About the Birth Preparation Workshop
This workshop is designed to help women and their birth partners prepare confidently for the big day. The main body of the session is concerned directly with giving you both practical self help strategies that will support you throughout the birth process. Some time will be dedicated to outlining the physical and physiological process of labour. This is a necessary part of the workshop, as once you develop a good understanding of the scientific process of labour, you will truly get a feel to how the self help strategies support and promote the labour journey. The workshop has a clear emphasis on supporting the birth partner's role and allows plenty of time to practice various active birth techniques including massage, position, and breathing. There will be time at the end for questions directly linked to the workshop or anything to do with labour.
These sessions have to be booked and paid for in advance. The session is pretty intensive so it is important to bring refreshments with you to keep you both going. A typical session includes:
