“I would highly recommend Beth’s courses to expectant parent in the area. We have started our journey with the Daisy family when I was 7 months pregnant. I have met other mamas in the antenatal class and felt very prepared for the big day. We have also decided to go to the Active Birthing Workshop, so that my partner would be prepared as well. He still recommends going to this course to all partners and we are sure that without the course he wouldn’t have been able to support me the way he did.” Claudia
A workshop 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, and to confidently prepare 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 unique 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:
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 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 birth plans and preferences, where to give birth, when to contact the midwife and the labour environment (thinking about those hormones).
Breathing, movement, relaxation and birth hypnosis techniques.
Learn and practice proven breathing, movement and relaxation techniques. Perfect for pregnancy, labour and beyond.
You’ll learn three Daisy breaths, for each stage of labour but also incredibly useful for every day life!
Massage techniques for pregnancy and labour.
Learn range of important massage and hold methods to help lower adrenaline and encourage labour.
Practice them alongside all the other techniques that you’ll learn
Role of Birth Partner.
The role of a birth partner is vital and we include tips and techniques 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.
The Daisy Birthing Active Birth Workshop is for expectant mums and birth partner/s. Ideally attended from around 30 weeks pregnant right up until baby’s birth. Importantly, workshops are adapted to suit all pregnancy related conditions with ease.
This is a perfect as a refresher course for second (or subsequent) babies, and/or combined with Daisy Birthing classes.
