3. Daisy Active Birth Workshop

/ Jilly Clarke / 3. Daisy Active Birth Workshop

Class Description

An antenatal class in Welwyn covering everything you need to know about labour. Achieve an active, confident and informed birth with expert advice and techniques.

You and your birth partner will both get the space to prepare as a team. And to confidently plan for your baby’s birth day. Understanding the process of birth and knowing how decisions can impact progress in labour is so important.

The Daisy Birthing Active Birth Workshop helps expectant parents 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. Then, we wrap them together to create one powerful workshop that puts you in charge of your journey.

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 you can work through your thoughts on common decision points during birth and how to mitigate risks.
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.
