About the Event
Your Incredible Birthing Body.
Caring for your body through labour and birth.
Practical skills to make giving birth easier.
Birth. Don’t just wing it.
Give yourself the best chance to give birth in a way that feels good to you.
Learn how to make giving birth easier for your baby and more gentle for your body.
We have the very experienced Alicia Davidson, a midwife, lactation consultant and parent, from MumsMilk to come and talk about skills to set you up for breastfeeding success.
Alicia will discuss the practicalities like positioning for effective breastfeeding and skin to skin cuddling benefits. Also the idea of mentally preparing for this new skill and commitment of feeding your baby, in a similar way your are preparing for your labour and birth.
We will cover other practical skills for labour which include-
- Specific movements to support the different stages of labour.
- Partner skills to help your body to release and relax.
- Pushing techniques to help protect your perineum.
- When to go to hospital and how to navigate the hospital system whilst in labour.
- Preparing for life after birth - setting yourself up for healing and recovery during the fourth trimester.
- Preparing your heart and mind for the long hours involved in successful breastfeeding.
Birth and early motherhood are inherently physical experiences. It’s vital you care for your body, whilst giving birth and caring for your baby. The way you give birth is influenced by your physiology, your hormones, how safe you feel, the ability of your body to let go of tension, and the way you move your body. The way you give birth will impact your postpartum experience and well beyond into motherhood.
Set yourself up to feel respected, supported and held during birth.
Bring awe and reverence to your incredible birthing body.
Feel nurtured and nourished as you journey into motherhood.
We want you to leave birth with a healthy baby, as a healthy mama, with a body that heals, and a very full heart.
Your Incredible Birthing Body workshop will help you learn what needs to happen in your body for your baby to be born. And what you can do to best support the birth process, for your body and your baby.
Taught by Sue Lee and Sophie Jeffries - two doulas, bodyworkers, movement professionals, birth nerds, and fierce supporters of Mothers.
