Classes run on a Saturday from 9am to 5pm in Crows Nest, Sydney.
There's a maximum of 10 couples to ensure an intimate environment, easy access to experts and the ability to meet other expectant parents.
The Workshop condenses all the essential information on Birth and Parenting into one day, with regular breaks to eat, mingle with other parents and ask questions.
The event will be COVID-safe.
The $500 per couple cost includes the full-day workshop led by two highly qualified midwives as well as a range of handouts, checklists and guides for later use.
Lunch, morning and afternoon tea and refreshments will be provided.
You'll also have 12 months access to The Nest, an exclusive Facebook group for Sarah's clients and the chance to join live Q&A calls with a midwife if you have any ongoing questions while pregnant or with your newborn.
The classes are run by Sarah Tooke, an award-winning midwife with over 15 years experience and 10 of those spent educating thousands of couples in birth and parenting at a leading Sydney private hospital. Sarah's also a mum of 2 boys so can blend the evidence-based information with what really happens!
