Breathe For Birth

Breathe for Birth is the seamless integration of our signature Yoga for Pregnancy and Birth with inspiring and on-point childbirth education. Breathe for Birth is all about consciously connecting with your child; learning practical ways to move and breathe - to lean into the intensity of childbirth; to help you birth with dignity and grace in any setting. 

Each week we will explore the lush and lovely entwining of movement and breath, enriched with deep-guided relaxation and reassuring imagery to help you lean into the intensity of labour.

"I am very happy to announce the safe arrival of my baby boy.

My induction was booked but my boy decided to come a day early. Very happy to share I had a spontaneous labour and a drug free quick birth (though very intense). I went from mild cramping when I woke up at 7 30 AM to contractions 5 mins apart at 9 30 AM. I dilated so quickly and the contractions were on top of each other that we had to call an ambulance! I thought I was going to birth at home and the paramedics thought I was going to birth mid way to the hospital. But no, we made it to the hospital safely and my boy arrived at 12 33 PM. 

And I gave birth in the Goddess position. Because labour was so intense, I couldn't get into any other position including squatting. I cannot thank you enough for teaching me the Goddess position! It was just what I needed for this labour.

I don't know what brought on my labour as I tried many things in desperation but can definitely say - walking, crawling on all floors and the prenatal yoga helped immensely - all the things you taught me

Another positive birthing experience! Huge thanks to you!!"
