“I liked that Mike put the blokes at ease. It felt very much a joint effort and really helped empower us with knowledge of what to do” – Ed
Don’t hesitate to take the couples class, it has helped us prepare better than anything else we have read or practised!! We both came out feeling confident and empowered about having a wonderful birth experience. No matter if it doesn’t go exactly how I would like it to, we feel we are now armed with a coping tool for any scenario. Mike made my husband feel relaxed and integral to helping me when the big day comes. I cannot recommend Linda enough as a teacher, she is incredible” – Dani
YogaBirthing Couples’ Workshops
Studies continuously show that when a father is present and supportive during birth, every aspect of a normal birth, and relationships within the family after birth, are improved.
My husband and co-workshop teacher Mike was my support person and advocate/gatekeeper through an emergency cesarean and two natural VBAC’s; one with lots of medical complications.
Mike has ‘walked the walk’ and now enjoys ‘talking the talk’: Helping me to equip other Dads and Mums for one of the most significant days of their lives.
I’ve had extensive pre and post natal yoga training and have taught yoga birthing tools for many years. I’m passionate about equipping others for their birth, no matter how it unfolds.
“We would recommend this workshop to every expectant couple as a ‘must do’.” Ellie & Rob
“Great with other Dads being there, sharing experiences and learning techniques to help through labour.” Stuart
“This workshop should be available on the NHS. We learnt so much about labour and just how important Dad’s role is as advocate for mum.” Aimee
“Linda and Mike are amazing together. They are armed with a wealth of knowledge to install you with confidence about coping with birth and parenthood.” Dan
…there is so much you can do to facilitate the birth and recovery! Statistics show that birth intervention drops by more than 50% when the Dad is actively involved in supporting the birth.
Private workshops for couples also available from £145
“The one on one session I did with you was SO helpful throughout the labour. Thank you so much! The labour was pretty quick (less than 4 hours from first contraction to delivery) but I used the different positions to help cope with the contractions and the quick tutorial you gave Tim on the right kind of massage to do was amazing. The breathing exercises were also brilliant – so simple but absolutely critical for feeling in control and managing the pain. I definitely focused on ‘breathing’ the baby out rather than pushing this time and it seemed so much more natural than my first labour and meant that I didn’t have any tearing and feel absolutely fine now 🙂
Amazing how much information you managed to share in just a couple of hours. Thank you so much again. It was such a positive experience.” Polly
