Full Description

Pregnancy is a time of growing, stretching and pushing the edges of comfort. This is true for a pregnant woman’s partner as well. In this workshop we will practice gentle, partner-assisted stretches that benefit both parties, along with easy breathing and meditative practices. Also included will be massage techniques to soothe and relieve physical and mental discomforts.
For the Birth Partner, this class can help you centre yourself so that you can be present, helpful and supportive during pregnancy and throughout the labor and delivery process. For the pregnant woman this class is a great way to spend time with your partner and learn ways to effectively cope with your body’s changes and the demands of labor and delivery.

Your Birth Partner may be your life partner, a parent or even a close friend. This workshop is centred on support, trust and connection. We will teach you techniques to experience the journey of pregnancy and birth (labor) together. We hope that your Birth Partner will feel better equipped, more confident and more eager to support the pregnant mama.

This workshop can be attended by pregnant ladies and their birth partners after the 12 week scan. We welcome you to attend as many times as you wish and at any stage during your pregnancy. Please wear comfortable clothing that you can move and relax in. Bring along a large towel and a notebook + pen.
