It is so exciting to be pregnant and yet hugely overwhelming all at once! This free antenatal class in Frome aims to give you a helping in hand in knowing how to start preparing for birth.
Perfect for first-time parents, but also second-timers (or third!) who want to do it differently (and better) this time around; this class covers all the basics so you know what to do next!
It is aimed for the earlier stages in your pregnancy as a starting point to cut through the overwhelm and give you a really clear road-map of what to do to help prepare for birth.
As a result of the class, you will feel really informed, knowledgeable and excited about your birth, and empowered to go forth confidently in your birth preparation journey.
What does the antenatal class cover?
- What choices you have in terms of where and how you birth your baby
- What different antenatal classes cover and whether they are what you are looking for (e,g, NHS, active birth, hypnobirthing, NCT)
- What dads can do to get involved
- Q&A – ask anything at all about pregnancy, labour & birth (there is no such thing as a silly question)
In addition to this, you will get a copy of my BIRTH PREPARATION ROADMAP so you have a clear plan of what to do after the antenatal class to help you prepare for an awesome birth!
We have come away feeling really excited about our forthcoming labour and birth after this fantastic workshop!”Bex & Ben
Who it is for…
This antenatal class in Frome is for parents who are feeling a bit overhwelmed around the fact that they are going to actually have to go through labour and birth and just feel as if you know nothing at all about what to expect or how to prepare.
You have maybe started doing some research already and have felt swamped by masses of inconsistent information online using unfamiliar words and jargon.
What you really want is just to know where to start, what your options are and where to find unbiased and useful information.
You want to be able to ask all the silly questions that have been going through your head but have no-one to ask.
You want to have a clear idea about what you want so you can start to prepare for it.
You want to feel confident about the questions you have, and knowledgeable about how to get them answered.
But most of all you want to feel excited and prepared!
I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed the Birthzang class and found it enlightening, informative and empowering. As a husband, I thought long and hard on whether we should attend such classes. I was not very knowledgable about birth (apart from what I saw on TV).
I couldn’t understand why anyone would want to go through the trauma, worry and stress of childbirth over and over again! Having been on the class, so many of my questions have been answered and I feel so much more capable and part of the process now.
Thank you, Eleanor, for a great day. Highly recommended (particularly for Dads).Barry

You’ve given us lots of tools and what to expect from each stage and the NCT didn’t give us that.
We learned so much from the workshop and very confident now.
We completely changed our attitude from thinking it is someone else’s job, to knowing this is our responsibility and it is completely up to us how to go about it. Our views have changed 100%.Olga & Simon

Your classes were so helpful – we really knew very little about the process of labour, and nothing at all about how to handle it.
We went into the labour feeling really confident and relaxed. I found the range of positions you took us through really useful, and used several of them.
Our midwife commented on how happy and relaxed we were and even said that we were making her feel relaxed!Jess & James
There is a lot of information covered in what seems a short amount of time but Eleanor has constructed her course beautifully so all the information can be digested easily.
My partner and I booked Eleanor for our second child, I was amazed at how much new information Eleanor taught that we hadn’t been told with our first.
I would highly recommend Birthzang to any couple wanting to gain valuable information leading up to the birth of their baby.
Thank you Eleanor!Ian & Sarah
This is definitely a course for a couple to attend as it demystifies birth, particularly for partners. It covers every aspect of birthing and all the variables and circumstances.
It also takes away any fear I came away feeling like I can really do this!Cathy

I founded Birthzang after having an incredible birth experience that enlightened me that with the right tools and skills at her fingertips, any woman can have a positive birth experience.
I discovered my passion for providing parents with practical and non-fluffy information about how to cope with pregnancy, labour, birth, and parenthood.
