Trying to conceive or already pregnant? Giving birth is one of life’s major events and you need to prepare emotionally, mentally as well as physically for it.
As a Gentle Birth Childbirth Educator it’s my goal to prepare you and your partner for a positive birth.
The Gentle Birth program trains your brain, teaches you techniques to manage physically on the day and also prepares you to navigate the maternity care system using practical decision-making tools. It changes the way you think about pregnancy, birth and parenting so you can feel excited about birth and confident in your ability to handle whatever comes your way on the day and those intense weeks of early parenting.
You will learn about signs / stages of labour as well as labour positions and comfort measures.
You will learn easy to use mindfulness practices and breathing techniques to prepare you for birth.
You will learn about the neuroscience of birth.
You will learn that daily use of the GentleBirth program rewires your brain for calm and confidence.
You will learn about the role of your birth partner on the day.
‘GentleBirth gave us so many tools, and great support. Our instructor made the class fun and engaging. My partner loved the brain science and sports psychology and feels very sure of his role now. We both feel ready to handle whatever comes our way on the big day.’
