Don’t dread those first few weeks of confusion and sleep deprivation, be prepared!
Feel calm, confident and excited about this gentle and enjoyable time with your new family.
Prepare with Postnatal Education Classes.

Consider the Postnatal period with your baby. We see beautiful cuddles, with a settled newborn who is totally adorable sleeping. We imagine a mum who is seen to have it all together, hair up, out of her pyjamas, house tidy. However, for the majority of us, this isn’t the case. For many mothers they may have little support, with growing trends towards FIFO families and many families living away from grandparents and family. How much research have you done into what having a newborn is like? Or have you been busy focusing on the important and immediate pregnancy and birth concerns first? What experience have you had with babies in your life? Do you have a realistic idea of what this is really going to look like?

So how do Postnatal Education Classes help?

  • Increased understanding of what is going on with your baby at different stages
  • Better relationship with baby
  • Better relationship with others especially partner
  • More able to accept and rely on your own intuition and gut
  • Look at your baby as an individual in the same way you are and go forward appropriately

Postnatal classes are designed to help mummies postnatally with face to face classes in Bellbowrie. Designed to enable mums to not only survive but to enjoy the first 6 weeks of motherhood.

You will learn about the important topics of this time, the stuff you want to know about, breastfeeding, sleeping and adapting to  motherhood. PostBirth Education classes are personalised to each mum and bub attending class so each class is unique.

PostBirth classes are 3 hrs.

PostBirth Education Classes are held every second month.

Each class costs $100/couple with private classes $180/couple.

I encourage you to bring your little one along and older children.

Snacks, Tea and Coffee Provided after the class.

These Postnatal Education classes are ideal for mums in the final weeks of pregnancy or the first few weeks postpartum.

Development in the
First 6 Months


Statistics:
  • The last 50 years the average fertility rate has dropped from 3.5 to just less than 2 children. For numerous reasons we are having less children so this time to enjoy them while they are little is so important!
  • The last 10 years families where both parents work has increased by 10%, with a 6% decrease in stay at home mums. Therefore for most of us this precious postbirth period is short lived so you want to enjoy it.
  • In 2005 11% of mothers had gone back to work by 3 mths, 22% by 6 months and 44% by 12mths
  • The average overall leave amount is 32 weeks (approximately 7.5mths). That just goes to show that depending on whether you have to go back to work (which many of us do) and what those reasons are you may only have a limited time with just you baby and you, before the it becomes more of a juggling act.
