Ante-natal birthing workshops

Workshops take place every two months on a Saturday at 2.30pm at Thrive Pilates Studio

Ante Natal Birthing workshops are to empower you and your partner throughout late pregnancy, the birth process and what to expect when your baby arrives.

This workshop is ideal for women in their last trimester and their partners. It gives you both an idea of what to expect in hospital, how to cope with and relax in the different stages of labour and how to feel empowered no matter what birth you have.

The Ante Natal Birthing workshop includes:

  • The last few weeks of pregnancy and what to do if you are overdue

  • Packing your hospital bag – the essentials to bring with you.

  • Maximise time at home before going in to the hospital.

  • The anatomy and physiology of birth and the different stages of labour.

  • How to use breath, relaxation and visualisation in labour to tap into your pain relieving hormones and reduce any stress in hospital.

  • How to relax and move into different labour and birth positions.

  • Interventions, the benefits and risks and how to stay positive and active throughout them.

  • The Partners role – ideas to support and encourage your partner through labour and how to feel useful!

  • Massage for labour

  • Connecting with your new born baby and feeding options.

The workshop includes book of handouts and refreshments.
