Online YogaBirthing Couples’ Workshops

“We would recommend this workshop to every expectant couple as a ‘must do’.” Ellie & Rob

This tailored workshop is for couples who are serious about in-depth birth preparation for any scenario that may unfold in their labour.

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 birth and yoga training and have taught pivotal yoga birthing tools for many years. I’m passionate about equipping both Mums and Dads for their birth, no matter how it unfolds.

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.

Dads, in our unique course you’ll learn:

*How and when to transition to hospital and create the perfect birthing environent

*What happens as the stages of labour progress and what you can do to help make it happen,

*Massage and acupressure for pain reduction and endorphin release,

*How to keep her ‘in the zone’ and producing essential oxytocin,

*Liaising effectively with hospital staff to avoid unnecessary medical intervention (and helping when it is),

*How to ‘hold space’ if intervention IS necessary,

*Helping re-start a stalled labour,

*Slowing intense contractions down,

*Moving through exhaustion,

*Encouraging the natural expulsion reflex plus what to do as baby is born and immediately afterwards

*How to navigate the weeks after birthing.  Including key tips from local experts on breastfeeding, sleep patterns, healing nutrition, visitor management, relationship changes and more.

…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.   

*You will get an extensive take home YogaBirthing For Couples manual that covers everything we learn and more. You’ll also get a handy laminated ‘reminder’ sheet of key postures and breathing techniques to have with you wherever you birth.

You’ll leave feeling empowered to ‘be in control of letting go of being in control’ and as a team, help her uterus birth your baby
