At yogababy we are committed to couples having positive birth experiences. This childbirth education workshop explores practical ways to assist the labouring woman at birth. It is acknowledged that the birth experience can be greatly enhanced if her partner/support team* understand the rhythm of labour.  

It covers techniques not taught in other antenatal education classes, focusing on an undisturbed physiological birth and describes the benefits of an Active birth. The attention is on the partner'sparticipation during the labour and how the birth itself is as much a team effort as the conception. This workshop complements hospital or other classes, and is also an excellent refresher for parents.

These workshops are lead by Yoga teacher and Childbirth educator, Suzanne Swan.

We have been doing this work for fifteen years and what we have noticed time and time again is that when the partner is fully involved in the birth, working as a team together with the mother, she falls in love all over again, consolidating the family triad.
