JANET BALASKAS ACTIVE BIRTH WORKSHOP©w/ Sue Boughton I.P.T.I, A.P.N.T
10th September, 1-7pm, £70 ppThe overall aim of the workshop is to help you to make informed decisions, enable you to trust your instincts and have confidence in your body’s ability to give birth. The focus of the workshop is on practical skills, deepening your knowledge of the physiology of labour and birth and giving your birth partner effective techniques to support you throughout your labour and birth.
This workshop is designed for pregnant women and their birth partners and pregnant women on their own. It’s preferable to be in your last trimester when taking the workshop but can be done earlier if necessary due to workshop dates. Sue also offers private sessions for people who aren’t available for the workshop dates.
You will learn practical skills to maximize your chances of having a natural birth, feel empowered and confident in your body’s ability to give birth and your partner will learn how to support someone in labour with massage and breathing techniques.
