It’s October and we are into Autumn – a wonderful season in Japan. The State of Emergency was lifted at the end of September, but hospitals haven’t significantly altered any restrictions (even with previous liftings of States of Emergency, not much changed). I think, after a few weeks/months, if the situation in Japan remains stable and numbers don’t significantly increase again, possibly things may relax more…so let’s see.
With my classes, meetings & get-togethers, this month there will continue to be a variety of online classes with some in-person options so everyone can choose what they feel most comfortable with. With any classes that are in person, health precautions and proper distancing will continue to stay in place (mask wearing and limited numbers). The classes and events I offer have all come from me knowing what I would have benefitted from with my first pregnancy – the support and information that would have helped me. I hope these classes and meetings help you, too.
As always, for anyone who would like to arrange a private, semi-private or small group, fully comprehensive childbirth preparation class – Birthing With Confidence or Aiiku Birth Skills – please get in touch. And, I’ll continue to offer private sessions in-person and online for birth plan consultations, Infant Care classes, Breastfeeding support and post-partum help. If you are interested in any other type of class and wonder whether I offer it, please send me a message.
Please get in touch if you’d like to book a class or if you have any questions. For anyone who is interested in a Birth Support Package for doula support during pregnancy, labour (in-person or virtual depending on restriction) and the post-partum period, I have limited availability for Nov-Dec (1 new client only now). There is more availability from January onwards of 2022.
Don’t forget, for ONLINE options, I have a ticket system available too (which includes a small discount).
