This course is a one day workshop for the partners/support of pregnant person, giving practical and holistic support techniques on how to assist a pregnant person, pre, during and post birth.
Often but of course not always, during pregnancy the emotional labour of preparing for birth and parenthood can fall on the person carrying the child. Preparing and accommodating the body by researching pregnancy exercise, nutrition, yoga, birthing techniques, buying and paying for maternity clothes, researching cots, prams, parenting and sleep techniques, researching childcare, health care services, baby classes…the list is endless. This can be exciting but also overwhelming, stressful and emotionally draining. Sometimes the partner of the pregnant person can feel unsure of how to balance the equality so hopefully this course will help to do so.
We have had many queries and requests around birthing and prenatal support which is why this course has been devised.
There are currently many courses around solely for the pregnant person to attend and also for couples but currently almost none for the partner/support which is why this course is exclusively for you. In the future if there is demand this course could be extended to pregnant people.
This is taught by a qualified massage therapist with midwives guidance.
