The Birth Path part 1: Labour and birth – a walk through this incredible journey from pregnancy to birth
You will leave this workshop understanding how birth works and how amazing the human body is! We go through the natural birth process step by step, looking at the physical changes as well as the psychological ones from pre-labour through to holding your baby in your arms. This is essential knowledge for all people as modern culture seems to portray birth as something dangerous and certainly painful. In these three hours you will learn about the reasons behind labour pain and the role of hormones in the birth process. We look at birth from the perspective of mum, dad and baby as this is a team effort! This course is suitable for everybody, whatever kind of birth you are planning.
The Birth Path part 2: Creating your own toolkit of comfort measures (this is designed to lead on from part 1)
Part two builds on the understanding you have built up from doing part one. In this workshop we work together to create a unique toolkit of techniques and comfort measures based on your own preferences and situation. Whether you are planning a home birth or hospital, planned caesarian or going for a VBAC these are comfort measures to take anywhere. We look at the difference between writing birth plans and birth wishes. We take a look at current birth culture, family culture and belief systems. You will leave this workshop feeling confident and calm about how you will cope with the intensity and changing tides of labour.
