Event description
A one and a half day workshop to prepare you for what to expect for labour, birth, postpartum and life with a newborn.

About this event

Are you feeling uncertain or worried about your upcoming birth? Does the idea of this next phase of your life as a parent or caregiver feel a little overwhelming? If so, this workshop is for you.

Registered midwife, ex-emergency nurse, mother, and creator of The Holistic Midwife, Isabel Critch, has seen it all, been through it all and really gets it. Inspired by her own experience with birth and its unexpected challenges, she created the ‘Empowered Birth to Parenthood’ workshop to help people like you confidently enter into the uncertain world of parenthood. Whether you’re pregnant, a birth partner or support person, over two intensive sessions Izzy will guide you through each topic, ensuring you feel supported, confident and ready for birth, postpartum (after birth) and life with a newborn.

Put your parenting 101 book back on the shelf, because in this workshop you’ll get the hands-on experience and knowledge essential for your upcoming birth and life after birth. You’ll also have unlimited access to Izzy’s wealth of knowledge as well as her professional and personal advice as both a midwife and mother.

Izzy’s contagious energy ensures her workshops are always a safe, supportive and fun environment where attendees can learn while also having a laugh together.

In this workshop you will:

🌿 Learn what options are available to you.

🌿 Gain practical tools and skills to help you with those “what now” moments.

🌿 Feel confident to ask questions without judgement.

🌿 Learn how to thrive after birth, not just ‘survive’.
