The Natal Birth Workshop
Antenatal Class for Mum and her Birth Partner
My workshop is for an expectant mother and whoever she chooses to have supporting her during her childbirth. If mum has already attended one of my MummyNatal classes she may already have a good idea of who she wants to support her. She may choose her partner, husband or wife, family member, best friend, or perhaps a doula or private midwife. There is no rule about who your birthing partner should be, as long as mum feels relaxed and supported by that person, and whoever is there by mum’s side is fully aware of the importance of the birth partner role.
This session can be taught either with other couples in small groups, or I can teach you privately in your own home. The Natal Birth workshop will show birth partners what to expect for mum during labour, as well as how a birth partner can offer practical and emotional support during pregnancy and labour.
The Birth Workshop will guide you through:
-the importance of the mind-body connection
-relaxation and managing stress – for both of you
-breathing practise for remaining calm during birth
-childbirth physiology to demystify the experience and help you feel confident
-practical birth positions and anchors
-practical tips to prepare birth partner for their role
-birth choices and writing out your preferences
-interventions and how to cope with the unexpected
-communication and ‘codes’ to ensure strong teamwork and trust
-male and female psychology during birth
