In order to understand the process of pregnancy, birth, and the postnatal period, it is very important to take antenatal classes.
It is very fortunate that the NHS offers free antenatal classes to all couples. In spite of this, they are often conducted during the day when some birth partners may not be able to attend due to work commitments, so a number of private antenatal courses are now available.
During my pregnancy, I decided to do them all! NCT, Active Birth classes, Hypnobirthing (yes, it was around 14 years ago) and NHS free classes were all available. Which one helped me the most? All of them were good, but hypnobirthing helped me to have an open and positive mind. Today, hypnobirthing classes are a complete antenatal class, which is much more convenient than my 3-hour session lying on a woman’s sofa in Wales! Over the last six years, I have been teaching KG Hypnobirthing, which is the UK’s leading brand. Both parents experience such amazing changes. Not everyone has a straightforward birth, but everyone has a positive experience. As a result of practicing and learning their rights, they feel confident in asking questions in order to make informed decisions.
Another antenatal course to help you prepare for the 4th trimester is Confident Parenting and Baby First Aid.
Typically, parent/s to be often find themselves consumed with thoughts of the birth and the anticipation of meeting their newborn baby, but they may not always consider the practicalities and responsibilities that come with caring for a baby once they are born. It is crucial for expectant parent/s to not only prepare for the birthing process but also to equip themselves with the necessary knowledge and skills to confidently navigate the journey of parenthood.
