'Breastfeeding Calm' classes-
Colostrum harvesting and breastfeeding

Do you want to increase your chance of breastfeeding, or know what to do if things get tricky?
Would you like to learn about ‘colostrum harvesting’ to increase your baby’s chance of receiving breastmilk? 
Scotland has one of the lowest rates of breastfeeding in the world so I have created a practical class to increase your chance of success.
You will learn:
  • What colostrum harvesting (antenatal hand expressing) is, why it is so amazing and how to do it.
  • Why positioning and attachment is so important 
  • An easy to follow 5 step position and attachment protocol
  • What breastfeeding problems can happen, how to spot them, prevent them and what to do about them
  • How to hand expressing expressing
  • What equipment you will need
  • How partners can support the process 
  • How and when to introduce a bottle
Using my experience as a midwife to support hundreds of new parents to breastfeed, and having run a very successful NHS breast-feeding support group, I combine my love of teaching in this class to get you as ready as you ever can be to breastfeed and provide your baby with human milk. 
There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end. You can attend in pregnancy or postnatally with baby in arms.  Partner are very welcomed and encourage to attend this class.

'Birth Calm' classes-
Pregnancy mindset, support and relaxation

  • Do you find it hard to sleep well in pregnancy? 
  • Do you have questions you’re not sure who to ask?
  • Do you want to get informed about giving birth and get in the right mindset?
  • Do you feel isolated in pregnancy? 
  • Do you want researched based and safe guidance from a midwife?
Community and support are so important in pregnancy so this is a space to connect with other pregnant woman in the same situation as you, share and give yourself a confidence boost.
You’ll have the opportunity to ask me; midwife, Hypnobirthing, meditation teacher & therapist anything you’re concerned about, safe in the knowledge you’ll get a researched based & safe response. We close the class with a deeply calming guided hypnosis and relaxation session to give you an amazing deep sleep..
Because this class is held via Zoom you don’t need to do the journey home after class but can fall straight to sleep afterward, perfect as the autumn nights draw in. To create a safe space, this class is solely for mums-to-be.

The comfort of your own home over Zoom

"I thought it was a really fab class – Gemma was incredibly warm and knowledgeable whilst encouraging questions. It was really lovely to be tucked up all cosy at home and be able to just put the laptop down and fall asleep."
"It was just wonderful. I had been feeling particularly stressed all day and hadn’t slept well the previous evening. It was such a great idea to be able to get straight into bed and take part in the session. It left me feeling so calm and enabled me to have the best nights sleep I have had in ages. I still felt the effects the next morning and was able to approach the day in a more positive and relaxed manner.I really appreciated the time of the class at 8:30. Earlier classes or during the day don’t work for me as have a 4 year old.’"
Claire Morgan
"A wonderful opportunity to share pregnancy woes with like minded mums to be in a very isolating time. Gemma was very supportive and comforting and the relaxation was exactly what I needed thanks."

A healthier and deeper sleep is a step away.
