Physical & Emotional tools for Labour & Birth
This workshop will help couples connect deeply with their baby, during such a significant and intense time of their lives. It’s also a sweet way to connect with your partner – whether your partner is a spouse, sister, mother, doula or friend!
Using yoga poses, partnering poses, massage techniques, and breath and alignment exercises, the birthing-partner will learn how to best support the birthing woman during labour. They’ll learn how to help relieve aches and discomfort using their own body, and other props often helpful in childbirth.
Couples will have the chance to:
- Learn gentle yoga postures with an emphasis on working in pair
- Work together as they might in labour
- Learn breathing and massage and touch techniques useful for pregnancy, and labour
- Learn movements and positions for labour and birth
- Learn and understand birth as a sexual event
- Enjoy a bonding meditation and visualization with your baby
No yoga experience is necessary. The workshop is perfect for all trimesters, experience levels, and body sizes. Couples are encouraged to come to the workshop 2 or 3 times to consolidate learning and continue to build connection and trust.
“Coming to the workshop with my partner was the perfect thing to prepare for us for our upcoming first baby in one month. Before doing the birth rehearsal, my partner wouldn’t have known what to do with himself while I’m in labour and now we both feel confident that he will be able to physically, as well as emotionally support me through the contractions. I’m almost excited for labour so we can put the techniques in place! Thank you for holding this space for us.” – Tierney
“The couple’s workshop has equipped my birth partner and I with invaluable tools to use during labour. It was also a lovely opportunity for us to connect with each other and our baby and understand the importance of both our roles in the birth of our baby. We left feeling more connected and confident that we can work together to have a positive birth for our baby. We will definitely attend again to consolidate what we learnt.” – Tilly
