antenatal Birth & Parenthood Classes in Sussex

Jackie Whitford is a renowned NCT teacher, accredited Hypnobirthing teacher & has 40 years in childbirth education.

The Best Preparation Course for You

I am offering the pregnant YOU an individualised preparation for labour, birth and parenthood.

I will tailor a holistic mentoring programme according to your own hopes and aspirations for your personal birth experience.

This personal training will equip you with the strategies, confidence, knowledge and skills you need to achieve the best birth experience for you.

My unique birth preparation course will appeal especially if you are on your second or subsequent pregnancy and want this birth to be different from your first or are feeling anxious about labour, birth or parenthood.

I offer private or group antenatal courses, breastfeeding support, hypnobirthing courses and other labour preparation techniques.  Most importantly, I tailor my courses to suit each individual rather than an out-of-the-box course which most other antenatal classes offer.

Who do I support?

  • All parents-to-be
  • Secondary or subsequent pregnancies
  • Pregnant women with twins & triplets
  • Pregnant women who have suffered traumatic birth experiences
  • Anyone who feels traditional antenatal offerings are not for them

“Hypnobirthing is the latest, trendy and effective programme for many women; it even has Royal approval – but it doesn’t suit everyone.”
