Women's Birth Prep Circle (5 weeks)
Time & Location
About the Event
This 5 week course for pregnant women combines a range of techniques from yoga and hypnobirthing which offer support in preparation for birth. Each week has a different theme and we combine a pregnancy yoga session (including breath work, postures, meditation and visualisation) with hypnobirthing wisdom/practices, deep relaxation (either a hypnobirthing or yoga nidra script), selected birthing videos and practical tips for parenting in the early days.
This course values the power of women coming together to share their experience, alongside recognising the important role of their birth companion (partner/friend/parent). Exercises and information will be available to pass to birth partners and in one session birth partners are welcome to attend the session.
We hope that you complete this course feeling empowered and positive about your birth, with a toolkit of practices/approaches to support you alongside whatever birth preferences you choose and in whatever turn your birthing takes.
