In YogaBirth classes, we stretch, reach, lengthen and strengthen, working with and into your pregnant body in a way that leaves you feeling good - looser, lighter, more mobile and comfortable.
You will sleep better, breathe well and week on week, feel your confidence in your pregnancy and birth ahead, increase.
We become familiar with different positions you may find yourself in throughout each stage of labour, encouraging you to rock, sway and circle, finding comfort in natural flowing movements. Becoming more familiar with these positions throughout your pregnancy makes it easier to trust your instincts and find positions that work for you during labour.
For labour to progress naturally your thinking brain needs to take a back seat and your subconscious take over, following your instincts, listening and responding to what your body and baby needs.
Combine familiar, natural movements with breathing and relaxation techniques and you have tools you need to birth your baby.
At the end of the session, there is tea, there is cake, there is talk!
A warm circle of mothers - women in the same boat as you - feels wonderful to be part of, a rare but important chance to share and chat and learn about what you are going through in pregnancy and what you will need for birth and life with a new baby.
If you're pregnant, come along. Check in and see for yourself what women draw from the class, and the wonderful, positive birth stories it leads to...
