Antenatal Classes from Birthing from Within ( 09:00 - 16:00 )

What do YOU need to know to  give birth?

Childbirth and Parenting Preparation

Holistic, Soulful, Interactive & Creative - antenatal classes for conscious parents


These classes are for expectant parents seeking useful information, practical tools, and a thoughtful exploration of pregnancy, birth, and parenting. I welcome parents birthing in hospital, at home, in water or in a clinic.

My classes feature lively group discussion, role-plays, creative exercises and hands-on practice. Through learning a range of pain-coping approaches and labor support practices, parents build confidence and a positive mindset for coping while partners gain new tools for their unique support role. Fathers and birth partners benefit from additional support and resources in a special extra session just for them.

Each birth is unique. These classes are based on Birthing From Within developed by Pam England. Each prenatal class provides resources to help you work towards the experience you envision while preparing you for the full spectrum of birth. Gain new tools and insight as you explore different paths of birth, coping with the intensity of labor, meeting your baby and navigating the unexpected.

Classes extend beyond birth to explore postpartum healing and adjustment and newborn care and parenting.

The classes are held in a warm and nurturing environment and is limited to 6 couples which allows for individual attention and relationships to form.

Building a Pain Coping Mindset

Birthing From Within was founded when Pam England, a mother and midwife, asked people about their experiences in their ante-natal classes. They often told her there wasn’t enough time spent on coping with pain. Parents were telling her “they wished they had learned more about how to embrace and cope with pain, intensity, the unknown and surprises”. As a doula I had women saying the same to me. This is what drew me to this modality of childbirth preparation. I am deeply motivated to help mothers and fathers learn to be mindful and to build a strong pain-coping mindset. You can read more about building a pain coping mindset here or attend my classes to learn mindfulness and pain coping practices that you will use way beyond labour & birth, they are useful for parenting and life.

PRENATAL YOGA

Recommended by most doctors and midwives, prenatal yoga offers a multitude of benefits to both mother and baby throughout pregnancy, during birth and beyond:

 

 

  • Joint exercises - perfect for poor circulation, swelling/water retention and excellent to improve mobility. Also enhances squatting and other birthing positions.
  • Gentle Stretching - maintains supple and toned muscles.
  • Breathing – balances the autonomic nervous system which regulates the major systems of the body and controls hormonal secretions. Deep breathing increases the intake of oxygen to both mother and baby. ‘Birthing breaths’ aid in the preparation for a calm birthing.
  • Yoga Nidra - Blood pressure is also lowered and during this relaxation technique and one gains the equivalent of 4 hours deep sleep. Yoga Nidra also promotes inner communication with your child and assists in releasing any impressions associated with the fear of birthing.
  • In addition, by developing a deeper awareness of your body, a powerful connection between a mother and her child is established.
