Join this intensive/refresher to help prepare your mind and body for labour, through tips, tales and practical stuff. We will practise many labour positions and provide ideas for what the birth partner can do to help. Learn about medical informed consent (and how to really get it ) so you both feel more control during the birth experience.

Topics include comfort measures that really work, practising positions for labour/birth, trying massage and comfort techniques, communicating effectively with each other and medical caregivers, strategies for avoiding unnecessary interventions. We squeeze over 35 years of experience being doulas into a 2 hour session of fun and movement.

Makes a great date!! Suitable for first-time couples or parents having their subsequent kids. No previous yoga experience necessary. Doulas and other support people welcome!

Wear comfy clothing, bring a water bottle, a pillow from home and a birth/physio ball if you have it.

Please contact to register.

Karen Herriot, childbirth educator, doula, breastfeeding counsellor and pre and post natal yoga instructor at Bodhi Tree Yoga as well as her doula partner Angie Evans.
