I absolutely love working with parents expecting a babe! This is such an exciting time in your life, anticipating the arrival of your new little babe.
One of the biggest preparations you will have during those nine months will be for labour and birth.
I am a strong believer that parents deserve to have options and choice available to them. Not all birth education classes are the same and there definitely isn't one size fits all! For example, some parents love hypnobirthing, whilst others don't - and that's okay. That's why we have options!!
Over the nine years of working with parents, I have found that it can be difficult to navigate those options or even know they are available! I am so proud to be part of the change in Gippsland, bringing an incredible birth education classes to you. Read below to find out more...
