Practical Preparing for Parenthood Survival Class devised by Dr Carol Cooper
Who? This basic entry level seminar is suitable for expectant parents, interested grandparents & carers, and health professionals. Open to all.
What? This is a two hour session which will give practical information to expectant parents of multiples. The session will cover the prenatal period and provide you with practical tips on how to prepare for your new arrivals and how to cope during the first few days and weeks.
Topics include: your health and making the most of appointments, pregnancy and birth, bonding, organising support, planning ahead including equipment, looking after yourself, hospital and practical family life (e.g. carrying babies, crying etc). We are unable to provide any medical advice at the Seminars.
Attendees will receive the new Tamba 'Preparing for Parenthood' Booklet' (or the Breastfeeding or Healthy Multiple Pregnancy Guide if you have already received this booklet) and copies of the slides to take away.
