In a time when postnatal care may be in short supply you need information from a source you can trust, as well as a little guidance on how to navigate the unknown territory of being a new parent.
In this course I draw on my 36 years knowledge from being a registered Midwife and former registered nurse, and my own 26 years of being a parent, to bring you practical information and tips on baby care, newborn behaviour and adjusting to new parenthood. I draw on the wisdom of all the families I have cared for, and from my midwifery colleagues and great teachers such as Ina May Gaskin, Mary Cronk MBE, and Jane Hardwick-Collings. I also include links to other on-line resources to save you trawling through the internet to find information.
Take this course to prepare for life with a new baby, and also if you have recently given birth and feel like you need more information.
The information is in an easy to understand format with my top tips. checklists, and videos to enhance your learning experience.
This course is offered as antenatal education. it is designed to compliment, but not to replace your usual maternity and paediatric care. Please discuss your choices thoroughly with your care provider and always seek help if you or your baby appear unwell at anytime.
I am a former Independent Midwife, Pregnancy and Birth Coach and Antenatal Educator. I was a midwife for 21 years and a nurse 16 years before that. I have a Diploma in Antenatal Education through the national childbirth trust, and enjoy educating mothers, non-binary or trans people and their partners. I am asked to speak at conferences around the world, sharing my passion for birth with other midwives, and birth workers. I have supported hundreds of families on their journey to joy-full birth and parenthood, and would love to share my knowledge with you.
