Course breakdown

The Postnatal Series 2
A crucial time for a new mum is the first 24 hours. This is why this module has two sessions. Watching these modules before you give birth will provide you with the knowledge you need ahead of time.

This lesson helps you ease into your new world and prepares you with the emotional changes you may experience and how to enjoy those first few hours with your baby. Such an important module (ideally) to be watched more than once ahead of birth!

We all recover at different stages depending on what happened during pregnancy and birth. This module dives into the physical recovery explaining why it is important to take your recovery journey at your own speed. Whether it’s your first or second baby, our body heals and recovers in different ways and we can learn to listen to our bodies.

How to tell when your baby is hungry and why not washing off vernix (birthday frosting) acts as a form of navigation for babies!
