At Kindred, we are passionate about the journey.
For us, it’s not enough just to provide clinical care during pregnancy – we want to prepare people to be parents. We want to facilitate the transition, and admire the change.
Education and support is an invaluable part of the journey, and we have specifically designed our education sessions to be small in size, casual, discussion based and interactive.
Our education sessions are held on weekends and weeknights.
Weekend sessions run on the second Saturday of the month from 1pm-5.30pm with afternoon tea provided, and the cost is $300 per couple. Weeknight sessions run on Tuesday evenings every second month (even months) from 6pm-8.30pm with supper provided, and the cost is $150 per session or $300 for full series.
Our classes also includes a hospital tour of Mater Mothers Private Hospital. If you would like to book a tour only, this can be booked separately at no charge.
Labour & Birth.
We are keen to build your understanding of the physical changes that occur during labour and birth, the impact of hormones and enable you to feel comfortable and confident with the process. We don’t sit on mats and hum, we don’t practice breathing techniques – we talk through the process, we remove the fear; we simply explain.
No, we aren’t going to make your pregnancy longer. Yes, fourth trimester is a valid period during your transition to parenthood and in actual fact, the most important one to feel educated and supported during. This includes information on what to expect as you get used to being parents, while you baby gets used to being in the world. We teach practical skills such as feeding, nappy changes, bathing, settling, safe sleeping during this session.
Making Informed Decisions.
We are strong believers in ensuring you feel comfortable to make decisions about your journey to becoming parents, that you feel are best for you. It’s not up to us to decide these things, but rather our job to give you all the information and support you in your preferences. This class focuses on options such as medicated pain relief, induction of labour, cesarean sections, and all situations where we want you to be able to make informed decisions.
