Couples Breathing for Birth Classes 2020

Come along to my Couples Breathing for Birth Classes where both mum and dad-to-be can find out how the way in which we breathe during labour can make a big difference both mentally and physically.  These classes are a great chance for couples to connect together as they prepare for baby’s birth, and hopefully have a little fun, too.

In this one hour class, we will be getting in touch with our bodies and minds in preparation for labour and birth.  We will focus on our breathing and the ways in which it can help us during labour  – as an essential tool for relaxation in labour as well as the crucial role our breathing plays in helping us manage our contractions more effectively.

Breathing is the most natural thing in the world for us to do, and we breathe without even thinking that we are doing so.  Yet in labour it can be one of the most challenging parts – breathing regularly and effectively through contractions to help your uterus work as well as possible and giving you a way to stay in control of your labour can be hard work.  Through these classes, you’ll have the chance to focus just on your breathing for labour, and learn how you can use it to relax and prepare your mind for each stage of labour.

Combined together with other gentle relaxation techniques and massage, this one hour class should leave you feeling refreshed, more empowered and more in touch with your body.

It’s a great compliment to any other comprehensive birth preparation class you are doing or may do, and I encourage everyone to come to as many classes as they like to get the full benefit.

January 2020 Doula Cafe

Happy New Year!

The first Doula Cafe for 2020 will be on Tuesday 7th January from 10-11am at the Tokyu Plaza Starbucks in Harajuku.

The topic of this meeting will be Infant Care and Post-partum support.  We’ll go through any questions you may have about infant care in Japan, products, and options available to learn more, as well as post-partum support that you can utilise after your baby is born.

Also, if you are due to give birth from March onwards and are interested in having a doula support you and your husband during the labour, please come along or get in touch.  My schedule is already quite booked up for the first half of 2020 but there is some availability for me to take on 3 more clients.

Please send me an email if you plan to come!
