Hello beautiful pregnant mums,

Are you planning to birth naturally and yet you have learned unwelcoming stories about birthing that have created fear or doubt that may hinder your own birthing experience?  Do you want to learn techniques that can deepen your ability to relax, release fear and cope with birthing pain during labour?

Sounds familiar? Please read on as Mindful Birthing could just be the right tool to prep you to manage the giving birth to and parenting your next generation.

Why should you join this Mindful Birthing workshop?

This 4-hour workshop has been designed by Peggy Chiu (a certified HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator).  She will provide you with guidance and prep you with the previous life skill to managed the transformation in one of the most important, joyful and yet stressful jobs on the planet – that of giving birth to and parenting your next generation.

The workshop is a niche offering that has grown out of the need for women to educate themselves with knowledge, understanding and confidence of their rights to a conscious, natural and calm childbirth. It is created to guide women (and their partners or husbands) to expand their awareness of how the mind-body connection plays a key role in labour and how one can tap into this natural instinct to birth-in-awareness.

What will you learn in this two-part workshop?

The perception of fear and pain of a birthing mum, their effect on the mind-body connection during labour and how to remove fear in order to have an undisturbed physiological birth.
The importance of relaxation and different relaxation techniques including breathing, visualization and self-hypnosis.
Easy and effective alternative pain relief techniques and practice non-focused awareness.
Partner supported work such active birth poses, birth anchors and massages.
Explore energetic techniques to release fear or negative emotions related to birthing.
Learn daily essentials for pregnancy comfort and easier birth.
