Hello, and Welcome to the website for Mindful Birthing

Here you can read all about the different childbirth classes offered, and learn more about the proven benefits of mindfulness

 



If you are looking for honest and 'what you need to know' childbirth preparation you have come to the right place! 

As a Professional Childbirth Educator and a Midwife I use elements from Hypnobirthing and Mindfulness to prepare parents-to-be for labour & birth. But ultimately my teaching is rooted in self care and realistic expectations that prepares not only the body, but also the mind for birth and parenting.

We offer Live on-line 
Antenatal Classes with Mindfulness Teaching and Private one-to-one Sessions using Zoom (it is not necessary to download zoom).

Mindfulness, as taught today, is a modern, non-religious practice that is accessible to everyone. Its practice can make us feel calm and improve our physical and mental wellbeing. The Mindfulness-Based Childbirth and Parenting course is offered over a 6 week period, and there is strong scientific evidence that a Mindfulness approach to childbirth preparation makes for a happy and positive birth experience.

If you prefer a self-directed and self-paced approach to childbirth preparation you can access the FREE online Bump to Birth Course that covers all about the difference stages of labour including the latent phase and what you can do to help baby birth:

If you would like a more comprehensive online course The Advanced Childbirth Masterclass Course may be for you. It is self-directed and packed with information, practical tools and breathing techniques to optimising the physiology of labour to support a straight forward normal birth. By the end of the course you will have a good understanding of the powerful Mind-Body connection and how you can learn to train the mind to work with the body... and not against it, which so often happens when fear 'takes over'. Pain and fear becomes manageable:

Whatever route you choose you will leave feeling empowered, confident, calm and fully informed and prepared to navigate the journey of labour and birth.

What is Mindfulness-Based Childbirth and Parenting?

 

The MBCP programme is intended to provide an introduction to mindfulness meditation practice and normal physiology of labour by way of:

  • Offering information on labour, birth, breastfeeding, the postnatal period and the social and emotional needs of the new baby
  • Understand the mind/body connection in childbirth and develop powerful skills to cope with the challenge of labour, birth and parenting

"With mindfulness practice the unpleasant sensation we call pain may still arise but we are no longer suffering - we are no longer wrapped around it, controlled by it" - Jack Kornfield
