What it is and what I can expect?
The Real Birth Workshop was created because we believe that all expectant parents should have access to positive birth information. It is beneficial for pregnant mums and their birth partners to have positive help with their birth preparation. We support all birthing choices because we believe in empowering you with the right information when you need it.
Birth preparation is really important. It should help you feel confident in your abilities and the decisions that you make about your labour and birth. We have trained each of our birth professionals so that they can provide you with this fun, informative antenatal class. They will talk you through your options and help with your birth preparation and birth plan.
Our aim is to help you to understand more about the physiology behind birth and labour. Learning how competent and incredible your body is can help you feel confident and relaxed through the stages of birth. We will teach practical skills for you and your birth partner so they feel comfortable in their role. These can be used during late pregnancy, labour and birth to help you feel calm and in control.
The information we use is taken from evidence-based practice and has been written to promote a positive and holistic approach to your birth.
What is it best for?
We will take you on a step by step journey of how our bodies birth our babies. There are amazing physical, hormonal, and emotional processes our bodies work through during labour and birth. We cover:
- Positive attitudes in pregnancy
- Hormones in pregnancy and birth
- Understanding your pelvis
- Stages of labour
- Ways to reduce stress in labour
- How to be a birth partner and advocate in labour
- Positions for birthing
- Skin to skin with your baby
- Baby’s adjustment to its new world
A class designed to promote positive birth through interactive teaching to help empower pregnant woman and their birth partners during the time leading up to birth. The workshop is designed to dramatically reduce the fear that women can feel at the prospect of having a baby. We inspire women with the normal, natural beauty of pregnancy, labour, birth and beyond.
The workshop is a mix seated sessions, with opportunity to explore comfortable and supported positions in the studio utilising yoga mats, and swiss balls. We also explore various massage, relaxations and rebozo techniques.
