Are you currently pregnant with your first child and looking to enter labour feeling calm, relaxed and empowered?
Have you had a baby before but looking for a birth experience where you feel more in control, relaxed and excited?
Our Active Birth Workshops are run by our Prenatal yoga teacher and breastfeeding counsellor Kaitlyn Sandona. Kaitlyn is proud mama to a 4 year old boy of her own, and will guide you and your birth partner through a practical workshop filled with practice, discussions and active participation preparing you for birth - exploring how the labouring woman/person might want to move, position and breathe, and how the birth partner can play an active role encouraging different techniques, employing massage and acupressure and more. You'll be shown practical ‘tools’ for working with pain in labour including touch, movement and massage preparing you for birth
In this small group educational class we'll explore how as a team can work together to use mind-body techniques throughout the labour process. This 4.5 hour interactive workshop will include:
Who is welcome to attend?
The birthing woman/person and anyone who you might want supporting you in labour. This might be:
Birthing mother and father
Single mother with support person or doula
Mother and daughter (birthing) | sister and sister (birthing)
What stage of pregnancy should I be in?
Most women attend this workshop in their third trimester so the techniques are fresh in their mind, however please feel free to attend from your second trimester on. We generally don't recommend booking within 3 weeks of your due date in case your baby decides to come a little early (however please let us know if that's the case as we may be able to slot you in at the last minute!).
A lunch break is provided, the venue has a kitchenette and we'll provide drinks and water. Please bring any snacks you would like.
