What The Real Birth Workshop Is All About
The Real Birth Workshop was created through the belief that all expectant parents should have access to positive birth information. It is beneficial for pregnant mums and their birth partners to have positive help with their birth preparation. We support all birthing choices because we believe in empowering you with the right information when you need it.
Birth preparation is really important. It should help you feel confident in your abilities and the decisions that you make about your labour and birth. Our antenatal workshop is delivered by Heather, a practising midwife and trained birth educator. Heather will ensure the workshop is fun, informal and informative, and will talk you through your options and help with your birth preparation and birth plan.
What To Expect
We will take you on a step by step journey of how our bodies birth our babies. There are amazing physical, hormonal, and emotional processes our bodies work through during labour and birth.
Our aim is to help you to understand more about the physiology behind birth and labour. Learning how competent and incredible your body is can help you feel confident and relaxed through the stages of birth. We will teach practical skills for you and your birth partner so they feel comfortable in their role. These can be used during late pregnancy, labour and birth to help you feel calm and in control.
The information we use is taken from evidence-based practice and has been written to promote a positive and holistic approach to your birth.
