Class hiatus: classes for later in 2017 will be updated on my website once dates confirmed
I’ve been working as a midwife since 2002, in my career I have worked in two of Nottingham’s maternity units and for the last eight years as a community midwife covering the North Nottinghamshire area. I have supported hundreds of women through labour and birth to achieve a positive experience to be proud of and I have been leading antenatal classes for many years, constantly striving to improve the experience for expectant couples.
If you are taught the necessary knowledge and skills to give you the confidence and self-belief in your ability to birth your baby, you can better your chances to reach your goal of a positive, empowered birth experience.
Unfortunately, the current provision for antenatal classes offered to couples through NHS trusts are unlikely to teach you coping strategies and techniques to birthing with minimal pain relief. Very often I’m asked by women – when will they be taught breathing exercises and relaxation techniques? Private classes offer a much more in-depth level of information as well as practical skills, are less rushed and are not overcrowded.
