Beyond Birth Workshops

Are you pregnant?

Do you want to feel educated, informed and empowered when you bring your new baby home?

This unique antenatal workshop prepares you and your partner for the PERIOD AFTER BIRTH, when you take your newborn baby home.

This time, as special and wonderful as it can be, can also be quite daunting and stressful.  The more prepared you are, the better you and your partner will cope whilst also staying connected.

Why not consider the bigger picture – the life long journey of parenthood is still ahead of you.

Whilst most other antenatal classes typically center around birth & the preparation for it and are very much women focused, Nikki recognises that birth is but a single milestone moment within an ongoing evolvement and transformation into a new journey, parenthood.  Nikki focuses on you both as partners on this new & unique journey.  Because once your baby has arrived, the real work begins and there is so little free time to learn ALL of the things!

This is where Nikki can help.

  • Are you interested in attachment parenting, breastfeeding, baby-wearing, and safe co-sleeping?
  • Not sure if you have all of the key information that you need?
  • Do you want to feel supported and knowledgeable as you step into your new life as parents?

Throughout the Beyond Birth Workshop series, we will focus on postpartum care for yourself as a new mama as well as each other as new parents, we will delve into infant connection and care of your new baby whilst also parenting from a conscious parenting perspective.

You will learn about how to lean into conscious and gentle parenting, together.
