Prenatal Refresher - Childbirth the second (or third, or... ) time around.
“Your refresher gave us time to connect as a couple and think about this baby! It's so hard to find time to do that with the toddler!”
Our prenatal refresher provides safe and supportive environment for you and your birth partner to de-brief about your previous birth experiences, discover what's changed since your last birth, practice breathing, and revisit relaxation and comfort measures for your next birth. We will discuss the planning of a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Caesarean) and provide the opportunity to join one of our tours of VGH.
As with all of our Childbirth Preparation courses, Having A Baby Again is designed and taught by trained and experienced childbirth educators who are also doulas and breastfeeding counselors.
Topics covered include:
- The Stages of Labour
- Breath Awareness and Comfort Measures for Labour
- Medical Interventions
- Planning a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Caesarean)
- Informed Consent
- How to parent TWO children!
These are presented in a variety of ways, including discussion, hands-on practice, videos, couple work and group work.
