Online Antenatal Classes with Janet Balaskas

Prepare for the birth of your baby with world-renowned childbirth educator Janet Balaskas.

Your body instinctively knows how to give birth and your baby knows how to be born

Active Birth antenatal classes are a comprehensive resource for birth preparation, designed to build your confidence and increase the possibility for a problem free, natural birth.

Learning with Janet from the comfort of your own home, you will prepare yourself for the big day by practising labour and birthing positions, breathing and self-hypnosis.

Choose from these inspirational antenatal courses to be fully prepared and confident for your  birth and for life with your new baby:

Active Birth Online Workshop

The Active Birth Workshop is Janet Balaskas’s iconic and influential antenatal course. It offers everything you need to prepare for the birth of your baby. Be inspired as Janet guides you on a practical journey through labour until the first hour 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. A truly empowering experience!

Hypnobirthing for Active Birth

Hypnobirthing works wonderfully with Active Birth. Now you can learn Hypnobirthing online, in your own home, with the guidance and experience of a gifted teacher. Janet’s unique approach to hypnobirthing draws on decades of experience as a birth educator to complement the benefits of Active Birth.
The course includes one Sunday Session plus four weekly Practice Sessions starting the Monday evening after the Course.

Pregnancy Yoga

Janet Balaskas is the pioneer of pregnancy yoga and has taught and inspired teachers all over the world. She brings her unique wisdom, warmth and experience to these inspirational pregnancy yoga classes which bring you all the benefits of yoga as well as preparation for your birth.

Private Sessions

Private Sessions with Janet Balaskas can be arranged if you prefer to work one-to-one or one-to-couple, or if the dates for a course don’t work for you. They are held on zoom, and can cover Active Birth and Hypnobirthing techniques, or advice and mentoring on specific topics you choose.

Usually, when a woman is undisturbed relaxed in a peaceful and private environment, birth progresses well, without complications. We also know that on occasions mum or baby may need a helping hand, so we offer a broad range of information about the physiology of labour and birth, insights into common medical interventions and how to use them.

Be Empowered in Your Choices:

Whether you want to give birth in a birthing centre, a hospital or at home; in water, on a bed, or on a birthing mat; our antenatal classes will help you to make the choice that’s best for you, and give you all the preparation you need.
