I regularly run these labour and birthing sessions with partners, consisting of a practical class with loads of practices to help you through labour and birth. Open to new and current students. Ideal from 32 weeks+.
Cost: £45 for you and your partner together for a 3 hour session (minimum 2 couples need to book).
Next session dates: Sunday 21st May 10.30-1.30; Sunday 4th June 10.30-1.30
More dates will be released but please contact me if you are interested in a later date and I can ask to see if at least one other couple is interested in the same date/s.
A one-off yoga workshop that you can attend with your partner from late pregnancy to help prepare you both for labour and birth. You can be a complete beginner at yoga so it is not necessary to have attended my regular pregnancy yoga classes.
As the pregnant woman you will learn breathing and relaxation techniques to keep you calm and energised as well as movements and positions to help ease labour and birth. I can show you ways that you can help position your baby optimally before labour and simple practices to create more space in your pelvis during the different stages of labour. You will learn about optimal positions and breathing for birthing too.
As the partner you will learn in a practical way how you can best support your partner during labour and birth so that you too can feel more confident and be a great partner on the day.
These sessions usually take place at my pleasant home near Leamington town centre. All mats and props provided but please bring a birthing ball if you are planning to use one in labour. If it's a private session then I can come to you if you are local.
I wanted to say a big thank you as I focussed on everything you taught me - lots of squats, asymmetric pelvic movements and even some noises! I actually delivered without any pain relief at all. I don't think I would have done so well without your brilliant preparation.
I attended pre-natal and 'mum & baby' yoga with Belinda, as well as her birth preparation course, and have thoroughly enjoyed all of them. Belinda is knowledgeable, attentive and compassionate and she creates a wonderful atmosphere in all her classes. My experience of pregnancy, labour and birth was relaxing and enjoyable and I credit Belinda for a great deal of that. She helped me to find my voice when I was preparing to give birth and that was incredibly valuable to me when the time came. I signed up for mummy/baby yoga as soon as my little boy and I were ready and it's one of the highlights of our weeks. I couldn't recommend her more highly, especially the birthing session. Thank you!
