Frequently Asked Questions
How long will it take me to complete the course?
The course content is around 11 hours in total. You will receive access to one video a week over 8 weeks, on a Wednesday. This gives you the week and weekend to watch the content in your own time. On the following Monday we will have a LIVE 1 Hour Question and Answer session with our registered Midwife, to answer any questions you have from the week's class. This video will be available to watch later if you miss the live session. If you don't have 8 weeks to complete the course, or would prefer to do it all in one sitting, we have the option to sign up to the course content on its own, minus the online support community and midwife question and answer sessions.
How long do I have access to the content?
The course runs for 8 weeks, thereafter you will be given a new login to access all the content in one place for 12 months.
Who is this course suitable for?
The course is perfect for everyone! Whether you are a first time mum looking for an easier way to access your childbirth education - a second, third, or even fifth time mum who is looking for a refresher but can't find the time to get out to classes - or even a dad-to-be looking for ways to support your partner into parenthood and beyond.
I'm in my third trimester, is it too late for me to join?
We believe holistic antenatal education should be available to everyone, and there is no reason why you should miss out! If you don't think you will have time for the duration of the 8 week course, we have the course content available minus the online support group and bonus content. This means you can binge watch it all in a whole day if you wanted to!
Is this only for people interested in natural childbirth and 'natural' parenting?
While we take a holistic approach to childbirth and parenting, we do not exclude anyone for their informed decisions around any choice. We encourage parents to do their research, and feel empowered in their journey. That means supporting any decision you make and providing you evidence-based information and education to assist you in your choices. Your journey, is your journey! We are just here to encourage, empower and support you.
Does it matter if I am having a hospital birth, or home birth?
No matter where you choose to give birth, this course will provide you with the tools and information to make informed choices and feel empowered in your pregnancy and childbirth journey. You will learn important information about eating right in pregnancy, preparing your body for birth and breastfeeding, helpful positions for labour, and much more. By arming yourself with knowledge, you are giving yourself the best start to the biggest adventure of your life. You are the driver, we are just giving you the road-map!
I live internationally, can I still take the course?
Yes! We want to bring New Zealand's world leading maternity education system to women all around the world. We are passionate about women, and their families, receiving this vital information to arm them on their journey to raising happy, heart-centred children and feeling confident in their decisions. From the comfort of your own home you can learn from a New Zealand registered Midwife providing an evidence based module of education.
