with Emma

Postnatal yoga is the perfect way to reconnect to your body after giving birth; helping to strengthen your pelvic floor and rebuild core awareness.

 

You will be guided through a series of safe and gentle yoga poses, paired with deep breathing to rebuild strength in the body and ease out any tension. The class always finishes with a relaxation to calm and re-energize mums' for the rest of the day.

 

It is a great opportunity to meet with other local mums and discuss common concerns as well as engage with your baby by sharing your postnatal yoga class.

 

Feel free to nurse, bounce, feed and walk around as needed. The class is open to mums 6 weeks post birth or 10 weeks post caesarean birth, (if you are less than 6 or 10 weeks and would like to attend, please contact us directly.) Yoga mats and props are provided but please bring a muslin or blanket for baby to lie on.

Real Birth's Practical Hypnobirthing Course
with Sakina
Saturday
2nd October
1:00-6:00pm

Join Sakina Ballard from Real Birth Project for the Practical Hypnobirthing Course.

 

Hypnobirthing often brings up various images in the mind. In reality, it is made up of practical tools and techniques that can support you feeling emotionally calmer and allow the physical process of birth to unfold more smoothly. It is evidence based information and choices that equip you to make decisions that feel right for you.

 

This course covers all hypnobirthing techniques to support you emotionally and physically through birth and is designed to put you at the center, equipping you for birth, so you feel confident and calmer with options, tools and information.

 

It is a perfect accompaniment to a separate antenatal education course, e.g. NCT, or as a stand alone practical birth preparation for you and your birth partner, designed to guide you in a non-judgemental way for wherever and however you birth.
