Antenatal Workshops

GentleBirth Workshops

GentleBirth workshops are unique birth preparation antenatal classes that include brain training techniques as well as a complete antenatal program. The class focuses on Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Sports Psychology and Medical Hypnobirthing along with practical tools, information and techniques to prepare for the most positive birth possible.


Our focus is preparing you for the most positive birth possible - no matter what comes your way on the big day

Gentlebirth classes are not just for couples planning an unmedicated birth but rather preparation for the birth you want, whatever your preferences may be. Building confidence in your mental and emotional resilience is learned and improves with instruction and practice. Understanding your options for navigating your birth preferences allows you to feel calm and in control. Learning advanced comfort measures and having a full toolkit of strategies is important for you and your partner. We discuss induction of labour, the stages of labour, how to cope with pain using hypnosis and mindfulness, how to stay home longer, when to go to the hospital, using the bath, ball, epidural and other comfort measures, how to breath well for the labour and the use of the winner flow.
