Active Birth Workshop
WORKSHOP FOR COUPLES
Prepare for labour with skills that really work!
This practical and informative one day workshop is designed to help couples prepare for a natural active birth. You'll learn highly effective evidence-based 'active' and 'calm' skills to help you approach your labour with greater confidence, grace and ease. We'll show you how to transform worry into wisdom, fear into courage and doubt into focus and power.
Our Mindfulness-based approach to childbirth will help you reframe your experience of pain and help build self-efficacy, self-relience and confidence. Exciting new research shows that families who use Mindfulness to prepare for birth have lower rates of orthodox pain relief and feel more in control of their birthing experience (Duncan. L, et. al. 2014).
At Womb In Bloom we know that birth favours a relaxed mother. We’ll show you and your parnter how to tap into natural inner resources to navigate your way through your labour artfully and masterfully.
Our workshops also include indigenous birthing practices that empower both women and men during the transition into parenthood. Gentle process work will help deepen your connection with your body, your partner and especially with your new baby!
Active Birth offers new parents a holistic approach to birth that has been shown to shorten the duration of labour by more than a third, can significantly reduce reliance on orthodox pain relief and result in fewer assisted births, less pain, and fewer episiotomies (Cochrane Review - Gupta and Nikoderm. 2000).
AT OUR WORKSHOP YOU WILL ...
☆ Learn how a MINDFULNESS-based approach to birth can help you navigate your birth experience CONFIDENTLY AND FEARLESSLY
☆ Identify & work with your unique pain coping style.
