Class Description

A comprehensive and practical series of antenatal classes for expectant parents designed to ensure you have all the education, tools and support you could need as you prepare confidently for your upcoming birth and the early days of caring for your new baby.

Our entirely comprehensive Daisy Parent format draws on elements of active birth, hypnobirthing, parentcraft and traditional antenatal classes to create one very powerful combination. From birth plans to massage in labour, informed choice to packing hospital bags and feeding your baby to changing their nappy – we’ve got you covered.

When it comes to preparing for your baby’s birth and caring for their needs in the early days, any number of emotions can overwhelm us. There are so many confusing guides, check lists, shopping lists, experts and education that it can be hard to know where to start, let alone be on the same page with your partner! Daisy Parent helps you and your partner not only prepare for a confident birth but prepare for confident parenting in the early days of caring for your newborn baby. This key step of your continuous perinatal support takes the best elements of traditional antenatal classes and wraps all of these together in a powerful workshop experience that allows you the confidence that comes from realising you can do this together.

Daisy Parent workshops are for all those who are pregnant along with their co-parent, are suitable to attend from around 30 weeks pregnant right up until baby’s birth, and are adapted to suit all pregnancy related conditions, birth plans and parenting choices with ease.
