Private Birth And Postnatal Education

The only thing predictable about giving birth and life with a new baby is that it is unpredictable.

You likely lead a very busy life and maybe slotting in antenatal classes is tricky. Private 1:1 antenatal education could offer you the support and knowledge at a time to suit you.

You may be okay with the unknown or it may scare you; both feelings are common. But antenatal education and support is vital to help you to understand how much birth will impact your future.

Just because things can change does not mean that you should go into labour, birth and the postnatal period unprepared.

Perhaps you know that you are facing a c-section or an induction and you want to prepare for this with one-to-one support to guide you through your options and creating your birth plan.

No matter what birth you are facing there are always choices that can be made.

If you feel you would like some support to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to prepare you for parenthood I can provide you with information and support.

We will be able to discuss the potential benefits, risks, and alternatives for different paths.

Taking place from the comfort of your own home, either via video call or in person. We can formulate a plan together and go through your options for labour, birth and the early days after having your baby.

I usually offer this in a 2hr session for birth planning, and a 2hr session for postnatal planning. But depending on what support you think you may need this can be adapted to suit you and your timeframe.

Private antenatal details

This will be entirely tailored to you but I can cover topics such as:

  • Choosing where to birth your baby
  • The path to birth
  • Stages of labour
  • Pain relief options
  • Hormones and birth environment, how they play a huge role in labour and birth
  • Being active in labour, moves and positions to try
  • The importance of having back up plans – and help to form them
  • Comfort measures, best positions, massage, breathing
  • Birth Partner advice and tips
  • Hypnobirthing
  • Active Birth
  • Induction
  • Caesarean/c-section
  • Help to formulate a birth plan

Client feedback

I’ve done Jilly’s birthing class with both my babies and I can honestly say I would recommend the classes to everyone. Both my children were induced and I was still able to have the calm controlled birth that I’d hoped for. The knowledge and understanding you get of the labour process is so empowering and the breathing and relaxation is just amazing. Thank you Jilly!

Meira

Birthing Class

Jilly, thank you so much for everything you taught during our Antenatal Course. It honestly made a huge difference to how positive my birth was. My partner was so supportive and prepared thanks to the parent classes. I felt completely in control for the entire 26 hour labour – I just felt so calm, the breaths were incredible and the consultant commented on how she couldn’t believe I’d refused an epidural. I felt confident enough to question and on occasion challenge recommendations of the midwives so that the birth ended up being as natural as possible! A very positive experience to look back on. Thank you!!

Stephanie

My husband and I attended Jilly’s Antenatal Course and found it to be extremely informative, helpful and fun. We were able to take away some very useful breathing and massage techniques, to help us through labour, and it was really nice to meet some fellow mums-to-be who were at the same stage of pregnancy as me, along with their husbands who also attended the course. Jilly was very friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming and so I didn’t hesitate in signing up to her baby classes once my son had arrived.

Ashley

Birthing Workshop

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all you taught myself and my partner in our classes! I honestly wouldn’t of been able to get through it without the breathing techniques we learnt! And we both felt so in control as we knew all the info and our options!! Thank you again!
