Birth Preparation workshops for women and their birth partners

 
“The workshop gave my partner and I the knowledge we needed to feel confident about our choices in labour & overcome our fears”
 
Although you cannot plan your labour, you can prepare for it. It is reassuring to learn that most women can experience labour and birth without complications however, an open minded approach to birth is essential. After attending a YogaBirth Workshop or Course, you will feel more confident about your ability to give birth normally. You will also feel prepared to make informed decisions and use medical support wisely should you or your baby need assistance.
