Antenatal Classes Perth

Walk Bravely Into the Experience of Being a Mother With Our Antenatal Classes in Perth

Are you pregnant and nervous about the road ahead? We offer antenatal classes in Perth in a warm and inviting environment for moms-to-be so that you feel better prepared for the journey of motherhood. Being equipped with knowledge goes hand in hand with the support women require after giving birth, and for this reason, we provide advice to dads-to-be so that they too feel empowered in their new role.

These are some of the antenatal training interventions you can choose from depending on your needs:

  • Healthy pregnancy class. In this one-and-a-half-hour class, you will gain an understanding of the changes happening to you and your baby. You will also learn to provide an environment where your baby can thrive through nutrition, exercise, and emotional wellbeing. We will help you prepare emotionally and physically for labour, birth, and parenthood.

  • Labour and birth class. This four-hour course provides labour guidance and birth preparation to learn how to recognise the signs and stages of labour. You will also learn about the different options for managing pain and be informed of the common complications and the possible interventions required in those cases, including caesarean birth. The course then progresses to ‘how to care for your newborn’, including safe sleeping recommendations. The course aims to understand the physical and emotional recovery process after birth. We give postpartum exercise guidelines and tips for adjusting to parenthood, including staying connected with your partner.

  • Guide for the expectant partner class. This one-and-a-half-hour class addresses and concerns and questions. We will cover the benefits of interacting with your baby while gaining valuable skills in caring for your newborn. New fathers will learn how to support mum during pregnancy, labour, birth, and breastfeeding. We also look at the effects of the new arrival on your relationship, where we discuss postnatal depression and the financial pressures of starting a family. You may choose to have these classes in a neutral environment where you choose a location where you feel comfortable.

What The Gentle Village Offers Besides Childbirth Classes

No two childbirth experiences are alike, so we offer sessions to suit your unique concerns and advise accordingly. These are some of the value-added services you can expect when you reach out to us:

  • Parental first aid class. When dealing with life after childbirth, it’s always best to be prepared for any eventuality. This hands-on course is essential for parents as it deals with what to do in an emergency. Topics covered include infant and child CPR, burns, bleeding, head injuries, anaphylaxis, asthma, choking, drowning, fevers and febrile convulsion, poisons, bites, and stings.

  • Value for money. Becoming a parent comes with new expenses, some of which you’re not prepared for. We offer affordable care where you won’t have to sacrifice the opportunity to gain vital knowledge because you just don’t have the money to attend class.

  • Collaborative services. We also offer services such as physiotherapy, remedial massage, baby and toddler sleep support.

Why Trust The Gentle Village

We provide an accommodating environment for our clients, where we embrace the notion of ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ by providing the community support that new moms need.
