childbirth and parenting educationAnne Bradshaw
For 20 years I was a National Childbirth Trust Teacher in Worcester, becoming an Advanced Teacher for 15 of these years. As an Associate Midwifery Lecturer, I worked with Student Midwives for some years teaching Active Birth, and how to teach adults. For three years I was Parenting Education Consultant for Worcestershire Acute NHS Trust, and whilst in post helped to develop a DVD for parents to be, writing the script for the birth story on the DVD. I have contributed to a Midwifery in the Community textbook, with a chapter on teaching antenatal education in the community, and for the past 5 years have practised as an Independent Childbirth Educator in Worcestershire.
I believe in the power of birthing women and the power of understanding how to work with your body.
I believe in teaching simply and effectively and in transformational learning.
And I love babies!

If you ask parents what they wished they had done before having children, they will often say “I wish I had appreciated my sleep more!” There is no coincidence that sleep deprivation has been used as a method of torture through the ages. When you are not getting...
