Breathing and moving for birth

As an experienced doula, birth prep and perinatal yoga teacher, I am really passionate about helping families experience a calm and confident birth. This workshop is ideal for those in the second or third trimester, and covers a range of topics surrounding the breath and movement to support birth. This is for you to attend with your birth partner, or you're welcome to come on your own too. If you're planning a vaginal birth, this workshop will provide you with tips, information, space to practise techniques, and ask any questions you may have. Numbers are limited to ensure a personal approach.

- Exploring movement and positions for labour, using different props (with the optional help of your partner) 

- Breathing for birth, including the key breathing techniques that can support you in pregnancy and labour, exploring these and relating them to the stages of birth

Teas and coffees (and cake!) provided too.
