Dads & Birthing Partners
IS YOUR PARTNER EXPECTING A BABY?
HAVE YOU BEEN ASKED TO BE BIRTH PARTNER FOR YOUR DAUGHTER/SISTER/FRIEND?
DO YOU FEEL COMPLETELY OVERWHELMED BY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF BEING A BIRTH PARTNER?
WOULD YOU JUST LIKE TO LEARN MORE SKILLS?
THEN OUR EXCLUSIVE BIRTH PARTNER WORKSHOP IS FOR YOU.
Understandably there is a lot of focus during your antenatal care on the birthing person. But, for partners, it’s also an anxious time, as they try to find practical information on what or how they can contribute.
Come and learn more from our experienced team of antenatal educators and doulas who will be giving out tips and tricks that may sound simple but will be so valuable to the person giving birth:
Learn how to communicate successfully with the medical staff attending the birth in order to help you find out information and make decisions when necessary, fully comprehending the pros and cons of any intervention suggested.
Find out how simple changes to the birth environment (whether it is in a highly medicalised setting, or a birth centre) can make massive changes to the birth process.
Discuss how your support techniques can be adapted to whatever type of birth your partner is having i.e. water birth, epidural, caesarean.
Develop confidence in using massage techniques that will help manage pain and increase comfort
Ask questions of a new father and hear how these techniques enabled him to support his wife during her lockdown birth.
And much more…
