Birth Management Classes

Birth Management Education In the Comfort of Your Home

What Does The Class Cover?

Our birth management class continues the exploration of labour and birth – this time from an alternative perspective to our Labour and Birth Process class. During the live, interactive and online class we explore alternative pathways to birth because we know that labour and birth can be unpredictable, and that birth comes in many forms.

Our ethos for our expert-led online antenatal course is to help you feel prepared for birth (however that may be) and able to plan ahead that meets your needs.

We revisit in this class essential knowledge on how to advocate for yourself and decision making in your pregnancy – using practical skills such as BRAIN & HEART tools so that you can make informed choices.

Birth Management Class Details

We know that labour and birth looks different for everyone, and for some that is right at the beginning of the labour process. We discuss induction and augmentation, what this means, why you may be advised to have the intervention, what methods are available, and the risks and benefits of each procedure is discussed in detail by our experienced midwives who bring their real-life knowledge and expertise.

The class also explores how you can use skills such as active birth, hypnobirthing, movement, breathing techniques that we have explored in previous classes as well as how monitoring of your baby and being in hospital may impact your labour too.

We then explore in detail pain management and pain relief – methods such as water and TEN’s machine and medicalised options from gas and air to epidural.  Lots of practical advice and examples shared of how you can use different methods to their best affect and how your partner can support you too.

Birth variations such as assisted birth – vacuum assisted or forceps birth, again delving into why they may be used, when and how the intervention may happen and what the risks and benefits are of each. Birth by caesarean operation is also explored in detail – from why it may be advised, what happens during the procedure, what happens after your baby is born and your immediate postnatal care.  We also discuss how to make birth by caesarean empowering and positive using techniques such as gentle caesarean in detail.

In our Birth Management class we learn about:

    • How to advocate and make informed decisions 
    • The induction and augmentation of childbirth
    • Pain management / Pain relief – from TENS machines to Epidurals
    • What is birth variation and why it may happen
