunion session

We invite you to attend one of our weekly coffee group sessions (free of charge) during which you can ask the team for advice on many newborn issues such as sleeping, feeding, and day to day concerns/worries. Subject to availability, we can offer the opportunity to de-brief your birth with one of the teachers if required. As a group, you may wish to set a date that you all attend together allowing you the opportunity to introduce your babies and have a formal reunion.
