Birth Preparation Courses in Stockport

My mums-only childbirth preparation classes are currently running in Heaton Moor. The church hall location is close to many areas of Manchester and Stockport. A 6 week course costs just £50.

MummyNatal classes can be helpful for every type of pregnancy and labour, including Caesarean sections. The activities include a range of relaxing movements to help baby move into their optimal birthing position, gentle exercises on and with the birth ball, practising meditations to use both during pregnancy and labour, try out active labour positions, discuss antenatal and pregnancy education, and enjoy time for you to focus on your bond with baby.

Anyone who books a course or workshop with me receives my ongoing online support throughout pregnancy and beyond, access to my confidential Facebook group for postnatal support, and a set of beautiful birth affirmation cards worth £5.00.

The skills you will learn during my courses can be used during any stage of pregnancy, as well as during labour or a section, and have a postnatal benefit too. Everything we do in our birth preparation class helps to build the mindset for a positive childbirth experience - no matter where and how you will be having your baby. The 6 week course is just for mums-to-be, but I also run sessions your birth partner can attend as well. Please click here for the Natal Birth workshops, which run in Stockport.

Our six week course for mums-to-be will guide you through:

- mindful breathing practise to keep you calm and focused during labour and birth

- exercises and positions for encouraging baby into the optimum birthing position

- managing labour pains or strong sensations from contractions or sections

- time for you to be present and focus on yourself

- time to strengthen your bond with baby

- learning how to use mantra, visualisation and walking meditations to help you feel calm and relaxed

- mindful birth ball movements to relieve tension

- unbiased pregnancy and childbirth education including hospital and home births, interventions and induction, Caesarean sections, water births, pregnancy physiology and coping with pain or strong sensations.

Essential information:

  • You will need an anti-burst birthing ball for this course Please check which size you require before you buy one. You also have the option of me providing you with a birth ball in your first class for £10 plus the course price.
  • Exercise mats will be provided. If you have your own non-slip exercise mat you are welcome to bring it with you.
  • You may wish to bring a cushion to help support your knees or ankles when we do some movements on the floor.
  • The 6 week course is for mums-to-be only. If you wish to attend a birth partner class these are held separately at weekends in Stockport and Mossley. They are taught in a block of 4 hours for small groups, or privately at your own convenience.
