TiP Childbirth and Parenting One-day Super Condensed Sunday Workshop
Sunday from 9am to 4:30pm – only $385per couple. This course covers “everything possible to cover” in just one day and is very popular.
This super condensed version of the 6 week course is a very quick and easy convenient course as it only involves attendance for one day.
It is the most time efficient course available anywhere, covering: Pregnancy, Labour and Birth in the morning, and then Baby care and Parenting during the newborn period, the first twelve weeks, covered very thoroughly in the afternoon.
Brilliantly designed for shift workers, very busy couples, particularly those who are very busy and can’t spare much time at a course.
Pregnant couples coming from a distance – Newcastle, Wollongong, Nepean regions, who desire an early morning drive.
This course is also terrific for couples who are wanting to refresh their knowledge, having already had a baby, and now needing to prepare for their second, third, fourth or subsequent baby.
It’s far more convenient to arrange child care for only one Sunday and so this course suits refreshers quite well.
Course materials made freely available as part of the super-condensed package, as well as unlimited variety of teas and coffees, delicious snacks and full comprehensive course notes.
Places are limited and Julie normally only runs this one day super condensed course once a month or once every two months, so if it’s what you’re after be sure to book in as quickly as you can to secure your position. There are limited places in each course. BYO lunch, be reassured that refrigeration and a microwave are available for your use. Very comfortable air-conditioned venue.
Pre-payment is required to secure your place in any of the courses.
The Condensed Two-Session TiP Transition into Parenthood Course
This excellent “birth and baby care” course is designed for those having their first baby or a subsequent baby. The size of the groups is small to allow for interaction and personalised attention. Julie ensures you are comfortable, feel listened to, respected, included and valued as a group member.
Julie covers many of the aspects that midwives in delivery suites and birth centres would like couples to be aware of, though they often don’t have the time or the resources to convey.
The feedback Julie receives from midwives working in hospitals is that they can really see a difference in the couples who come along to these courses, they are confident, they understand, they work as a team, they are easy and comfortable to work with and mostly have very positive birth outcomes.
Julie enables couples to work in a positive way, as a team with staff in hospitals, by becoming informed of the facilities, as well as their rights and responsibilities during their usually fairly short stay in hospital.
Julie is a highly skilled childbirth educator and in a positive, reassuring, fun and inspiring way she is able to deliver the following topics to you in a way that is both interesting and effective, so when the time comes you feel well prepared and more confident.
Jam packed with lots of practical, worthwhile, creative and informative and empowering ideas. Pregnancy, labour, active birth options. How to recognise labour, what to do in response, great tips for partners to be supportive and helpful, comfort measures to use during labour, partner’s role and what to expect, women’s self-help strategies for labour, how to best use hospital facilities, breathing for labour, effective positions for the woman to use to keep labour normal, techniques for massage, all the right acupressure points to use to overcome issues such as slow labour, ideas to try in a variety of challenging situations in labour, medical interventions and drugs: being informed, Knowing the healthiest and safest pathway through labour, Department of Health charter for health consumers, guidance for birth options and choices, the first hours after the birth, mum-dad-baby bonding and the early breastfeeding experience. Waterbirth benefits – Waterbirth is normal in ALL Public Hospitals in NSW as of 2010. Many important points to boost your confidence and reduce anxiety.
: Everyone (mums and dads-to-be) love this session as well! It contains lots of practicalities of parenting. Our focus is on looking after a little newborn baby during the first 12 weeks in a very positive way. How to avoid Colic. Being able to read the baby’s body language and their variety of cry “signals” helps parents-to-be feel they can trust their intuition and look forward to getting to know their baby.
