Course Content

This refresher course provides you with up-to-date information that you need to feel comfortable and confident in your birth process this 2nd or 3rd time around. You should feel able to make informed choices about the kind of birth experience you want. Gain confidence and unbiased knowledge to ask questions of your doctor.

The course is customised to provide you choices of the topics that you would like to recap. The following are suggested topics based on our regular Childbirth Preparation course. You may choose any two from the sessions below to join depending on your current needs.

Session 1:  What is labour and pain relief options?

Session 2:  The miracle of birth and variations on the normal

Session 3:  After birth and feeding your baby

Session 4:  Care of newborn

Our class size is limited to ensure a conducive, cosy and relaxed learning environment. The interactive sessions helps focus your mind in preparing for the upcoming birth of your child and care of your newborn baby.

The social context is equally important. You will meet other expectant couples who are due to deliver at the same time, and create a social network of friends who are about to embark in the same experience as you. Long term friendships can develop from our classes that help to strengthen the support systems for you.


When should I register for the course?

At the beginning of your 2nd trimester (between the 13th to 27th weeks).

Can this Private course be conducted in the privacy of our home?

Yes, we will have happy to accommodate your wish for a Private Refresher course. Just let our team know when you contact us to set the 2 hour Private Refresher course date and discuss the special pricing.

I am also interested in attending the Active Birth class in conjunction with this Refresher course. When should I attend?

The preference is to do the Active Birth class in the 3rd trimester between the 28th to 40th weeks as the techniques you learn will be beneficial in late pregnancy. Please refer to the website for dates and pricing.

Once you have your appointment date, you can proceed to book and pay online.
