Our labour and birth pathway class, delves into what happens during the birthing process. The live, interactive and online class focuses on supporting you on expanding your knowledge and understanding of labour and birth – from how you view labour, to the emotional and physical impact of the changes your body goes
through.

During the class our experienced midwives, who are passionate about ensuring you feel ready, supported and prepared for labour and birth, exploring the different stages of labour, what happens to your body, how you can be supported in each stage and what options for you may be offered.

As midwives we know that labour and birth can be hard to plan for, but we believe strongly that being prepared will help you feel empowered and confident in your body and your birth. We discuss honestly and openly with you how each aspect of labour – such as pre-labour or the latent phase may feel, the impact it may have in you and practical, real life examples of how to manage each stage.

    Advice and Tips

    Labour Class FAQ

    How will I know I’m in labour?

    Every ones experience of labour is unique – and the same applies for signs that labour has begun. In fact, you may only be able to work out when labour truly started after you’ve been through it! However, there are some tell-tale signs and symptoms that your body is getting ready for the big day such as:

    • Lower back
    • Contractions/surges that may be irregular in strength and frequency
    • Broken waters
    • The mucus plug – often called a ‘show’ coming away
    • Upset tummy or loose bowels
    • Braxton Hicks contractions

    We explore what each of these mean and why they happen in detail during our Labour & Birth Pathway class as part of our signature Antenatal course that is live, interactive and online.

    How long will I be in labour for?

    This can vary – a lot! – from person to person. It depends on lots of different factors related to you, your body, what position your baby is in, how you are feeling and so much more.

    On average – labour can last anything from 8 – 18 hours, but can be less or more. During our Labour & birth class we explore why this can happen, what you can do to help your labour progress and how to manage your labour at home or in hospital.

    When do I go to the birth centre/hospital in labour?

    This can vary from person to person, although you will be advised to contact the birth centre / hospital when you are in active labour. In practical terms this means that your contractions will gradually become stronger, longer and more frequent. You will know when you are ready to go into hospital, as you will notice the change in pace and intensity of contractions.

    We explore during our Labour & Birth class the difference in contractions / surges, what this may feel like, when to contact your midwife and how to manage your labour at home or in hospital.

    Labour Courses – We love helping new parents

    Our course leader highlights that ‘labour and birth is unique and different for each person and can vary greatly. What we know as midwives, from being with you during the birth process is that understanding what is happening, your birth partner knowing how to support you and feeling confident in your ability to birth you baby leads to a positive and empowering birth experience. That is what we are passionate about sharing with you – honestly, openly, with humour and with love.’
