Refresher Sessions

Back to previous page

 Amaryllis refresher workshops aim to help you prepare for your birth second (and more) time round.  As with Amaryllis antenatal classes, the focus is on your decision-making and equipping you with the information and skills to enable the choices that are right for you.  Groups are small and friendly, with no more than six couples in each group.   Partners are involved in all aspects of the course and special focus is given to their role in labour, childbirth and early parenting.


Course content is flexible but will usually take account of your previous experiences and your hopes for the current birth.  Typically refresher workshops will cover –

· Understanding your previous experiences

· Hopes for next time

· Review of the mechanics and processes of normal labour and childbirth

· Review of positive mental and emotional preparation for labour and childbirth

· Active birth

· Ideas for helping your children accept the new baby

· Ideas for being supported in the early days with a new baby

In addition to the workshop, all couples can arrange a personal birth debrief session, where they can talk through their previous experience and begin to understand what aspects they would like to change and what they would like to repeat.

Please contact us for availability. 

As places are limited and demand is high, we recommend you book early. 

Amaryllis refresher workshops cost £50 per couple.
