Frequently Asked Questions
Baby and Me Education is an independent childbirth education class. We offer unbiased advice and information about birthing, antenatal, postnatal and breastfeeding with a holistic approach. Our classes are smaller than hospital classes, so couples feel more comfortable, open to ask questions and feel more a part of the whole experience.
Our classes are not linked to any hospital or model of care, so whether you are birthing within a public or private hospital, birthing center, home birth or GP shared care, we offer education, tips and advice that will help you have a positive experience within your whole birthing journey.
Many hospitals now offer hospital run antenatal classes. Due to pressures from hospitals and obstetricians, some parents feel as if these classes focus more on giving information that supports the hospital’s policies and practices, rather than empowering the family. Baby and Me classes shift the emphasis back to you. It’s your body, your family, your experience, and importantly, your baby. By being clear on what you wish for and feeling empowered to ask for what you need, in any circumstance, you can create the birth experience you want. There are many childbirth education services that focus on completely natural home births and water births that are beautiful however you can have a beautiful birth anywhere, any time and in any setting. Just because you have chosen to birth in a hospital should not mean you have to have to become a statistic. Baby and Me will give you the confidence to make the right choices in whatever you choose.
