Positive Birth Jersey is excited to offer the latest postnatal preparation course - The Positive Birth Jersey Mindful Breastfeeding, Postnatal and Parenthood Preparation programme! Preparing for life with a new little baby can be exciting, daunting and a little overwhelming - but our course is here to help. This 3.5 hour course is the perfect 'add-on' to your Hypnobirthing course, or suitable as a stand alone course too. Delivered by qualified Mindful Breastfeeding Practitioners, feel confident and prepared as you discover what to expect in the early days with a newborn!
Breastfeeding in-depth: normal newborn feeding behaviour, effective positioning and attachment, recognising a 'good latch', commonly encountered breastfeeding issues and the importance of hormones during breastfeeding.
Basic newborn care, including: nappy changing, bathing and swaddling.
Normal newborn behaviour, including: baby's cues and signals, sleep, feeding and growth spurts.
Rewriting your thought processes about parenthood: challenging what society says about how we should be parenting! What's right for YOU and your baby? Includes self-care, support for new families and relaxation/mindfulness techniques for early parenthood. We will look at ways you can connect more deeply with your new baby.
The Fourth Trimester: the trimester that no one tells you about! What to expect both physically and emotionally during the first few weeks of parenthood.
Who can do the course?
This course is suitable for everyone - whether you are already signed up to a Positive Birth Jersey Hypnobirthing course or not. Take the opportunity to meet other like-minded parents and gain a greater depth of knowledge about life after birth! You can attend the course as a couple, or on your own - we don't mind!
When should I do the course?
You can take this course at any stage during your pregnancy, in order to prepare for parenthood!
This 3.5 hour course is usually held every other month.
