Post Partum Care Workshop
Earthway Parenting’s online eCourse is based on the successful workshops developed and facilitated by Nikki Smith, a Registered Nurse and a Qualified Child and Family Nurse. The online Post Partum Care eCourse is an antenatal online class all about bringing your new baby home. It has been developed with new parents in mind to help prepare you by delving into breastfeeding, safe co-sleeping, infant massage, hormonal shifts in the initial weeks, mindfulness, baby wearing and SO much more!
This is exactly what every pregnant family needs to know! Download the eCourse now while you are expecting and do it again once your little one arrives! Nikki’s intention is to inform as well as empower parents to trust their own innate instincts, to support parents in feeling confident in their own unique parenting journey, & to educate parents on Post Partum Care & why it’s an essential part of your conscious parenting journey. This eCourse is filled with things that Nikki had wished she’d known before her first daughter arrived!

’I loved it! I am SO glad Josh & I did the workshop, I had no idea there was so much that goes into Breastfeeding! I feel so much more confident & comfortable going into our parenting journey. Your workshop is real & hearing your personal experiences really made me feel like we could connect on a personal level. One of the biggest things I actually took away was… Read more “Tegan King”
This workshop was SO informative but not overloaded- it’s refreshing! Each week I started to implement some or maybe one of the strategies discussed with my toddler. We now don’t rush things like getting in the car. Sometimes I would have just sat with him whilst he played and now I play for a good 10-20 minute period of time where I’m INTO his game! I am SO impressed… Read more “Maja Novakovic”
The best thing I could have done to prepare for our new baby. I feel so much more prepared in so many ways, feeding, settling, carrying and comforting mostly. I love that it involved my husband so much and it allowed us to bond and connect and opened conversations about parenting and the post partum period. Thank you SO much, I highly recommend!
I had a lot of fun and I was always engaged in every class. The information we received and that was covered was great. I really appreciate that this course was available and feel fantastic now about moving into parenthood. I would recommend this course to everyone!!
Fantastic to connect with other ‘expecting parents’ and share in their thoughts, expectations, questions and experience going into this process. I also found it fantastic for guys and how to support both parents and their relationship going into mother and fatherhood. I learnt so much about wrapping/wearing my baby and how to be involved in conscious parenting, as well as being a more present mum and partner. I loved… Read more “Taryn Vinson”
Great to learn about tips and tricks to make parenting less stressful ahead of time. Also really helps to be more informed about what to expect during the first few months once the baby gets home.
Calming and motivating! I feel calmer in not putting so much pressure on myself to be the ‘perfect parent,’ but to be more present and in tune with my toddler. A conversation regarding the type of parent I want to be (or what my children see me as) has really stuck with me. When I find myself in a stressful situation now with my toddler, I ask myself “what type of… Read more “Siobhan Foster”
Nikki, you’re such a beautiful writer. So full of heart and wisdom. Thank you for for your honest account of what parenting can be like. We here at Baby Berry Collective look forward to your feature articles and hang off every word you write! We love your tips and ideas for how to ensure we’re the best parents we can be. A truly gorgeous person inside and out. Thank… Read more “Lucy Green”
This course is unmissable for parents-to-be who seek to be informed, empowered and excited about their journey into parenthood. Invaluable knowledge and experience are shared with a real focus on the needs of the group as well as covering a host of important topics. My husband and I looked forward to every class and he felt valued and included in the process which was so important for us. Nikki… Read more “Carla Versitano”
Having a third party explaining things to both of us was more useful/helpful thank just one of us telling the other. It helped us as a couple start planning what we’d like to happen going forward.
Nikki Smith of Earthway Parenting is an absolute blessing to have walk with you both in pregnancy and after birth. Nikki has all the credentials and skills of a medical-based background which pairs beautifully with a truly nurturing, heart-centred approach to birth and parenting. It’s a rare combination and one that is holistic, practical and well-rounded. The support and wisdom Nikki has offered both my husband and myself throughout… Read more “Carla Versitano”
I feel more prepared. More relaxed and more informed.
I feel so much more confident about the journey ahead. I feel at ease and relaxed. This workshop was ideal for myself to take on-board the information provided in the workshop.
Much more informed and more excited about the idea of motherhood. I really enjoyed the experience. Nikki made us feel so comfortable, it was a great group and everyone sharing was fantastic.
I loved all of our discussions and handouts each week to go home and reflect. I felt good. A lot of tips to go home with and start implementing with my own children. I felt like I was on the right track to parenting, I was implementing a lot of the things discussed but it gave me more information to then deepen this at home.
Being a first-time mum I wanted a relaxed introduction to becoming a parent. Nikki’s class was warm, inviting and informative. She made it comfortable for both my husband & myself. It’s a class that will suit & benefit anyone. Both my husband and I would definitely recommend attending Nikki’s classes xx thanks Nikki The Kirby’s
I have been meaning to write this for a few weeks but have been busy with my newborn babe and wanted to make sure that when I said THANK YOU to Nikki it was everything I had wanted to say. I am already a mum to an 11 year old, so when I was pregnant with this little one I felt like I had it mostly under control. Boy… Read more “Sharni Sinclair”
Interactive, hands on, inspiring and very informative. Your workshop was very involved, supportive and very welcoming. You have a very friendly, unopinionated approach and I already look forward to seeing you again at your toddler workshop in a few years! Thank you and I can’t wait to recommend you to friends when they are expecting!
If there is ever a course that parents should take, this is the One! As First time parents we were entering the unknown. However after completing this course we are now knowledgeable and confident in our journey ahead. This course differs from others as it has a very open relaxed approach and most importantly it covers postpartum, an area not often spoken about, but so important. Thank you Nikki… Read more “Michelle Angelides”
I am so glad that we found you! I feel really well equipped to understand and be able to deal with what life is about to throw at us in two weeks time! I feel so much more relaxed and no longer anxious because I know what to expect and have learned skills that I know will be invaluable once bubs arrives. Seriously one of THE best decisions we… Read more “Daniella Steer”
Peaceful and logical. Great to have someone that speaks from experience and professionally. I feel that we are now so far ahead emotionally, physically and ready for this little ball of wonder to enter our lives!
Great opportunity to step away from the daily grind to invest some time in preparing for parenthood. Helped me mentally process what is about to happen 🙂
I feel more confident to keep on working on my parenting and helping my kids with their emotions. It has also helped me to keep myself calm. I have gained a greater awareness of how I choose to deal with tantrums and big emotions. I am much more calm and empathetic.
The best pre-parenting course I think I could have ever done. Absolutely amazing. I have learnt so much from Nikki and feel grateful to have been able to go. Thank you 🙂

