Birth & Early Parenting Programs

These practical programs are ideal for busy people who are having their first baby, or for those who have previously had a baby and would like a refresher.

This intensive and comprehensive one day program includes two sessions providing non-biased information on birth and parenting a newborn baby.

The Birth Program is a Morning Session: 9am – 1.15pm

The focus of the Birth Program is to provide positive information, tips and discussion on the following:

  • The birth process and the signs and stages of labour
  • The positive effects of hormones
  • Supporting the birthing mum
  • Positions during birth and active birth
  • Medical  management

The Early Parenting Program is an Afternoon Session: 2pm – 5pm

The focus of the parenting program offers practical information covering:

  • Caring for a newborn baby’s needs
  • Interacting with a newborn
  • Understanding the needs and behaviour of a newborn baby
  • Becoming parents
  • Community resources for parents

Limited group size allow for generous discussion and a more personalised service.

The ideal time to attend the workshop is when you are 28-34 weeks pregnant – so plan to book ahead however all late bookings are welcome.

These workshops are held in Neutral Bay which is two minutes north of the Harbour Bridge. Morning and afternoon tea is provided.

Cost for the one day program (including both Birth and Parenting Program) is $250 per couple – this includes all workshop notes and books on preparing for birth.  Alternatively, you can choose to attend just the Birth Program for $190 per couple (including books) or the parenting session for $120.
