Active Birth Classes

Active Birth Classes

 

Our Active Birth class runs for 90 minutes and includes a presentation regarding:

The stages of labour, what to expect physically and how to use your body efficiently to work with labour rather than against it, how and when to conserve energy – saving both your physical and mental energy until when you need it most, strategies to optimise positioning to utilise gravity to your advantage and also circumstances when you may need to position yourself differently to slow things down, the role of breathing and how it can be manipulated in different stages of labour, the role of physical and mental distraction, visualisation and vocalisation to reduce pain and manage one contraction at a time, practical tips to assist partners in supporting their labouring partner, with emphasis on positions of support (utilising fit-balls, pillows) and massage theory and practical use of TENS for labour, with hands on use of FreeMOMs TENS unit.
