We're re-launching our signature Together in Birth programme together with Wonder Births with 4 hours of both theory and practicum on getting the body and psyche ready for labour and birth! This re-launch promises to be be more hands-on, with a sharing of evidence-based techniques to progress labour and ease birth.
This special 4 hour workshop - facilitated by Birth Doulas, Childbirth Educators and Prenatal Yoga Teachers Rowena Bai and Dewi Chen - is for all expectant parents who are looking to enrich their experience of labouring and birth. The workshop will cover basic fundamentals of birth physiology, and the practical tools and exercises to make birth physically, mentally and emotionally more easeful for birthing persons and their partners. These tools look into maternal positioning, foetal positioning, comfort measures, as well as breathwork, meditation and visualisation techniques.
Some of the questions we will explore together through theory and practice are:
- What happens during labour?
- How can we prepare the birthing body for labour and birth?
- What maternal positions will enable labour to progress?
- What are comfort measures and how do they help?
We will end the segment with partner yoga exercises to build trust, strength, connection, and affection - qualities that will be helpful to invite into the birthing suites and beyond!
𝐈𝐧𝐯𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭: $250 per couple (early bird till 1 May) $280 per couple (regular rate)
Class size will be kept small to facilitate discussion and learning.
Who is this for?
For expectant mothers in their 2nd trimester onwards. It’s never too early to start!
Highly recommended for first time parents, or parents trying for a VBAC.
About the facilitators
It was after the birth of the second child that Rowena decided to do more in supporting women in their birth journeys, and subsequently embarked on her birth and postpartum doula training (DONA Int’l). She also received training in Spinning Babies and Optimal Maternal Positioning techniques. As a prenatal/postnatal yoga teacher, she looks to movement and mindfulness to prepare birthers for their journeys. Rowena counts her children and the women she serves as her teachers in birth and beyond.
Dewi Chen is trauma-aware Prenatal Yoga, Womb Yoga teacher, childbirth educator, birth and postpartum doula. She is obsessed anything related to female anatomy and geeks out at birth videos to unwind. She draws upon her training in Spinning Babies, Optimal Maternal Positioning and Prenatal Yoga to support birthing couples from #wombtoworld. She believes that the world can be made better if we do more to empower and support birthing couples.
