Essential Birth Preparation Workshop - 4 hr Couples Workshop
A great workshop for second (or more) timers as a refresher, or for those wanting a shorter couples workshop.
Down to earth and practical this workshop will take you through the different stages of labour, it will help you get a real understanding of what happens to your body during labour and how you can make that process as efficient as possible.
We learn specific breathing and partner techniques for use during labour, and we also talk about other forms of pain relief, induction and when things "go off plan".
Some couples will choose to just do the Essential Birth Prep workshop, others will team it up with Mummas Ultimate Birthing below, and take one of our Antenatal Packages.
Mummas Ultimate Birthing - 6 week Mums Only Class
Mummas Ultimate Birthing Class is a wonderful mix of pregnancy movement & relaxation, geared towards labour. Movement, but not for movements sake, will incorporate specific exercises which will help your body to relax and encourage your baby into the optimum position for their birth.
The focus of this class is birth, the best way to prepare for birth, is by learning how to fully relax, to understand the birth process and to understand how you can utilise and harness gravity and breathing techniques to achieve a positive birth experience.
This class isn't all about "natural" birth, we cannot control what happens during birth, this class is all about how you prepare yourself and how you can control yourself during labour, regardless of what is going on around you. Set to wonderful music, designed to be your anchor, this class is the ultimate in relaxation. So whether this is your first baby, whether you are planning an elective CS or this is your second or third baby and you don't know which path labour will take, this is the class for you.
Over the block of 6 classes you will:
Learn specific moves to use during labour
Learn different breathing techniques which can be utilised during labour, we aren't here to give you a prescription for labour, but we can give you a tool kit of things which may help
Each week we use a different relaxation script at the end of class, this is your chance to truly relax, connect with your baby and prepare yourself for birth
Each class will last approximately 1hr 30 mins, broken down into movement, relaxation and educational chat (a different discussion topic each week). Giving you time out each week to really focus on your baby and make that all important friend network