Nikki is the real deal – down to earth, genuine, approachable and so knowledgeable about conscious and connected parenting. She walks the talk but doesn’t pretend to be perfect. I have enjoyed all of our interactions and correspondence, and value her advice.
A great amount of information. The comfortable environment made it easy to ask anything and cover everything. Thoroughly enjoyed the flow of conversation among the group. You’ve found your calling Nikki!!
Very helpful, parenting is not easy, (Nikki was) helpful with techniques to help.
I felt like the information was shared in a really genuine, caring and informed manner. I learned so much and now have more faith in both my own capabilities and inherent abilities, and that of my partner. I have more confidence to back myself and my instincts.
It’s a warm inviting workshop, I felt Nikki is open and honest. She listens and supports all choices. It helped me feel normal to connect with other mums and share stories. I felt a lot better about becoming a mummy.
Nikki is all about empowering parents to trust their instincts, their bodies, and their baby’s cues. To be told that it’s ok (and preferrable) to go with the flow each day, and listen to your heart as a parent is truly refreshing, especially when there are so many books, well meaning friends and relatives, and websites that want to tell you otherwise. I was fortunate enough to attend one… Read more “Grace Mac”
I feel so much more confident in being able to practice gentle parenting and better equipped to take on toddler challenges without losing it! A great safe space to discuss parenting issues. Nikki was really informative, relatable & easy to talk to 🙂
Nikki, I’m so grateful that my husband and i were able to participate in this incredible series of workshops. Thanks to you, we both feel a sense of calm and preparedness for the journey ahead. The information you have shared is so invaluable to anyone who is preparing to become a parent. Truly fantastic stuff! We looked forward to the classes every week!

We found our consultation informative, inspiring with great information & amazing tips. We feel more positive about enjoying being parents. After one session we have found it to be quite inspiring, positive, encouraging and hopeful. Now we have a realistic approach.
I found the workshop to be very informative. After feeling a little anxious and unprepared about having a baby. I am much more confident and excited to undergo this journey.
