Classes and Cost


The Mindful Birthing Course combines the teaching of traditional antenatal classes with mindfulness practice and the programme is currently offered on-line. Each class is 2.5 hours long and we will practice guided meditation such as sitting and walking meditation as well as mindful stretching/Yoga. You will learn about the normal physiology of labour with an emphasis on developing skills to work with pain. We will discuss positions in labour, pain relief, breast feeding and the baby cycle after birth as well as the neurological, biological, and emotional needs of the new born. In addition to guided meditation during the classes there is an expectation that participants practice guided meditation at home for 15-20 minutes a day, 6 days a week in order to fully gain the benefit of the course. The classes build one on the other in a structured way so it is important to make best effort to attend the full course. No prior meditation experience is required. The course can be taken at any stage in pregnancy but it is suggested to start the class no later than the 30th week of pregnancy and bring the person who will be supporting you at birth.

Advanced Childbirth Masterclass Course

This self-directed & self-paced online course is packed with over three hours of information of what happens to your body during labour and what you can do to help your baby 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'. We use a combination of keynote presentations, audio recordings, texts, and "live" practice sessions to help guide you into the world of childbirth preparation.

The course offers:

  • An introduction to mindfulness and how this skill can be helpful for the labouring woman
  • Pregnancy relaxation techniques
  • Guided meditation (downloadable to keep)
  • What happens to the body during the different stages/phases of labour
  • How to optimise the physiology of labour & birth to help achieve a normal birth
  • What you can do during pregnancy and in labour to help your baby birth vaginally, and understand the limitations to this too
  • Understand the physiology of pain/the three components of pain
  • How to work with pain using the mind
  • Pain practices using the breath and other tools to help you feel a sense of calm and focus at the peak of labour/contractions (downloadable to keep)
  • Induction of labour  
  • What happens immediately after birth
  • Breast feeding - how to avoid problems
  • The biological, neurological and emotional needs of the newborn baby.
