Requirements

  • This course is designed for anyone who is having a baby and their partner too. It starts at a basic level and includes a tonne of extra resources to help you do your own ongoing research in a safe way.

Description

This is a full antenatal education course in a box written by a UK Doula.

Initially designed for my Doula clients I realised that I really want this information to be accessible to all expectant families as it's so important and can be a nightmare to filter through the internet to find. So here it is in one place...

You will leave this course with baseline knowledge of so many important subjects and a spring board to do your own research in order to prepare for a positive birth.


What I will not do…

I will NOT promise you a pain free birth (hint: don’t trust the courses that do), I will NOT do all the research for you, I do NOT have all of the answers but I am here to help find them yourself. Because that is what birth preparation should be about: Supporting you to find YOUR OWN WAY!

Resources

Along with all of this information I have built a huge list of resources on my website, including links to articles, videos, books, social media accounts and podcasts. All from trusted evidence based resources.


Community

Join my facebook community group to meet like-minded families working through the course too. Come along to meet new people, ask questions and just read what others have to say.


Accountability

Online learning is fantastic, I really believe so, but one-2-one is next level... So once you have completed this course I encourage you to contact me to book a recap video call where you can ask questions and make sure that you have the information required for you and your individual circumstances.

Or why not book it now, and give yourself a deadline to work to and keep yourself accountable.



I hope you enjoy the course, I would love to hear any feedback that you may have.

Who this course is for:

  • Are you expecting a baby?
  • Are you befuddled by the information that is thrown at you from the moment you wee on the stick?
  • Are you and your partner working on a different level because you are being exposed to ever differing ideas and experiences about birth?
  • Are you fed up of asking Dr Google and never knowing what is trusted information and what is just someone's opinion?
  • This course is for you if you answered YES to any one of the questions above!

I am Sarah Drawwater, also known as The Nostalgic Doula.


I am a Doula, Hypnobirthing teacher and birth photographer. I am actively working supporting families before, during and after the birth of their babies.


I believe passionately about informed choices in birth. To make an informed choice one must be presented with all of the options in an unbiased way. Unfortunately our health case system is not always seen to support this due to pressures and staff shortages.
