BIRTH PREPARATION CLASSES
The classes in section are more non active and alternatives to your traditional NHS or NCT type class. Your midwife will advise you of your local NHS antenatal classes that are usually towards the end of your pregnancy and there are some other options below:
Midwife led antenatal classes at Turtle Dove, Davidson Mains.
Mummynatal birth preparation classes by Sharon Meikle in Edinburgh & Musselburgh. Sharon's classes feature mindfulness techniques, meditation, birth ball exercise and optimum positioning, birth education and breathing practice for a calm birth.
NATIONAL CHILDBIRTH TRUST (NCT)
These signature antenatal courses have been running for over 60 years. A great in-depth course in your area to help prepare you for childbirth and caring for a newborn.
Tricia offers one 2 one birth coaching which is a unique programme tailored specifically to you. You may have already attended generic antenatal classes and are still feeling anxious or you may have had a previous traumatic birth. Tricia will work through all your concerns using a variety of techniques including EFT which can also be used as a method of pain relief during birth. Check out testimonials from previous clients.
Tricia also offers a great online support and resource through her Edinburgh Birth and Baby Academy
