Description

Empowering antenatal sessions for parents-to-be.

If you're looking for a supportive, non-judgemental way to prepare for a positive birth on your own terms, you're in the right place.

LoveBirth London is a complete, 5-week antenatal course created by doulas Saffron Garside and Olivia Southey. We regularly support hospital, birth centre and home births in London and are passionate about informed choice and compassionate care.

Our course might be perfect for you if:

  • you are pregnant for the first time and wondering how to navigate your options
  • you are pregnant for the second/third time and would like a more positive experience this time round
  • you want to prepare for birth in a way that suits your personality or the particular circumstances of your pregnancy
  • you want to prepare for birth with people who attend births themselves and have local knowledge and networks
  • you are feeling nervous about birth and want to explore your feelings and boost your confidence
  • you have had a positive birth experiene and want to get some group oxytocin before doing it all over again
  • you've heard of doulas and would like some of their warm support as you prepare for birth

With us facilitating your antenatal course you can expect to explore the following topics in depth:

Week 1: Preparing for Birth

Week 2: What happens to your body during labour and after? Cesarean birth included.

Week 3: Your toolkit for comfort in labour

Week 4: The 'what ifs'

Week 5: Birth rights, choices and preferences


Benefits of the LoveBirth London course include:

  • private online community for LoveBirth London parents where we offer wrap-around support
  • learn how to create and communicate a birth plan that truly suits you
  • meet other like-minded parents and start creating your 'village'
  • develop great communication with your birth partner
  • be surrounded by positivity about birth and dispel unhelpful myths
  • access non-biased information to support your choices


Further details:

The February-March course sessions will be held from 18:00-20:00 on 20th and 27th of February and 6th, 13th and 20th March 2018.

The LoveBirth London course is designed to be attended in your 2nd or 3rd trimester of pregnancy. You are welcome whether this is your first or fifth baby. You are welcome to bring a partner, who is included in your ticket price, but the course will be equally valuable if you are coming solo. Delicious food and drinks can be purchased at the venue. All course materials are provided, please just bring an open mind and maybe a notebook.

As doulas, we offer emotional, practical and informational support and bring the benefits of our experience as birthworkers and mothers. We do not offer medical advice.
