Active Birth Evening Workshop 1 - Understanding Birth
Workshop 1 – Understanding birth and Optimal Foetal Positioning
In this workshop you will gain a clear understanding of the different stages of labour and how to recognise them. You’ll learn how your baby’s position in the womb impacts on length and progress of labour.
We’ll also be practising birth positions, working out which feel most comfortable and how your partner can best support you in them. We’ll practice techniques to create space in the pelvis and how you can help baby to turn into a more favourable position. We’ll take a close look at the pelvis and understand how movement and gravity help during labour and birth.
How the body works in labour, and why you can have confidence in trusting that your body is designed to give birth safely.
How to prepare your body to give you the best possible chance of a positive birth.
Understanding of what needs to happen during labour so you feel more able to make wise decisions about what is right for you and your baby.
To apply Active Birth principles to your pregnancy and labour, whether you choose to give birth at home or in hospital.
