Top 3 Classes You Can Take Before Birth

As a feeding expert, qualified birth practitioner and mum of 2, I have done a fair few prep programmes in readiness for labour. Here are my top three recommendations of classes you can take before birth!

Hypnobirthing
I can’t stress just how much I believe hypnobirthing is the ultimate tool to having a birth you’re proud of. It’s the best form of birth preparation, putting you in the driving seat of your own birth - no matter which route you are taking, vaginal or abdominal. Hypnobirthing empowers you, helps you to stay in control, and enables you to make informed decisions along the way.

Pregnancy yoga and pilates
When it comes to yoga, the butterbean yoga classes have everything covered, and can be watched on demand to suit your schedule. Our yoga classes help you to stay active safely during pregnancy, and feel connected to your body. Keep an eye on our website for our pregnancy yoga programme - coming Spring 2023! Pilates classes are also a great way to meet other expecting parents - but make sure the classes you choose are specific to pregnancy. They provide a means of bonding with your baby whilst building strength and stamina for birth.

Antenatal classes
These teach you the essentials of caring for a newborn baby. Everything from feeding to taking their first bath - they’re a great toe in the water! But remember that feeding is a complex matter and most antenatal classes will only cover the basics. So be sure to explore the butterbean platform for in depth, midwife-approved advice which covers everything from breastfeeding positions, feeding with formula, colostrum hand-expression, and so much more!

Perhaps one of these recommendations stands out to you, or maybe you’re ready to dive into all three. Happily, the butterbean platform covers all bases! Our pregnancy yoga course is tailored to your growing bump, and takes you week-by-week through the stages of your pregnancy, teaching you how to move your body safely while staying grounded and prioritising your mental wellbeing. Our ‘Prepare my mind’ antenatal course explores all things hypnobirthing and feeding, empowering you to know your options, feel in control, and prepare for the birth you’ve always hoped for.
