Event description

Description

Our You and Your Baby courses are designed to offer parents more choice when it comes to their antenatal education. The small class sizes encourage you to make friends with other local parents and because the classes are facilitated by practicing Royal Surrey midwives you will receive excellent midwife led, evidence based and accurate information as well!

The Surrey Hills Home Birth Team present a Waterbirth Workshop for Parents to be.

With 60% of their clients birthing their babies in water*, and more utilising water to aid them in their labours, the Surrey Hills midwives are very experience at facilitating informed decision making around the use of water in labour and birth, and supporting clients in its use.

Over the course of the evening we will explore:

Why water birth?- The benefits of water for mum and baby

Safety, Risks and Special Considerations - What are the risks of labouring and birthing in water ? When/why you might be advised to get out of the pool? What is the Consultant Led pool room and who can access it.

Caring for you and your baby in the water- How we can maintain safety and support you in your choice to labour and/or birth in water. What to wear. Pharmacological pain relief (drugs) and the use of water. The Birth Partners role and coping methods which compliment the use of the pool.

Tour of the maternity units pools (where vacant) including the Midwifery Led pool rooms and the Consultant Led pool. Demonstration (dry) of portable, inflatable, pool used commonly at home.

Please note that due to the nature of the class we will be sharing videos/images of labour and birth in water.
