Postpartum For Dads
Being thrown head first into a world of sleepless nights, dirty nappies and constant feeding after the birth of a new baby can turn every new parent’s life upside down. And while there are any number of pre and postnatal groups for mothers and babies, there is little or no support for fathers around. We are hoping to change that!
The Postpartum For Dads Workshop offers a positive and supported space for men to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to be the best they possibly can be in their first year as parents. In a relaxed atmosphere, men can be completely honest about their questions and fears about their new role as a father - nothing is off limits and no question is ridiculous.
This fun class was created as a space especially for men and to help fathers, grandfathers or other male care givers to learn the ropes of infant care! We go through nappy changing (both cloth and disposable nappies), bonding with baby, learning how to help support new mothers through breastfeeding, paced bottle feeding, learning how to hold a newborn and much more. We also look at what’s happening during birth and how you can look after yourself as a Dad. You will finish this workshop with plenty of practical knowledge and feeling prepared and confident!
Come along and have a great time learning! Classes are held in a group setting or as a one-on-one, whatever suits you.

Birth Preference Planning Session
Having a set of Birth Preferences has a number of benefits, most of all that it helps you to educate yourself on the options that are available to you for your labour and birth. Birth Preferences are also a wonderful tool to help you communicate effectively with your care providers! While having written out your preferences does not guarantee a certain outcome or birthing experience, it does help towards you feeling involved and in control of the process. We will also create what if scenarios and a Plan B, should things not go according to the original plan. Creating your Birth Preferences is your opportunity to inform yourself about all your options and make the best choices for you and your family.
