Private Antenatal Classes

Cost:  Midweek private class $600*   Weekend Saturday $800* & Sunday $1000*

Not everyone has the time to attend large groups of childbirth classes over 4-6 weeks. Parents2b therefore offers a unique service of providing private, practical, unbiased, evidence based and personalised antenatal education.

Parents2b classes cover all aspects of pregnancy including labour and delivery, pain relief options, possible interventions, caesarean sections, breastfeeding and early parenting and settling/routines.

Labour is an amazing journey into the unknown. But remember, it is 1 day!  It is just as important to focus on what awaits you at the end of your long, hard journey, your baby and parenthood!

PLEASE book your class by week 14 of your pregnancy.

The perfect time to do a class is around 30-34 weeks.

About Michelle: My personal birth and parenting experiences are vast. They include a vaginal delivery and two caesarean sections. As a result, I strongly believe that individual birthing and parenting options / choice is paramount. I aim to support, respect and inform parents on their birthing and parenting choices – no matter what that may be. Please click on the ‘about me’ to read more about my personal birth experiences.

I met Helen Green in 2003 after the birth of my second child, when I reached out for assistance with my own breastfeeding journey.  Helen and I have worked together ever since 2003 supporting women and their families in their parenting journey.

In 2003 Helen was appointed Lactation Consultant for the Maternity Unit Gold Coast Hospital and continued in the role until 2009 when her role expanded to include managing the Maternity Home Visiting team and the Lactation Consultant team.

Helen ceased hospital work at the Gold Coast University Hospital in Feb 2022, to allow her an increased focus on the provision of lactation support to the wider Gold Coast.

She have continued providing services to families on the Gold Coast since 1995 through the Gold Coast Breastfeeding Centre. During this time, Helen has continued to worked collaboratively with private practising Paediatricians and Obstetricians and other Health Professionals to support mothers and babies to achieve their goals.
