 " Birth is not only about making babies

Barbara Katz Rothman

The First Timers Course

 

This course has been designed with first time parents in mind and will improve your experience of birth and early parenting. (One to one and refreshers courses are available for subsequent births).

 

This small and intimate group course provides you with the opportunity to meet and really get to know other like minded parents to be. 

Over the five weeks you will learn simple yet powerful tools to help you and your birth partner to stay calm during labour and to help you transition confidently into your new parenting roles. 

 

This course is delivered by an NHS Health Visitor, hypnobirthing, breastfeeding and holistic infant sleep practitioner. It is evidenced based and well balanced, no chanting or awkward group work involved!

"Hypnobirthing not only enabled me to go through the majority of labour with little pain relief, just the use of breathing and relaxation techniques, it had also given Matt so much confidence knowing more about the labour and the ways in which he can help me through it." Mummy to baby Rufus.

Natalie and Joe  ~ First Time Parents 

" The course helped my husband to be really supportive and practical during my birth. It gave me so much confidence to ask more questions of the midwives and doctors and listen to my own instincts. It really changed my experience of birth and supported me to stay at home way into my labour.  Aimee is such a warm and knowledgeable person, who makes you feel really comfortable. Aimee prepared a beautiful hypnobirthing pack for us and shared some really valuable resources. 

I would highly recommend karma babies! Thank you Aimee!"
