The right birth on the day specialised sessions.
To ensure that I can be by your side no matter what you need in relation to your baby’s birth, there are also some specialised sessions in ‘The right birth on the day systemTM should you need them.
The 4 session birthing programme has additional information for Twins and VBACs.
There is also a specialised C-Section Programme.
If you find later on in pregnancy that your baby is breech then there is the option for a breech turn session and/or a breech birth session if required.
Should you find that you are facing induction there is a session to help get labour started and also one to help you prepare for induction if needs be.
For those interested in having a Lotus birth there is also a session for that too.
The Wise Hippo Prenatal Parenting ProgrammeTM (previously called Bond with Baby) as you can see focussing on building emotional intelligence for baby which may have you wondering what the hell is that then?
In the context of this programme it is about understanding the true purpose of our emotions so that we can use them in a beneficial way rather than letting them control us.
We know from medical research that the things that happen to a woman during her pregnancy will have an impact on her baby and in turn her baby’s emotional intelligence.
However, much of the information that is available on this subject is taken out of context and taught really badly, many women are often left feeling really guilty about the choices they are making when pregnant and I am not talking about smoking or the odd glass of vino.
Your life isn’t going to be perfect throughout your pregnancy and if it isn’t going to be perfect then how are you going to prevent the bad stuff from causing your baby emotional harm?
Things are going to happen that make you feel sad, angry, upset and so on and these things will in turn give your baby a bit of an upset too.
Things are going to happen that make you laugh, feel loved, happy and other great wonderful feelings and these things will in turn make your baby feel great too.
The same goes for after they have been born. Great things will happen and shit things will happen.
What you can do for your baby is teach them the best way to handle the good, the bad and the ugly that life throws at us and this is what The Wise Hippo Prenatal Parenting Programme is predominantly all about.
We do this using ‘The B.E.S.T. start formulaTM which stands for Bonding, Emotions, Self-care and Time with baby.
The Wise Hippo programmes are not only about pregnancy and birth.
Our life changing education creates strong, confident parents who inherently trust themselves, and, by using their natural instincts, make choices that are right for themselves and their families.
Following numerous requests The Wise Hippo has lunched The Wise Hippo Early Parenting ProgrammeTM. Using The Positive Parents P.E.P. talk strategyTM. I can continue to support you with your preparation for those first few weeks after birth. The programme will include, Physical nurturing, Emotional resilience and Practical knowledge.
I look forward to being ‘by your side’ for bump, birth and baby.
