Birth and Parenting Preparation Weekend: 22-23 April 2016

Due to popular demand I’m going to be running an antenatal preparation workshop in our lovely Margate holiday house on the weekend of April 23rd 2016. Based on the popular private sessions I run, this workshop is aimed at first time parents whatever their birth plans or parenting style is. We’ll get together in a cosy cottage by the seaside for two days. There will be plenty of time to relax and explore Margate’s beaches, restaurants, bars and vintage shops too. Experienced pregnancy massage therapist Georgia Brown will be offering appointments during the weekend.

The workshop content will be shaped by the (small) group but I expect to cover:

– basic birth physiology
– positions for labour and birth
– comfort measures and pain relief for labour
– partner’s role
– massage and breathing
– preparing emotionally for birth and new parenthood
– choosing where to give birth
– caesarean birth
– fears and hopes
– feeding your baby
– the first few weeks as parents

Cost: £300 per couple for the weekend (discounts for single parents readily available). Accommodation will need to be arranged separately. Pregnancy massage and other treatments will be at an additional cost.

Please share with anyone who might be interested and get in touch sharpish as I’m keeping it small. A residential package will be available on first come first serve with lots of other recommendations for lovely places to stay close-by for those coming from London or further afield.
