DAISY PARENT Monday Evenings (4 week course in person*) Quorn Loughborough

Class Description

Daisy Parent antenatal course is designed for expectant parents and is a split between birth preparation and practical baby care equally; whilst giving you the opportunity to meet other parents to be with similar due dates.

The classes cover a combination of:

  • Antenatal and active birth education and techniques 
  • Birth interventions and support 
  • Breathing, relaxation and hypnobirthing techniques
  • Birth partners role and ways to support you 
  • Birth choices and options 
  • Comprehensive practical baby care education and parentcraft
  • Safety and basic first aid
  • Breastfeeding education and support as well as feeding choices such as bottle and combination feeding. 
  • Baby sleep and routine
  • Baby development
  • Postnatal wellbeing and recovery

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 and safety tips – we’ve got you covered. This course really does cover it all.

The classes allow you to feel prepared not only for birth, but for the arrival and care of baby too. We know that many parents especially first time parents want to attend a class that covers it all whilst meeting new friends and that’s why this course exists.

Will I make friends?

Of course! (If you want to) our courses are a fantastic way to make friends with other parents to be. There is time to talk to others and share experiences as well as the chance to form part of a WhatsApp group before leaving and a postnatal reunion arranged after all of your babies have arrived.
