The Naked Midwives offer a series of four Zoom evening classes. These classes are held for expectant couples across Bournemouth, Poole, The New Forest and Southampton. Starting at 18:00, for a 2-hour session, the classes cover the last few weeks of pregnancy and what you should be doing during this time in preparation for the impending event. The early stages of labour, when to call the midwife, types of birth and pain relief. Our classes are comprehensive and complete, they will take you step by step throughout the childbirth journey, covering all birth pathways and eventualities up until 10 days following the birth – it isn’t as scary as it sounds!
We are particularly recognised for the work we do with birth partners – being the ‘guardians of the oxytocin! We will discuss safety and calming your baby, the benefit of Vitamin K, delayed cord clamping and skin to skin with your baby, s well as feeding options – be it bottle or breastfeeding, plus adaptation to motherhood and being a family. We also advise on diet, nutrition and relaxation and unbiased on education on parenting choices.
Regular sets of Zoom classes are run each month and we connect you with all the like minded parents to be within your area for that all important support network! In addition, once you are a member of the Naked Midwives family, should your birth/pregnancy have to change for whatever reason, we are happy to do a private 1-2-1 Zoom call with you to discuss and help you understand any new information.
