FOR MOMS-TO-BE AND PARTNERS!
Discover how yoga, breathing techniques and meditation can help you tap into your own innate and intuitive ability to give birth. Whether you are planning to have a home birth or a hospital birth, this workshop will give you a range of tools that can be used to minimize pain and interventions, speed up both the labour and the delivery and help the postpartum recovery and healing process.
In this workshop we will explore:
- Yoga asanas (poses) to ease discomfort and assist throughout the birthing process.
- Pranayama (breathing techniques) and toning as a pain management technique.
- Meditation and visualization techniques to release fears and envision a positive birthing experience.
- Basic massage techniques that partner can use to help alleviate physical discomforts and tension.
This 4-hour workshop is designed for small groups of moms-to-be and their partners. The workshop consists of two sessions.
Week 1: We will go in depth about how breathing can be used as a focal point and pain management technique for the birthing process. This session will cover pranayama, meditation and visualization techniques for pain relief. We will use meditation techniques to clear the mind and calm the nerves in order to envision the birthing experience you want to have! This session is moms-to-be only.
Week 2: We will integrate breath work and physical poses and learn how to use them to not only address pain, but also help facilitate an easier and quicker birthing process through all stages of labour; from the onset of contractions through to the final stages of pushing. We will also show partner some hands on massage techniques that can be a great support as well. This session is for moms-to-be & partners.
It was a precious experience for me. I have taken a birth prep class at hospital with my partner. Some poses are different… breathing techniques are different…Also at the hospital they had no advice for massages a partner can do. Taking this course gave me courage that I would like to try having a baby natural way if I can. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity. I am less than 1 month away to the due date. I am very excited and not scared.Birth Prep Workshop Student
