Personalised Antenatal Birth Preparation Course (5* Service)

When can this start?

This private antenatal course would start 6-8 weeks before your due date and will cover the first six weeks of motherhood, after your birth.

It lasts approx 12 weeks of individual (couple) support and mentoring.

What does it include?

This course is a private, one-to-one antenatal course which is a completely personalised birth preparation plan.

Together we will plan your bespoke birthing preparation programme. This to be tailored to your personality, your own circumstances, your aspirations for birth, and addressing your fears and concerns. I will suggest materials you might want to access; videos, reading, relaxations and can prepare individual relaxations and affirmations for your needs.

This programme will include 1:1 antenatal classes (at my home, or yours) and home visits in the 6 weeks after your baby is born. Topics covered can be chosen from the antenatal class content listed in our group antenatal classes, or can be completely tailored according to your needs.

I will be available to you and accessible by phone or video call during this period to listen; for help and advice on any aspect of your pregnancy wellbeing, baby care and breast feeding.

Clients have found the postnatal visits and advice especially valuable, particularly for breastfeeding support in the weeks after birth.

“Jackie was my birth mentor and hypnobirth therapist. She was on hand 6 weeks before and 6 weeks after my birth. I called her “Jackie Alexa” cos I could fire questions at her  anytime of the day. It was really reassuring”. I had 1:1 preparation sessions with her. All the tools she taught me were incredibly helpful. Although long, my birth was a wonderful experience”

My short courses offer people the chance to gain a short, private session for additional support on any topic or concern they may have.  Some people choose to supplement some online learning with a short one-to-one with me. Please just get in touch and I will let you know how I can help.

This is a popular option for people to gain further support on things like:

  • Breastfeeding
  • Second pregnancies
  • Pregnancy with multiples
  • Antenatal refresher class
  • Home birthing
  • Birthing techniques
  • Any topic of your choosing
