PREPARATION FOR BIRTH
Techniques are learnt to aid you through the early contractions and for some these may be enough to carry you through established labour to delivery. Learning breathing and postures for labour and delivery can take some of the mystery out of the event.
Mindfulness is also an excellent way of preparing for birth and parenthood . Please read the mindfulness page for fuller information and contact me to discuss whether this approach would be of benefit to you. This is a testimonial from one woman who attended the mindfulness course:
The Birthlight Trust is an educational charity that promotes an integrated, holistic approach to pregnancy, birth and babyhood. Its main objective is to enhance well being and enjoyment for parents and their babies before and after birth.
