What you’ll learn – Module 6
Our expert midwives will take you through the sixth session of your course and this time we're focussing on you … the new mum!

We know that the changes that occur with your body and emotions after birth are often overshadowed and overlooked by the focus on baby.  In our new mum class, we bring the focus back onto you – as a new parent and all the changes that come with that.

 

The New Mum class, as part of our signature online antenatal course, is focused on helping you explore what parenthood may feel, look and be like for you with a new baby.  Nothing is taboo – we begin with what happens with your body straight after your baby has been born, what to expect such as postnatal bleeding, perineal recovery as well as how your body will change and adapt in the first few days and weeks after birth.

As always, the class is live and interactive, with lots of practical advice on a range of topics such as pelvic floor exercises, what to eat, coping with broken sleep – for you and your birth partner to consider to aid your postnatal recovery.

Our experienced midwives also know how important it is to discuss and truly explore your self-care and emotional well-being in the postnatal period.  All aspects of how your mental and emotional well-being may be affected is discussed honestly and openly, from what it may feel like, to where you can get help, the effect on your relationships and how your partner/family can support you.

The class is recorded and sent to you to watch back whenever you need – which can be so handy for the practical exercises such as abdominal care or making a ‘padsicle’ at home!.  And our support continues after the class ends, with our midwives always happy to offer advice and a chat via email or zoom when you need it.

Your physical and emotional recovery is important and essential to adapting to life as a new parent – so it’s important to take time to consider your options on:

    • Bleeding after birth and what it means
    • Perineal tears and care
    • Abdominal and pelvic floor exercises
    • Breast care information and changes that occur
    • Your emotional and mental health after your baby is due
    • Adjusting to life with a baby and how to prepare
