Join Mikeala and Charlotte for a fun filled antenatal class where mindfulness, motherhood, prenatal yoga and research meet.
Our Mindful Birthing Antenatal Class offers a 1 day workshop designed in 3 sections to help ease your mind and prepare you and your partner mentally and physically for an AWESOME birth day.
We are located in the Brisbane West and Ipswich area.
The day offers a complete education for a mindful birth, taught by a midwife, birth educator and mum with a 1 hour prenatal yoga session at the end. Dad goes off to the pub for a beer and to learn how to support mum best during labour.
Do you feel calm and confident about your babies birth?
Do you feel prepared and able to make informed choices?
Do you feel scared? Worried? The words complications, distress and pain keep coming up over and over?
Create a positive birth experience for everyone involved. You, your partner and your baby. An experience where you have made every choice, every step of the way, an experience, where you are calm and in control.
