Private and Group Workshops Available
During these sessions, we can show you and your birth partner(s) exercises and techniques to build confidence and help ensure you enjoy a calm and comfortable birth experience.
Our birth preparation sessions are tailored to your individual needs but might include:
* hypno-breathing, relaxation and visualisation exercises
* antenatal and birth preparation
* birth choices and preferences
* pain relief techniques
* massage during childbirth
* tummy massage and other lovely pregnancy massage techniques
* working with shiatsu birth focus points
* positions which will help ease childbirth
* positive birth stories and dvds
Massage, in particular, has been used for centuries during childbirth. Recent studies demonstrate that massage therapy reduces medical intervention and need for pain relief during childbirth. It can also shorten labour time and has a positive effect on the birth partner in helping them to feel included and a more supportive part of the birth experience.
We offer Group Workshops for up to 4 couples and these run from 10am-5pm on Saturday's throughout the year.
The cost is £75 per couple and this includes handouts, a bottle of 'Massage Oil for a Calm Birth', a set of Positive Birth Affirmation Cards and a 15% discounted pregnancy massage.
