What is the course about?
The Birth Ready Pack is an online on-demand course designed to change your view about labour and birth. Our first impression of what birth is like, probably came from a movie and we all remember that screaming mum with a bright red face pushing out a baby. But that's all for show! There are ways to prepare for labour, both mentally and physically, to help you achieve a calm and comfortable birth. By its nature, labour is not meant to be painful and we use scientific facts to explain why and what you can do to have a positive birth experience.
The Birth Ready Pack is a full comprehensive hypnobirthing and antenatal course and consists of a number of short videos (most being about 2 to 10 minutes long each). You can sit back in your sofa or bed and log-in to your account to watch as many or as few videos as you like per day. This will give you the time to digest the information and prepare at your own pace.
The hypnobirthing element deals with mental preparation for labour and birth. It aims to turn fear and anxiety around childbirth into confidence by explaining how your body works during contractions and by teaching your brain and subconscious to relax during labour.
The antenatal preparation element covers all you need to know for the day of the birth, such as the breathing techniques to use at each stage of labour, what to expect from a vaginal or a caesarean birth, what pain relief options are offered at the hospital or clinic and what are the pros and cons of each option for you and your baby.
We have also included topics that we found interesting and think that you will too, like, how the dad's hormones are affected during the birth of the baby.
