Our Updated Refresher ..

Refresh with Us!

We are thrilled to be able to bring you a Refresher Class aimed at updating and empowering you for labour, birth and for your infant feeding journey ahead. 

Originally designed for women and couples birthing previously, this class may also be of interest for first time around parents that desire a shorter 'one off class'. Note: Care of the newborn baby (other than feeding) is not covered in this class. 

Why chose this Class? ...

Are you wanting a very different birth experience from the last birth? Are you planning a VBAC (Vaginal Birth after Cesarean)? Are you anxious about leaving your current little one at home and wondering when you can get home to them? Are you wanting to explore the options for birth more? Wondering about your infant-feeding journey this time? Did you experience issues with milk supply, mastitis or experience any other feeding complications last time that you are keen to avoid this time? 

Come and refresh with us, Anna and Rachel or Emily .. feel well informed, confident and excited when the class ends!
