Antenatal Class Resource List
A list of antenatal resources mentioned in the classes
Throughout the Antenatal Class series, I refer to a lot of epic resources you can access for pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Here’s a list of those resources, and some extras I have added since, to help you find what you need with ease.
Qiara – this is my favourite probiotic for the whole family. I take the pregnancy and breastfeeding one and use the infant and kids for my boys. Mr C+F has the adult one.
Collagen – Maternally Happy is made by a registered midwife in Melbourne 😉 I take it every morning and love it!
Probiotics to reduce your chance of GBS
Research shows the following strains may reduce your risk of GBS:
L. Reuteri RC14 &
L. Rhamnosus GR1
Swiss or Blackmores both have them (check the labels to ensure they contain BOTH) or a practitioner only brand like Biomedica. If you’re interested in purchasing this product get in touch with @emmaparknutritionist – she can hook you up!
You should start taking them from 32 weeks. If you have a history of thrush, urinary tract infections or BV (bacterial vaginosis) start them at least 28 weeks.
Check out my Shop Page for a huge range of products I recommend for pregnancy and postpartum. Feel free to check back often as I’m constantly adding new products or keep up to date with my newsletter and Instagram.
Seasons Of Mama have awesome Labour and Postpartum Aromatherapy blends, teas and bath salts
Silverette – In the antenatal classes I highly recommend the HydroGel Discs. After having my second babe I discovered Silverette. I instantly fell in love with them and tried the Hydrogel Breast Discs again but didn’t like them in comparison to Silverette. They really are magic! You can also use them for future pregnancies.
Milk and Poppy – for all your nappy and play bag, swaddles, blankets and milestone card needs
