Birth & Early Parenting education
Hayley is so knowledgeable and passionate about all things pregnancy & birth. Her seminar last night was so informative and presented in an understandable and non intimidating way, and she has such a lovely manner. PS Oh boy, do I wish I had you around when I was having my son - I would have done things very differently!
Birth is powerful AND SO ARE YOU!
The birth of your baby presents you with the most profound learning experience of your life - as a person, partner and new parent. The aim of my classes is to help you approach your baby's birth with trust and confidence in your body and ability. My classes aim to give you the knowledge to make informed decisions regarding your care plus an insight into what birth may look and feel like
Having been a birth worker in several hospitals in the metro area, and also running hospital based childbirth education classes, my workshops also cover many of the practical aspects of birthing within these settings
As a passionate advocate for Homebirth (and having had two of my babies at Home through both CMP and a Private Midwife), my classes can be tailored to your specific needs - wherever and however you plan to birth your new baby
