Description

Hampshire Hospitals Maternity team are proud to present a 6 hour class (either 1 day or 2 x evening sessions) exploring the labour and birth journey, inclusive of all types of birth for women and their birth partners and the early postnatal period adjusting to life with a newborn baby.

Spaces are limited so we respectfully ask that classes are booked for women 28 weeks onwards and booked to birth with Hampshire Hospitals. Please do not book for a class if you do not fit this criteria.

  • Care after birth in hospital and after

If you are attending an all day event then please bring water and a cushion (for your comfort) and there will be breaks throughout the day to enable you to get lunch or drinks. Please note, these are not provided.

Whilst hormones and the birthing environment is discussed, we would encourage all couples to book our 'Confident Birthing' Class also which specifically teaches breathing & relaxation techniques as well as looking at positions to gently encourage your baby into the best position for birth.
