Birthing

Active Birthing Movement Classes

A package of three movement based sessions each lasting 1hr which run in the comfort of your own home. During sessions we will learn  about Active Birthing and use movements, breathing and visualisation techniques that  provide the foundation for enabling an active birth and include :

Movements for pregnancy and labour – to work on inner birthing muscles and bring balance and symmetry to the body, to help control the speed and intensity of contractions, to encourage baby into optimal position.

Breathing and Relaxation techniques – Breathing and visualisation techniques for relaxation and a different breath at each session for early labour, established labour and the bearing down stage.

Birth Education – Organs, muscles and hormones present and how to encourage and assist them during pregnancy and labour, the importance of gravity and how this affects our birthing experience.

The cost for movement sessions is  £45 for  each 1hr session.
