The antenatal course is a wonderful preparation for the parenting workshop, providing you with a strong foundation in mindfulness practice and introducing you to some of the core tenets of effective parenting.

This course is unique in that it is designed and facilitated by a psychologist. Dr Adrienne Brown specialises in perinatal psychology and mindfulness and, a mother of two herself, is committed to providing people with the right support during this exciting yet uncertain and often challenging time.

By attending this course you will learn all you need to know about childbirth and more!

Our midwife will teach you about

  • The stages of childbirth
  • Birth positions
  • Birth partner support
  • Breastfeeding

Adrienne will teach you skills to

  • Sit with uncertainty
  • Ground, focus and conserve energy in childbirth
  • Enable relaxation and softening during labour
  • Manage labour pain
  • Bond with your baby during pregnancy
  • Manage stress, fatigue, anxiety and fear
  • Cope with unmet expectations
