Breastfeeding Calm Workshops

Essential breastfeeding support and colostrum harvesting

Do you want to increase your chance of successfully breastfeeding?

Have you heard about the many benefits of ‘colostrum harvesting’?

I’ve helped hundreds of women to successfully enjoy breastfeeding. My teaching approach is based on years of experience as an NHS midwife and antenatal educator managing a breast-feeding support group.

Breastfeeding is a skill! Get support and practical advice for success.

Scotland has one of the lowest rates of breastfeeding in the world. I want to help change this! These bi-weekly ‘breastfeeding calm’ workshops have been created for you to attend during pregnancy as well as postnatally, with baby in arms, to ensure that you and your baby get the best possible start.

You are much more likely to succeed if you have the right information, support and practical advice.

You will learn about:

  •     the benefits of colostrum harvesting (antenatal hand expressing) and how to do it.
  •     why positioning and attachment are so important
  •     an easy guide that you can follow to ensure correct position and attachment
  •     what problems can occur and how to avoid them
  •     how to hand express and what equipment you may need
  •     the role your partner and family can play in supporting you to breastfeed
  •     what to expect in the first few weeks after birth
  •     how and when to introduce a bottle if you want to

These workshops are hands-on and practical, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

I combine my wealth of experience and my love of teaching to get you as ready as you can be to breastfeed.

Birth Calm Classes

Pregnancy mindset, support and relaxation

Birth Calm Classes provide a safe space to connect with other pregnant women and access researched-based, safe guidance from a midwife.

  • Are you finding it difficult to relax and sleep well during pregnancy?
  • Do you have questions about birth but you’re not sure who to ask?
  • Are you anxious about your pregnancy or feeling isolated?

 

Community and support are so important in pregnancy.

Connecting with other pregnant women and sharing your thoughts and concerns can give you reassurance and a confidence boost.

My approach is based on years of experience as an NHS midwife, antenatal educator and hypnobirthing teacher. I’ve supported hundreds of women and their birth partners to experience a peaceful, positive birth. You’ll have the opportunity to ask me anything you’re concerned about, safe in the knowledge that you’ll get a research-based and safe response.

We close the class with a deeply calming, guided hypnosis and relaxation session to give you an amazing deep sleep… and because this class is held via Zoom you can simply fall straight to sleep afterward!

To create a safe space, this class is solely for mums-to-be.

These workshops are hands-on and practical, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

I combine my wealth of experience and my love of teaching to get you as ready as you can be to breastfeed.

You can attend these workshops during pregnancy and postnatally, with baby in arms. Partners are very welcome and encouraged to attend this class. Positive Birth Scotland is fully inclusive and provides a safe space where everyone is welcome, regardless of race or gender. So, if you are a single mum or LGBTQ or surrogate family, whatever your situation – this workshop will be appropriate for your needs.

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."
Claire
"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."
Alexandra
