My Antenatal Group Classes take place in the format of half-day weekend workshops...and for this I have teamed-up with the lovely Doula Nadia Conroy from: Nadia- Birth Empowerment/ Dancing Mamas
Nadia & Liselotte
We are here to guide you towards:
A Healthy 3rd trimester
A Confident Labour & Birth
Joyful Early Days Of Parenthood
Welcome to the "Antenatal Workshop With Nadia & Liselotte"!
We believe in the importance of balanced and comprehensive antenatal education, not only focussing on "labour & birth" but we also like to help you live a healthy pregnancy and postpartum.
We will work our way through topics from "healthy life in late pregnancy" to "how can I settle my baby?", and everything in between... This means there is a lot to cover.... We invite all participants to join our interactive "Padlet". The Padlet provides you with links to Midwife Liselottes' ebook chapters, videos and back-up information. (No need to take any notes during our workshop!) And, because Padlet is an interactive platform that stays accessible to you after the workshop , you have the opportunity to reach out to us there and ask us questions or add comments.
Our vision is to merge the skills, knowledge and wisdom of the ancient art and profession of midwifery and doula practices to support those birthing in this modern age.
The workshops are designed for pregnant people and their birth partners, we will include plenty of tips, advice and support for birth partners.
We provide a mix of theoretical information and practical exercises.
We will work our way through questions / topics like:
How your body & baby are getting ready for labour, birth & beyond (Yes, nature does most of the work for you!!!)
Mental & physical preparation for labour, birth & beyond (What you can do to give nature a little hand)
The importance of building your support network, why it is so important and how to do this.
What is labour, how to recognise it and what to do next?
How to time contractions and when to go to the hospital or call your midwife?
What happens when we get to the hospital?
Coping methods and pain relief options
what happens after your baby is born?
We will include circle moments, breathing & relaxation techniques, pelvic floor exercises, exercises to help baby in best position for birth, pregnancy dance & movement, time for lunch and & plenty of chats.
We will get moving and exploring to see how different labour ease methods and comfort tools might help you during labour. Like for example: positioning, rebozos, birthing balls, controlled breathing using a "winner flow"
*Costs: €150 per couple
Note: check with your health insurance provider, you may be covered for a refund on antenatal classes.
Please feel free to be in touch if you require any further information.
*When is a good time to join our workshop?
Ideally somewhere between your 26th - 35th pregnancy week, but slightly earlier or later is possible too.
To anyone who wished to engage and look after their well-being in pregnancy and start building their "village" of support and community, we can highly recommend joining Nadia's "pregnancy Wellness Sessions" which are suitable for all stages of pregnancy:
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you and bump on this birth preparation workshop and supporting you at this massively important time in your life.
