Expecting Mums - Pre-natal Retreat

Next retreat: 8th - 10th September 2021

Take time out to nourish yourself before birth. A retreat for both you and your partner or birth support person. Be prepared for the birth of your new one while learning to nourish and care for yourselves. By having your bodies in balance, your pregnancy can be smooth sailing.

 

Learn hands-on techniques of how to effectively support a woman during different stages of labour with your birth support person. Bodywork during labour is quite unlike bodywork at any other time. Birth support partners will learn how to comfort the expecting mum while in labor, through breath, massage, labour positions and visualisation. Experience gentle yoga classes designed to empower you along your pregnancy journey, with yoga poses to strengthen your body and mind and to help baby move into a great position for birth.
