Birth Classes

The best gift you can give yourself, your partner & your baby

Why do you need a birth class anyway?

Having a baby is a life-changing event.

The way you feel and how you’re cared for during birth will be with you forever.  If you want a natural, healthy birth for your baby; if you’re counting on your partner knowing what to do; if you want to feel positive about your baby’s birth whatever comes your way, you need to prepare.  A birth class with Fit for Birth will tell you what the hospital classes don’t.  It will give you and your partner time away from your busy lives to learn how to work as a team and learn all the skills and knowledge you need.  It’s never a waste of time and always a fantastic investment in your relationship and your birth.

To prepare for birth, choose from Calmbirth or Birth Secrets

To prepare for life with your newborn, add Newborn Secrets for Couples.

Birth Secrets for Couples

The 10 best kept secrets about birth that you both need to know

In this fun 4 hour session you’ll learn things that no-one else tells you.

  • That your body is designed perfectly to birth your baby.  I’ll show you how using my friend the knitted uterus and Paddy the pelvis, plus my baby doll Ted.
  • That your partner already knows everything he needs to know to help you stay comfortable during labour, but he just doesn’t know that he already knows it, so I’ll remind him and you can have a practice together.
  • That you’ll go to a very special place in labour (not just the hospital) where you’re “Princess for a day”, and in that place you could feel euphoric, ecstatic and joyful – does that sound good?
  • That partners are just as important in the birth process as you and the baby, and I’ll bring them onto the same page as you so you can both talk about and feel excited about the birth – what a relief!
  • That you have the right to ask questions during labour and say yes or no depending on what’s right for YOU while working with the hospital’s routines.  I’ll teach you how to do it simply and politely.
  • Plus more yummy secrets.  I’ll tell you when you get here …….

Newborn Secrets for Couples

The class you think you DON’T need

Most couples focus completely on the birth and then have no idea what to do once the baby’s in their arms.  Most couples struggle in the first few months of their baby’s life because they didn’t learn about breastfeeding, sleeping, crying, settling, and looking after themselves on limited sleep and maximum stress.  This wonderful class for couples reveals the secrets to help you cope and even enjoy this amazing newborn time.  Meet other parents-to-be and enjoy delicious snacks.
