Antenatal class with YouToUs
5 week course Thursdays 6 – 8:30pm
16 June – 14 July 2022
Our society has taken childbirth and medicalised it, placed fear around it and forgotten that all women do have an innate knowledge, (whether they know it or not) of birthing. We aim to provide women/people and their birthing partners with a balanced overview regarding the natural and medical aspects of birth
We teach from a realistic, honest, empowered and often humorous place. Our classes do not guarantee a perfect birth in the end but encourage women to have an open mind and understand that childbirth is a profound rite of passage. Medical input can be incorporated into this philosophy when appropriate but need not take away from the significance of this journey.
Our sessions are small and informal (around 6-8 couples) and we have witnessed wonderful and supportive friendships blossoming in our classes that have lasted beyond birth and into motherhood.
