I CAN HELP YOU HAVE A POSITIVE AND EMPOWERING BIRTH

FAQ

When is the ideal time to do the Birth Rehearsal?

Anytime between 28- 40 weeks pregnant. If you’ve done any Independent Childbirth Education, this workshop is a perfect refresher and a chance to practise birth tools before your baby’s birth- day. 

How can you "rehearse" for birth when it's so unpredictable?

This workshop will give your partner hands- on practical tools and techniques to use during your labour- no matter what turn your birth takes.

What if my partner can't come? Or I'm a single mum?

You’re welcome to come on your own but we recommend bringing either your doula, mother, sister, best friend – whoever you feel will best support you throughout your pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

Is Birthing with Confidence only for couples who want a natural birth?

Absolutely not! We’ll discuss how your partner can support you in different scenarios such as medical induction and caesarean birth.

What should we wear?

Clothes that are stretchy, comfy and make you feel good. Layering is best in case you get hot or cold. Socks will keep your feet warm in our relaxations. Whilst chairs are available, there will be times where we’ll sit on the floor or practise some positions for labour and birth so leave your jeans and mini skirts at home.

Your question hasn't been answered?

“When a woman feels confident in her body, well supported and able to express herself without inhibition, the pain becomes just one part of the process, and something that she can respond to instinctively with resources such as breath, sound and movement”

– Sarah Buckley
