The First Step: Antenatal Classes

Antenatal classes with a difference!  Big Steps Little Feet Birth Preparation workshops are holistic. The emphasis in this birth preparation  is on the mind body and soul during pregnancy and birth. This is different to other antenatal classes. The programme content combines medical science with emotional and spiritual aspects of birth, motherhood and parenting. This Birth Preparation is not superficial – it is detailed. I combine learning and knowledge to include Active Birth, Holistic and Yoga therapies (including working with breath) and  Spinning babies techniques.

The choice of a group course or individual 1:1 course is personal and each have their own pros and cons.

I am delighted to offer both  bespoke Birth Preparation workshops in the privacy and comfort of your own home and as a group class .

A 1:1 workshop at home is facilitated in one day, usually 10-4pm,  which is intense but fully immerses you in your birth and baby preparation. This gives you the space and time in a very busy world to devote yourselves fully to the knowledge and experiences offered. It is also super convenient for working parents and no late nights required!

It is recommended for both a woman and her birth partner / companion etc to attend. Workshops are facilitated for all expectant parents regardless of gender, coupleship etc.    Complete Birth and Baby Preparation immersion course is a 2 day group antenatal course

Thank you Melanie for such an amazing preparation for birth. You were with us all the way during my labour and birth. Ava was born this morning at 4:06 am. We had a completely active birth and managed the challenges along the way because you had prepared us so well – from breathing to positions and especially CONFIDENCE. The midwives were so impressed with our team work and knowledge! Thank you, Thank you , Thank you!
