Birth Preparation: Yoga for Labour

  • Yoga Place E2 1st Floor, 449-453 Bethnal Green Road London E2 9QH UK (map)

Every woman is different, every pregnancy is different and no birth is the same. So how to prepare for labour, birth and beyond?

In this workshop, we will playfully and mindfully explore options to meet labour and birth in an empowered and individual way. The workshop caters to the needs of both the mother-to-be and the (birth) partner.

We will talk about stages of labour and birth and what possibilities there are to meet them with breath and sound, resting positions and movement, visualisations and affirmations, relaxation and meditation – and why and when these can be useful. By changing roles, partners will get the chance to feel into what it is like to give as well as receive support. In short: we’ll have some fun together. As an induced labour is a possibility, we will also touch upon the different dynamics of a natural birth vs an induced birth and how to be present with the different challenges they hold.

Any questions around birth are welcome because they enrich the fabric of the workshop and make it specifically relevant to those attending.

My intention as the space holder is to empower and support you in the choices you make regarding the birth of your baby. I share information but refrain from giving advice as I am aware that it is not my place to tell you what is best for you. I am looking forward to working with you!
