What is Hatch™ Essential?

Hatch Essential is an online birth and baby course designed for busy mums and dads to be.
It takes you step-by-step through all the must-knows and the things noone tells you about
so you and your partner feel ready for birth and the early days with baby.

What will you learn?

The course covers everything you need to know, including the process of labour, pain relief, medical interventions, the immediate postpartum, feeding and baby care. View the full course breakdown here.

How is Hatch™ different?

We go beyond the basics to give you birth, postpartum, and baby advice you won’t find elsewhere.  You’ll learn about hormones, nutrition, emotional challenges, and how to rock birth and parenthood as a team.

How does it work?

You’ll get instant access to your new antenatal course for you to watch (and re-watch!) as and when you please. Login details and access to the members-only online community will be in your welcome email. We can’t wait to meet you!
