Bend + Breathe

Our mindful birth workshop offers empowering, yet practical tools to give you confidence going into your birth. Using our training as yoga and hypnobirthing instructors, we aim to give you an ‘essentials kit’ that can be used before, during and after birth.

 

As midwives we see the benefit that both yoga and hypnobirthing can bring and recognise that both of these practices are relevant to all pregnancies and every type of birth, regardless of how or where you have your baby. This unique midwife-led workshop offers the chance to learn and practice some fundamental yoga and hypnobirthing techniques.

 

We ensure a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere and all are welcome!

 

Our two hour workshop includes:

  • Yoga positions for birth

  • Hands on tips for birth partners

  • Practical advice for coping at home

  • Movement for labour and birth

  • Breathing exercises for labour

  • Writing birth affirmations

  • Relaxation scripts and how to use them

Where - No. 11 Brunswick St., Edinburgh

1:1 sessions

Our 1:1 sessions are the ideal time to prepare for the arrival of your baby in the comfort of your own home. Our pregnant people and their birth partners choose this option for a number of reasons, whether it be because you can't make the group classes, concerns around COVID, or simply to have the full attention of two midwives to ask questions to and learn. Whatever the reason, 1:1 sessions are a great option!

What can you expect from our 1:1 sessions?

  • 4 hours of birth preparation including elements for labour, birth and after baby arrives

  • Content tailored to each pregnant person and their birth partner (discussed prior to session)

  • Full attention of both of us

  • We will meet with you wherever you feel most comfortable

1:1 sessions are booked to meet your individual needs, so get in contact to have a chat about what dates work for you!
