Hi, I’m Louise. I am a Senior Registered Midwife and the face behind Instagrams Honest Midwife.
I have designed this antenatal course to give you comprehensive information so that you both feel fully prepared for the arrival of your baby. I have written the rule book to give you honest and realistic content which is evidence based and reflects my experience as a labour ward midwife.
Alongside learning about the natural birth I will discuss more complex deliveries, why they may occur and you really will be OK, however your baby makes its entrance.
I hope you enjoy the course and that you will join me on the next modules which discuss Infant Feeding (both formula and breastfeeding), Practical Parenting and First Aid.
Congratulations on your pregnancy!
