HOW TO TEACH AN ACTIVE BIRTH WORKSHOP

JANUARY/FEB 2021

Saturday 16th Jan, Saturday 23rd Jan, Saturday 30th Jan; Saturday 6th Feb 

9.30 am– 5.30 pm each day (UK time)

CONTENT OF THE TRAINING

This is a birth educator training unlike any other – offering you unique practical skills to help awaken the instincts for birthing that all women have. It is primarily about birthing with the body and learning how to empower parents to trust in their innate ability to do this though experiential group work.

Included in this is a convincing, research based and eye-opening way of teaching the birth process.  As parents learn about the wonderful physiology of birth, you will see fear and anxiety turn to confidence. You will discover new ways  of demonstrating the baby’s journey through the bones of the pelvis and the involuntary functions of the uterus. Learn about cutting edge topics such as the hormonal and microbial physiology and the value of the placental transfusion and how these can be taught to parents in simple, engaging ways.

Isn’t the human body marvellous! Now I know how it works and how I can support my partner I’m really looking forward to being there. I can’t wait to be a father and to see my baby! 

The agenda for the 4 study days is outlined below. We reserve the right to change this as needed according to the dynamic of the group.
