An Active Birth Workshop is for a mother-to-be and her partner and is held in the comfort of their own home. It is most suitable for the third trimester of pregnancy.
The workshop is designed to empower women to participate fully in the birth of their child and to give birth as easily and naturally as possible. You will gain a better understanding of what to expect during labour and birth and how you can help yourself to cope.
We will discuss the physiology of birth, natural pain relief options and the important role your partner can play. A perfect complement to prenatal yoga, you will learn how yoga positions, breathwork and mindfulness can help you to give birth as naturally and easily as possible.
The role of the partner is very important and we discuss just what the birth partner can do to encourage and empower the mother during labour and birth.
We also discuss how best to cope in the hours after birth to strengthen the bond between mother and baby and help along the path to breastfeeding, if that is the chosen option.
The workhop includes handouts and recommended reading to support the material we cover.
The cost is €100 per couple.
