This is a FREE course, and is open to those in the Hutt Valley or Wellington as it is funded by birthEd.
This course is designed for people who are interested in finding out if home birth might be right for them.
Topics covered will include the following:
Homebirth Preparation and Practicalities
Labour overview & birthing at home
Supporting normal physiological birth
Mum, baby, support person and midwives’ roles�·
Being born at home – your new baby
Meet new home birth parents
Enjoy a shared lunch – please bring something yummy with you.
This is an additional session following on from an antenatal course so it is recommended that you have previously attended a regular antenatal course (either with birthEd, or another organisation) before attending the homebirth session as the topics will be covering homebirth specifically, not general childbirth education questions. If you have a good understanding of the childbirth process already or have already had a baby, please do still book on.
