I offer Birth and Baby Workshops and
Please read the information below to decide which would be right for you.
Birth and Baby Workshop
This is a ‘birth course plus’ which focusses on the needs of expectant parents and on essential skills and choices for labour, birth and early parenting.
The aims of the Birth and Baby Workshop are:
- to explain the process of birth: what exactly happens during labour and how that feels
- to explore ways of working with labour: non-medical and medical ways of managing pain, giving support and working as a team
- to increase physical and emotional confidence for both birth and baby care
- to provide an opportunity to meet and work with other expectant parents
The workshop takes one weekend and two evenings to complete.
It begins with the weekend with sessions from 10.00 to 17.00 on both Saturday and Sunday.
The two evenings are:
A Hospital Visit and a Basics of Breastfeeding plus Postnatal Issues evening.
These evenings are arranged at times to suit the group.
Birth and Baby Workshops are held regularly through the year depending on demand and the best time to attend one is during the last three months of your pregnancy.
The cost of the whole Birth and Baby Workshop is kr3500 per couple.
Individual Birth Course
If you are unable to attend a Birth and Baby Workshop I can usually offer an individual course as an alternative.
This would be in your own home at times to suit you and takes three evenings plus a visit to the hospital if you would like to do that.
The cost of an individual birth course is kr4800 per couple.
If you have given birth before you may feel that you don’t need a full course and may want to arrange a Birth Consultation.
This is in your own home, at a time to suit you, and usually takes 2-3 hours.
We will talk through your previous birth or births and prepare for this birth and new baby.
The cost of a Birth Consultation is kr1500.
If you haven’t given birth in Stavanger before you may wish to add a
Guided Hospital Visit which costs kr300 per couple.
