The programme of antenatal education at Kingston Hospital is taught by a team of experienced midwives at the trust: Christina Taylor, Esme Hassard, Hazel Soin-Stanley, Alison Barker and Caroline Wauters.
The first two sessions focus on labour and birth and combine information on this as well as drawing on elements of yoga, such as breathing techniques useful for labour, to help couples maintain a sense of well-being and positive focus for this finely tuned and exciting challenge ahead.
The third session is dedicated to parenting. This is an interactive, evidence-based session that explores bonding and brain development as well as attachment theory. All the midwives who teach this session have undertaken specialist training and are fully qualified to lead the sessions.
