If your working hours or lifestyle make it difficult to attend group classes, or you are looking for a more bespoke experience, then private classes may be a good option for you.
Because the classes are 1:1 the content can be tailored much more to your own requirements, so for example if you are planning a cesarean or a homebirth we can structure the course around your needs and interests. The best time to start classes is around 20 weeks but it is never too late, I have even taught couples at 39 weeks!
Private classes take place in your home or other location of your choosing. Some couples choose to partner up with friends who are also expecting, if that's the case then I am happy to offer a discount to the hosting couple. I travel anywhere up to 45 minutes drive from my home.
The course content is around 10-12 teaching hours. As with the group classes, this is a complete antenatal preparation programme. See here for details of what is covered.
The course can be configured in a number of different ways but I normally suggest either two Saturdays or three evenings.
The fee for private classes is £350. This includes comprehensive course notes. relaxation audio, and a birth preparation goody bag.
