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!
