Your Positive Birth Begins Here!
Thank you so much for checking out my page on the GentleBirth workshop that I run in Ballydesmond, Co. Cork. For me GentleBirth is the ultimate birth preparation programme that you can attend during pregnancy. Not only does it get you ready and maybe even a little excited about birth, but it also hugely benefits your birth partner, increases their confidence as they realise they have a really important job in supporting you on the day and what you learn will stand to you during parenthood.
I used GentleBirth during both of my pregnancies and it really helped me accept the birthing path that my babies took. Both were empowering experiences in their own way.
Since my first baby was born in 2016 I really delved into the birthing world as a Doula, GentleBirth instructor and specialising in maternity reflexology. It is truly an honour to support you during pregnancy, whether it is to help you to begin or further deepen your knowledge on the journey of pregnancy and into motherhood for the first or subsequent time.
The GentleBirth programme believes that a positive birth experience comes in many different forms from induction, drug free birth, medicated, cesarean, natural birth and so on. Birth by it’s very nature is unpredictable, but what you can control is your breath, your focus, your thoughts. The GentleBirth programme helps expectant mom’s and her birth partner to prepare for a positive, calm and confident birth, whatever path their birthing experience takes them on. A positive birth is defined by mom in a non judgmental way.
During the GentleBirth workshop you will learn practical hands on experience of different positions to labour in and comfort measures to use, the importance of having a full Labour Toolkit, knowing the key questions to ask your care provider and learn how and why to use the brain science behind GentleBirth ( Mindfulness, Hypnosis, Sports Pyschology, CBT). Attending a GentleBirth Workshop you can be guaranteed that the information provided to you is based on the latest evidence based research and care.
