Preparing for Labour and Birth

About Preparing for Labour and Birth

8 hour (2 x half-day sessions) course focused on preparing for birth by understanding more about how that happens, and how yoga techniques can support you. (Includes birth partners, see below)

Course Content:
Information. Movement. Breath. Mindset.
Learn about the physical, physiological and emotional changes happening in your body during late pregnancy, labour and birth and yoga techniques you can use to support you during this time including breathing, movement, posture and meditative practices. Meet other pregnant people and practice in a small group with time for questions and discussion, include your birth partner in some sessions, no yoga experience necessary.
The focus is on preparing you to have an informed and positive birth experience regardless of the choices you make about the birth of your baby or the course that it takes.

Dates/Times:
8 hours in total - 2 half days on 2 consecutive Sunday afternoons: 23rd Feb and 1st Mar, 1.30 – 5.30pm.

Suitable for:
Pregnant people from 14 weeks onwards (and their birth partners welcome to attend with them for the second session on 1st Mar)

Venue:
The Wee Retreat, Myrtle Park, Crosshill, Glasgow
Total course cost: £75

Booking: https://slyoga.setmore.com/

Feedback from previous participants:
"Thank you so so much for the course it was so incredibly helpful, calming, fun and insightful and thanks to you I did get the calm peaceful birth I had been hoping for( albeit a little long...!!) [partner] found the partner session completely invaluable and it really showed as he stood and swayed and read scripts etc through the 30 plus hours. We were so glad we did it. Thank you!!”

“I strongly recommend Still Light Yoga for any pregnant ladies. I’ve been to two different lots of antenatal classes as well as NHS sessions and this is by far the best! A wonderful mix of science and yoga/hypnobirthing type stuff explained in a way that really makes sense and has made me feel 100% more confident about my pending second labour. Also very relaxed and generally enjoyable!”

About the teacher:
Susie studied medicine and later, psychology and has a background in mental health support and public health research. She is a registered yoga and pregnancy yoga teacher. She has two children and is a facilitator for the Positive Birth Movement.
