Antenatal education is such a key aspect of feeling in control, understanding your options and making informed decisions. Quite simply, if you don’t know your options, you don’t have any!
One of the biggest concerns that women have when it comes to having a baby is that they did not feel they were in control or had enough information. The feeling of being in control and making informed decisions is key to having a positive experience.
Many mums feel anxious at some point on their journey to motherhood, and in all honesty, a certain level of anxiety is normal but something that can really help is understanding. Understanding things like what happens to your body and why, the hormones that help you during labour, understanding the role of your midwife, how to make a birth plan A, B and C, what your birth partner really needs to know, normal newborn behaviour, and why no -+-mum ever really bounces back has the power to change your entire experience of motherhood and significantly reduce fear of the unknown. After seeing how much of a difference knowledge and antetantal education makes to women and their families I decided to record an online antenatal and postnatal course that you can watch in the comfort of your own home, when you want with whoever you want to. You deserve to be empowered with knowledge, feel confident and be in control.
I am currently pregnant with my first baby and recorded the whole course during my pregnancy as I too have been navigating decisions, making a birth plan, communicating my needs with my partner and preparing for a newborn! It isn’t easy at times – I know – but with the right tools, support and information you can ease your very unique transition to motherhood.
In the online antenatal and postnatal course the key take away is to know that you are the boss and you call the shots. Even if things do not go according to plan you are still in control of what happens next. Ask about your options, why things are being recommended to you and get the information you need to move forward.
