This workshop will guide you on a practical journey through labour until the first hour or so after the birth of your baby. The focus will be on how you can work with your body, your breath, your baby and your natural instincts. We will look at how women instinctually breathe, move, and change positions both on land and in water and how this may change and deepen as the birth progresses. You will learn the difference between various upright positions – how and why they may help you during labour, while giving birth and after.
The role of the partner will be explored throughout – how you can best support, touch, hold and be there for her. It is impossible to know ahead of time what your partner will want, whether this will involve a lot of active participation or not. So, the emphasis will be on how you can practice together during pregnancy, learn how she likes to be touched and develop the skills to respond to her at the time in the way that she needs. Developing this dialogue and communication ahead of time is the key to sharing the birth of your baby together and your first hours as parents, in a way you will always treasure and remember.
