Are you currently pregnant with your first child and looking to enter labour feeling calm, relaxed and fear-free?

Are you pregnant with a subsequent child and looking to follow a different birth plan?​

Our Active Birth Workshops are run by Brisbane's leading Prenatal Yoga teacher Miriam Van Doorn. With over 25 years of teaching experience (and a beautiful child of her own) Miriam whom is also a qualified Doula will guide you and your birth partner through a practical workshop filled with practice, discussions and active participation preparing you for birth - exploring how the labouring woman might want to move, position herself and breathe, and how her birth partner can make that easier and more comfortable for her. Women and their birth partners are shown practical ‘tools’ for working with pain in labour including touch, movement and massage preparing you for birth.

In this small group educational class we'll explore how both the labouring mother and birth partner can work together to use mind-body techniques throughout the labour process. This 4.5-hour interactive workshop will include:

Understand the physiological processes of birth and how the pelvis, uterus and the body’s wonderful symphony of hormones are perfectly designed to birth your baby.

Dispelling fears around birth including setting intentions and using positive affirmations.

The role of the support person in an active birth (and how they can help reinforce the techniques learned).

Who is welcome to attend?

What stage of pregnancy should I be in?
Most women attend this workshop in their third trimester so the techniques are fresh in their mind, however please feel free to attend from your second trimester on. We would not recommend booking within 3 weeks of your due date in case your baby decides to come a little early!

A lunch break is provided, please bring a yoga mat for yourself and your partner, 2 cushions, water bottle and snacks
