About this Event

Positive Birth and Parenting Workshop Mon Night (Face to Face and Online) of 7 sessions held on Monday evenings for 7 weeks.  Each class runs for 2 hours, 7 pm – 9 pm and includes a supper break. First time parents-to-be, benefit enormously from these classes as there is plenty of time to interact and discuss a range of topics from labour and birth to breastfeeding and parenting.

The childbirth preparation component of the workshop brings together only evidence based techniques and practices that will assist you during labour and birth. The techniques that you learn for your birth in this course have been subjected to a randomised controlled trial (conducted by Kate Levett and published in the British Medical Journal in 2016). This trial demonstrated significantly improved outcomes for women and babies.

YOU MUST BE BIRTHING YOUR BABY AT WESTMEAD PUBLIC HOSPITAL TO RECEIVE A DISCOUNTED FEE. ALL WOMEN BOOKED TO BIRTH THEIR BABY AT ANOTHER HOSPITAL MUST PAY FULL FEE.
