Birth Prep Intensives
The Essential Toolkit – Readiness for Labour and Birth
At Know Your Midwife, we know that women require more than standardised antenatal education to prepare for labour and birth.
For some women, having access to their own private midwife is not an available or achievable option. 97% of women in Australia will birth in hospital; most of them will not know their midwife during labour and most will have only received hospital-based antenatal preparation.
This means that women are walking into childbirth not really knowing what to expect. Uninformed and overwhelmed, they look to their care providers for external support, finding themselves unequipped to navigate the intense energy of labour and birth.
This has repercussions, with less than 29% of women in Queensland achieving a Normal Birth. Interventions are on the rise, birth trauma is common, and women are venturing further away from the natural experience of childbirth that is their right.
Don’t be a statistic!
You may not have your own midwife … circumstances may be such that you need or choose to birth in hospital … however, you CAN equip yourself with the KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS and UNDERSTANDING that will give you the best chance to achieve a NORMAL, NATURAL BIRTH … whatever the environment.
Birth Prep Intensives offers you a Base Level Essential Toolkit to take with you into Birth!
Know Your Midwife is known for our exceptional, comprehensive preparation program for women entering into motherhood. Our birth outcomes speak for themselves, with women enraptured with their birth experiences, partners in awe of the process and babies healthy and well.
Know Your Midwife has created the Birth Prep Intensives, for pregnant women who wish to optimize their experience of childbirth and assure the best possible outcomes for themselves and their babies. The program draws on the modalities in which Mary specialises and which are integral to her midwifery care, offering you a fast-tracked pathway of birth preparation.
Birth Prep Intensives is for all pregnant women, including first-time mothers and subsequent pregnancies. It is a pathway of preparation that supports you to access your innate wisdom and knowing as a Woman , your inherent Feminine Power, and a toolkit of deeply embodied skills that you can take into childbirth … knowing that YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED INSIDE YOURSELF.
You will also be provided with Information and Communication Tools to help you navigate your chosen birth environment, including an understanding of the roles of your support team and a breakdown of routine maternity care practices (with evidence) that will inform your decision-making process.
Birth Prep Intensives is offered as a complete package, incorporating all sessions, practices and online content.
