"Both Cory and I are absolutely convinced that your classes and Womb to World workshop contributed to how quickly and relatively smoothly the birth went." Amy S.
Every labour is different so your labour will be uniquely and incredibly special to you. The aim of this session is to offer you and your partner the chance to have some dedicated space to prepare for your baby’s birth together and learn techniques that can help you have the most positive and pro-active birth experience possible.
In this one-off three hour practical session, we will explore ways in which your partner can support you during your labour, both practically and emotionally, including birth positions, acupressure, massage, visualisations and breathing. I hope you will both leave the session feeling better prepared, informed, inspired and with some practical tools to help during the birth of your child.
Remember if you can't make any of the session dates above, I regularly do private workshops at people's homes. These can be arranged at a time to suits you.
Feedback from couples who've attended the workshop:
"Today was great thanks, best thing we've done yet in terms of feeling prepared for the birth. I'm feeling much more positive about it now. Thank you."
"The birth preparation class information was so useful to us both during my labour and although we had to have a hospital delivery it was a positive experience!"
"Just a quick note to thank you for Saturday, we both got lots from it and feel very prepared. The biggest thing we got from you was the living in the moment; we will both hold on to this!"
"The approach was very clear, yet not overly clinical or medical, which meant I was able to relate to it all and understand what my body needs to go through and how I can try to help along the way."
"[My husband] found all the advice and information to be really useful as well, but particularly benefited from knowing what he could do to help. It was great for us both to have some time focusing on what is ahead and thinking about what we can do to help each other out.”
"Just want to say a big thank you as the birth prep workshop really paid off. I had a very positive birth and Ant was so good at supporting me too!"
The next dates bookable for 2019 are 7th September and 9th November. The confirmed 2020 dates are 18th January and 7th March.
Venue and time of sessions
The sessions always start at 10am and finish at 1pm. I ask that you try to arrive by 9:50am so that yuo can get yourself a cup of tea, get settled and we can all start on time. There's alot to get through!
In the winter months of November, January and March, I run the session at Hedley Hall in Oldfield Park.
In the summer months of May, July and September the session is held at the Weston Methodist Church in Newbridge.
Booking and paying for your Workshop
The workshop is £60 per couple. This price includes homemade cake and tea and a comprehensive information pack which is emailed to you after the session. If you would like to organise a private workshop for you and your partner for any reason - perhaps you can't make the dates, or you would just prefer a private consultation, these are bookable for £80 plus travel costs.
Remember, you can claim 20% off the price of your Womb to World Workshop* if you book your place within two weeks of coming to your first Pregnancy Yoga class with me. This makes the price £48 rather than £60. What a bargain!
You ensure your place on the Workshop by making your payment, which you can do in class with cash or cheque (G. Bassford) or via PayPal using the button below. Once I have received your payment, I will send you an email to confirm your place.
* this is not valid for private workshops I'm afraid.
I am more than happy to offer a full refund up to three weeks before the date of the workshop. I will also offer a refund after that if I can fill your place.
