“We have a secret in our culture, and it is not that birth is painful. It’s that women are strong.”
Laura Stavoe Harm
As we make our journey through life we plan and prepare for many things. Childbirth should be no different. There is an opportunity for huge growth when bringing new life into the world and it is key for both mum and her birth partner to be committed and ready for the challenge….
A typical class may cover:
* The Birth Process
* Labour signs/positions/tools
* POSTnatally – welcoming mum and baby home for the “4th” Trimester
We will practice certain yoga poses and relaxation. Relaxation is key to the process of pregnancy, birth and beyond. Techniques for breathing and relaxation will be taught and practiced in class so that you may master the ability to deeply relax at a moments notice. This class is a great resource for learning how your partner can best support you during childbirth.
