Sunday 6th November, 11am-2.30pm.
£55 per couple, hosted by Dawn Lister and Clare Finch
Bring a friend or birthing partner and gain knowledge, confidence, and expertise on how to support the pregnant person throughout pregnancy, and labour.
Dawn Lister together with her colleague Clare Finch will be running a workshop for pregnant people and their birth partners.
The workshop will demonstrate techniques for movement, breath work, connection, sequences for postural alignment and stretches. It will also include partner work, suggested massage techniques to alleviate discomfort during pregnancy and labour and tips around connection and breath work during early labour.
We will be drawing upon our extensive experience as mothers, we have birthed 5 children between us. And wellness experts. Both Dawn and Clare are bodyworkers, between us offering therapeutic massage, pregnancy massage and cranial sacral therapy, yoga, mindfulness, hypnotherapy and relaxation.
The workshop is practical, teaching you about the importance of movement, positioning, holds and tools to help your partner throughout both pregnancy and birth, whilst keeping yourself safe and supported. We discuss the importance of surrendering to the process of birth, after all your body is made to birth. And how to do this.
Followed by a gentle yoga class suitable for pregnant people, a yoga nidra and a question and answer session.
There will be a break with tea and cake and time to chat to other pregnant people.
There are only 8 spaces in this workshop, i.e. 4 couples.
Please bring a swiss ball (ideally 65cm) and wear comfy loose clothing.
