Our professionally-led, evidence-based antenatal course is useful, practical and certainly not fluffy! 4B antenatal enables you to make independent, realistic and well-informed choices about your bump, baby and well-being.
Our 4B program is rolled out in four sessions to parenting couples over a 16 week period of your pregnancy and each session will cover one of the 4Bs: Bump, Baby, Being and Belonging.
We are not here to replace your routine midwifery care, but our desire is to add depth and enhance it, giving you an unbiased, informative and balanced approach. In our BUMP session we cover a high-level overview of what we believe to be the most important take-away antenatal information you need to know for your pregnancy journey.
Our BABY session prepares you for the arrival of that all-important little person! We will cover the impending labour, what to pack and what to expect in the early days postnatally including bathing and caring for your newborn baby. No questions are silly or weird so please know this is a safe place in which we can discuss anything that you might find helpful and we will endeavour to make these teaching sessions as fun and interactive as possible.
We believe that our BEING session really sets us apart from the usual approach to antenatal care. Having a baby changes everything. There are no two ways about it! It can put enormous pressure on your relationship with each other, your relationship with extended family members and even your friends. We cover topics like keeping strong relationships through our interactive 2B Relationship PROS, identifying what makes you tick as an individual. This is to help support you through the many changes to your physical and mental health and well-being during this time of change.
We discuss with you some really good tips, advice and practical knowledge to get you prepared for the rollercoaster journey ahead!
Finally, we explore the gateway to the myLifePool network through our unique BELONGING session. We will share with you just how you can be part of this community, access all the benefits and get the best out of this new and exciting chapter in your lives. As an independent supplier of antenatal care, we also signpost you to many of our preferred partners, service providers and local businesses who have joined with us to give you an all-inclusive, cohesive and supportive environment in which to enhance your lifelong parenting journey. Whether it be maternity bra fittings, date nights out, dad meet ups, breastfeeding advice, pregnancy relaxation, mum & baby brunches, weaning, family nutrition or back to work worries and concerns – we have it all covered!
