Caesarean Course

New mum with a Caesarian scar skin-to-skin with her newborn baby

The Birth Preparation Company is the only provider of Caesarean-specific antenatal courses in Norfolk. Specifically designed for women and their partners who are having a planned Caesarean birth, my Caesarean antenatal courses allow the participants to enjoy all the benefits of attending antenatal classes which contain information specific to their circumstances.

As an experienced practising midwife I will be able to provide you with an overview of what will happen on the day of your Caesarean birth, as well as the rest of your hospital stay. You will receive tips for recovery and early days with your baby, including breastfeeding, bottle feeding, baby care, bathing, babywearing (slings), safe sleep, sleep expectations and much more.

This course consists of one LIVE online session (Caesarean specific) followed by two face-to-face sessions, where you will join the participants of the regular antenatal course for the infant feeding and baby care parts of the course (3 sessions in total).

The Caesarean course runs on demand (once a month), please contact me for details about the upcoming dates.
