During the workshop we'll explore how to use movement, breathing, relaxation and massage to support your birth journey. We take this opportunity to look at the position of your baby, getting and keeping baby in that optimal foetal position, making sure you understand the principles of active birth and how to use them during your labour, we talk through your birth plan and discuss the importance of things like the delivery of the placenta, delayed cord clamping, vitamin K, skin to skin to name but a few! I make sure that you and your partner are comfortable with the breathing techniques, I also teach you some massage techniques that you can use during labour to really stimulate those pain relieving endorphins! The workshop will offer you the opportunity to gain a real in depth understanding of the physiology of labour, what causes processes to happen, what causes the process to falter and most importantly we also have a look at what can be done to get things back on track. Helping you to learn techniques to enable your birthing partner to provide meaningful support through prompts, breathing, massage and practical tasks.
