These classes are run by Amanda Wardle from Doulala. Amanda (midwife) says: This is a one-off 3hour workshop especially designed for dads-to-be.
During the workshop you will explore how best to support your partner emotionally and physically through pregnancy, labour, birth and in the early postnatal days.
You will leave understanding the different stages of labour, when labour has started and when to go to the hospital or call the midwife.
Different methods of coping in labour will be discussed as well as pain relief and how to avoid medical interventions.
Practical babycare tips are shared and you will have the opportunity to practice changing nappies, bathing and winding a baby (not a real one!) I will even give you a list of tried and tested newborn calming tips to take home so you feel fully prepared for your new arrival and role as a dad.
