The Master Class series has separate Childbirth Education. I have delivered over 10,000 babies and a wealth of knowledge on labour and childbirth. I educate expectant parents on the history of birth, the changes in your body while in labour, the use of pain relief or the option of no pain relief. I discuss calm and safe birthing and the positions that are comfortable for you to give birth to your baby. I don’t show any birth videos or show inappropriate photos of birth that may cause anxiety to both you and your partner. My aim is you are safe and your baby is born healthy. My 40 years experience in birth centres and labour wards enables me to not only teach you everything you need to know but answer any question you may have to ask.
In the Master Class I focus on early parenting. I teach parents about why babies sleep, why they don’t sleep, and how to get them to sleep! I love teaching the Master Class especially to expectant mums and dads, partners and grandparents too. Lots of new parents don’t know what they don’t know and I aim to teach a practical and positive style of parenting. It’s so important for both parents to come and hear about the process, as I can prepare them, teach them about the bath and bottle routine, and explain how to continue with the routine and to how prevent falling into a few bad sleeping habits.
I talk about what interferes with sleep and the importance of floor play, and how using gadgets, seats and swings impacts on how the baby sleeps. The length of sleep for the baby will increase over time and as the baby gains weight.
