If you’re a pregnant mum who’s either reached the end of her first trimester or gone beyond and are starting to wonder where you can get the best birth preparation and antenatal advice, our sister site Baby Bumps has the pregnancy classes and expertise you’re looking for.

Baby Bumps understands how challenging it can be to know which courses to choose to ensure your valuable time and money are well spent; because making the right choices now, means you’ll have plenty of time to absorb and familiarise yourself with the powerful, positive, and practical content that will serve you well on the day.

During pregnancy your body goes through incredibly immense changes, and so what mothers-to-be really want is to discover the best guidance that will help them prepare their body for labour and birth.

Jackie Kietz, Founder of Baby Bumps, is a NCT and hypnobirthing practitioner and delivers a variety of online, digital and face to face hypnobirthing courses which have proven invaluable for the hundreds of happy parents now taught over the years.

Jackie is author of the new Pinter & Martin book “Let’s talk about preparing for your baby’s birth” which is an ‘antenatal course in a book’. In the book Jackie discusses labour and birth in the way that it would be covered at face-to-face birth preparation classes. From how to tell whether you’re really in labour, to choosing where and how to give birth and communicating your wishes to healthcare staff, the book is packed with essential information for new parents. As well as practical details, there are also 10 audios and suggestions for ways to relax using hypnobirthing and breathing techniques to help you think positively about your upcoming birth. As a useful reminder of what s covered in a course, or as a substitute if you don’t want to or can’t attend classes in person, this friendly, easy to follow and reassuring book is invaluable for anyone expecting a baby. This book is included in all hypnobirthing courses. It’s also available directly from the publishers Pinter & Martin, from Amazon.co.uk (printKindle and audio book), or with free worldwide delivery from The Book Depository or Wordery.
