COVID-19 Update | Due to social distancing our face-to-face classes are currently on hold.
Our classes have now switched to a digital format and we have created the Real Birth Workshop ONLINE
I have trained in a method of antenatal education known as the Real Birth Workshop. I am a trained Real Birth Practitioner & Trainer, meaning I can offer this fun and interactive class to expectant parents, as well as facilitating trainings for other birth professionals, like myself.
What the Real Birth Workshop is all about
The Real Birth Workshop was created with the belief that all expectant parents should have access to positive birth information. It is beneficial for pregnant mums and their birth partners to have positive help with their birth preparation. We support all birthing choices because we believe in empowering you with the right information when you need it.
Birth preparation is really important. It should help you feel confident in your abilities and the decisions that you make about your labour and birth. During the class, we will talk you through your options and help with your birth preparation and birth plan.
What to expect
During the 1-day workshop (6 hours), I will take you on a step by step journey of how our bodies birth our babies. There are amazing physical, hormonal, and emotional processes our bodies work through during labour and birth.
The aim is to help you to understand more about the physiology behind birth and labour. Learning how competent and incredible your body is can help you feel confident and relaxed through the different phases of birth. I will teach practical skills for you and your birth partner so that they also feel comfortable in their role. These skills can be used during late pregnancy, labour and birth to help you feel calm and in control.
The information used within the workshop is taken from evidence-based practice and has been written to promote a positive and holistic approach to your birth.
