I will be on maternity leave from Autumn 2020 (as our family grows from 4 to 6 in one fell swoop!) after a final term of Daisy Baby classes. I am planning to return to a reduced class schedule from mid-spring 2021.
To keep in touch with class updates – follow me online @daisyfoundationhaywardsheath or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our flagship antenatal class: A comprehensive 6-week workshop series for expectant parents. Daisy Parent is 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 with your new baby.
What is covered in Daisy Parent?
This key step of your continuous perinatal support takes the best elements of traditional antenatal classes and parent preparation classes and wraps all of these together in a powerful workshop experience.
Daisy Parent workshops draw 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.
Our 5 element model covers:
- Active Antenatal Education
- Birth Breathing, Movement & Relaxation
- Parenting Choices – Including Infant Feeding
- Practical Baby Care & Safety
- Baby Calming Techniques
We share unbiased, evidence-based education and facilitate discussions on all parenting options. As no preference is favoured you will have the ability to explore new and old ideas to see what feels right for you and your baby. By learning about all parenting choices you will have the confidence to be able to be flexible and adapt at any given time. As we know, what works for one baby may not work for another – so learning different methods will allow you to be able to adapt your style to meet your changing baby’s needs.
What do I need to know?
Knowing that together you are as prepared as you could possibly be for your baby’s arrival, have a network of friends at the same stage and are ready to become confident parents is the next step on this amazing 1001 day journey of continuous perinatal support to confident parenthood. Workshops are 15 hours in total and are delivered in a series of 6 x 2.5 hour evening sessions in central Haywards Heath.
Who is this workshop for?
Daisy Parent workshops are for expectant mums and their co-parent and are suitable to attend from 30 weeks pregnant right up until baby’s birth. They are adapted to suit all pregnancy-related conditions, birth plans and parenting choices .
