We understand the obvious concern that parents may be facing around preparing for an upcoming birth with the unknown impact of Covid-19.
With hospital restrictions and events being cancelled we want to find a way to support local parents to access the information and knowledge we know is so valuable before the birth of your baby.
Baby Co are offering an interactive online alternative that you can take part in from your own home using your computer, phone or tablet.
All sessions will be led by a qualified antenatal teacher and doula who has experience of maternity services in Northern Ireland.
Alongside the interactive sessions we will set up a Facebook group and WhatsApp group where we can share further information and participants can get to know each other and ask questions.
Our classes will follow a rolling format over a couple of weeks with 1-2 sessions per week via our simple videolink system.
Once you sign up for the course you will be added to the groups and you can pick which sessions you want to attend – the full course will consist of 5 two hour sessions. Exact timings for each topic will be confirmed prior to the course.
Session topics will include:
- How labour and birth work
- Preparing for labour and birth – physically and mentally
- Induction and augmentation
- Ceasarean section and other birth interventions
- Hypnobirthing mini session
- Practical aspects of baby care
- Baby Sleep
- Infant feeding
- Postnatal life
Course cost will be £25 per couple.
We can also offer an additional 1:1 session to discuss any topics important to you for £10 per hour.
