Together in Birth (Dec 2023)
Date: 2 & 3 December
Sat & Sun
1pm – 6pm
Empower yourself with the tools you need to get the birth you want!
We bring together internationally-respected birth approaches to help you physically and mentally prepare for birth! We will cover:
Birth anatomy and physiology, and what happens during labour & birth
Understand the role of hormones play
Spinning Babies® Birth Preparation Class for ease in pregnancy and comfort in labour
Body Ready Method® assessments for your unique body
Birth Cartography® to help you create a Birth Map to get your voices heard!
We are the first in Singapore to offer these THREE amazing modalities in ONE seamless programme.
The programme will be facilitated by Wonder Births Birth Doulas who are also Childbirth Educators, Movement Educators and Prenatal Yoga Teachers, and is designed for expectant parents who are looking to enrich their experience of labouring and birth. Comprising both theory and practicum, our teaching methodology will be practice-led, evidence-based and trauma-informed - this means that you will be receiving the latest up-to-date research on birth practices and from active birth workers in the field.
Over the 2 days together, we will take a deep dive into:
applied anatomy & childbirth physiology
postural & gait assessments to move and feel better during pregnancy and labour
tailored exercises, partner-assisted myofascial releases and manoeuvres
the role of hormones and the psyche on your birth
knowing your birthing options and mapping your birth to get your voices heard
understanding birth supports & interventions, from pain relief to inductions
