Birth Preparation Courses for Expectant Mums

My mums-only childbirth preparation classes are located close to Ashton-under-Lyne/Oldham, Manchester and Stockport, courses are currently running in Heaton Moor, in Denton and in Mossley.

MummyNatal classes use mindfulness-inspired exercises that 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 and mantra to use both during pregnancy and labour, antenatal and pregnancy education, and time for you to be present and focus on your bond to baby. The skills you will learn can be used during any stage of pregnancy and everything we do in a 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 Partner workshops, which run in Mossley and 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

- practical pregnancy and childbirth education

We share unbiased information about:

Essential information:

  • You will need an anti-burst birthing ball for this course Please check which size you require before you buy one. 5ft 8in or under in height = 65cm ball, 5ft 9in or taller = 75cm ball. You also have the option of me providing you with a birth ball in your first class for £10 plus the course price.
  • You may wish to wear soft, loose clothing so you are not feeling restricted during any activity or movements.
  • Exercise mats will be provided. They are standard 3mm mats, if you require a thicker one please let me know. 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.
