Gold Coast Private Maternity takes a holistic approach to childbirth and offers a variety of options for learning. In addition to antenatal classes, there are opportunities to learn from preconception to birth and beyond with classes in mindfulness, breastfeeding, first aid for parents and yoga. Mothers can arrange classes through our experienced midwives who will also be available to discuss concerns, refer to services, help with anxiety issues and facilitate visits to the ward.
Our Birth and Beyond antenatal classes are offered to women starting at 28 weeks and held every Tuesday from 6.30pm to 8.30pm over a five-week period.
Alternatively, we offer a weekend class which runs on a Saturday and Sunday from 9.00am to 1.00pm. The aim of the classes is to recognise the needs of mothers and families, to identify support networks and educate parents-to-be about pregnancy, childbirth and parenting.
Week 1 – Pregnancy and process of birth
Week 2 – Pain relief and induction of labour
Week 3 – Assisted birth and caesarian section
Week 4 and 5 – Parenting the first few weeks
Please note: A general tour of the maternity unit is included in the antenatal classes.
