An antenatal class in Welwyn for mum and her birth partner covering everything you need to know about labour. You’ll get expert advice to help you achieve an active, informed and confident birth. You will both get the space to prepare as a team. To confidently plan for your baby’s birth day.
The Daisy Birthing Active Birth Workshop helps expectant mums and birth partners prepare together for an active and confident birth.
Firstly we take the best elements of traditional antenatal education workshops, hypnobirthing and active birth classes. Secondly we wrap them together to create one powerful workshop. This is the second step of your continuous perinatal support, taking you from pregnancy through the first 18 months. Allowing you the confidence that comes from realising you can both do this.
Your workshop will include:
Antenatal Education. Understanding the labour journey, then learning how to confidently work with your body to help labour move along.
Next we’ll work through common decisions that may need to be made.
We’ll also discuss what interventions you may encounter and how to prepare for them.
Active birth education.
You’ll learn techniques, positions and movements for labour and also how to encourage the natural birthing process.
We’ll discuss the role of hormones. Learning how to build the labour friendly ones, and limit ones that may slow the process.
You will have a chance to practice and get comfortable with the techniques you’ve learnt.
Advice on getting prepared.
We’ll discuss where to give birth, when to contact the midwife and the labour environment (thinking about building those hormones).
Breathing, movement, relaxation and birth hypnosis techniques.
You’ll learn three Daisy breaths, for each stage of labour but also incredibly useful for every day life! You can put them together with movement and relaxation techniques to create a toolkit to manage labour.
Massage techniques for pregnancy and labour.
Learn important massage and hold methods to help lower adrenaline and encourage labour.
Then practice them alongside all the other techniques that you’ll learn.
Role of Birth Partner.
The role of a birth partner is vital. So we include tips and techniques for you to be central to the process, for all eventualities.
As a birth partner you’ll get a chance to practice techniques to calm, relax and support.
