Our private class options are the ideal choice for those seeking a truly personalised approach to their childbirth preparation. Each session is tailored your own individual needs and schedule. The content is evidence-based, modern and interactive.
Geelong Born Birth Preparation sessions are geared towards parents expecting their first baby, however anyone wanting to gain further knowledge and tools will benefit greatly. Weekday, weekend and evening times are available.
As these sessions are usually “delivered” in your own home, the ideal location for this is a comfortable space such as your living room. An extension cord, provided by Geelong Born, will then be run from our laptop to your television (most televisions will have this HDMI outlet). The class slides and videos will then be displayed on a larger screen and you can then relax comfortably on your sofa!
We recommend your class/classes take place any time from 24-35 weeks gestation.
This program has been created by Rosie specifically for Geelong Born. There is no charge for travel within a 30km radius of Geelong.
Prefer not to do it in your own home? No sweat! There is the option of arranging a time to do this in-house at Bump and Bub Health Hub in Geelong OR at The Hermosa Co in Torquay. *Additional fee for venue hire applies.
UNIT ONE The Birthing Process

Can partners be involved in these classes?? Absolutely! These days partners play more of a role in the labouring process, so it makes sense that they attend our classes too.
Birth partners are encouraged to be present for this. In saying that, if mums want to go solo then that’s fine too.
