    For many women, birth is a happy and fulfilling experience. Often however, there are unanswered questions, feelings of trauma, pain, guilt, anger and sadness that don't disappear with time. This Birth Debrief aims to acknowledge and address these feelings in a supportive environment where mums are able to share their experiences, make sense of what happened, make peace, and move on. Birth trauma is real and can happen to anyone, leaving physical and mental scars. This small group course (three sessions) will help you understand and come to terms with your birth experience, allowing you to let go and look ahead. 

    If the class is fully booked, please still register for the waiting list so our speaker knows the need for the course and we can get in touch with the next dates.


    Price includes book used on the course.


    Please note this course is best suited for mums who have older babies or children that can be left at home with family.

    During this talk you’ll find out what happens to your child’s sleep from the age of 3 months on. We’ll put some of the common sleep myths to bed and discuss when you should expect your baby to sleep through the night.

    I’ll also give you my seven most important sleep tips to help your baby sleep well. You’ll learn about sleep props and how they affect sleep, the best way to run a bedtime routine, the timing of those daytime schedules, and how to avoid overtiredness.
