Pre and Postnatal Laughter Yoga
All about the oxytocin, love & connection
Pregnancy, birth and the early days of child rearing can be very scary and stressful and is important that as parents we look after our emotional as well as physical wellbeing.
Laughter Yoga releases a cocktail of positive hormones into our bodies, including oxytocin and endorphins which are essential for a positive and smooth birth experience. Following your baby's birth, these hormones help with bonding, mental wellbeing and with milk production if breastfeeding.
Look out for Birthscapes Wellbeing courses, workshops and taster sessions as well as my Laughing Lasses events held within the North East, UK.
Please contact me with any queries that you may have.
Simple and Effective Practices to protect and preserve parental mental health & wellbeing
Beyond Birth is a Mindful group for you as a new parent. It is designed to be the weekly tonic you need to keep your life in balance. Each session is designed to ease the transition into parenthood.
You will be guided to explore your identity as a parent and to connect with yourself, your baby and your loved ones.
Beyond Birth ensures that you take your time to nurture yourself as well as your baby. You will be able to trust in your instincts and to reach out for help when required.
Before Birth Mindful Wellbeing and Positive Birth Preparation
Laying the path for a positive journey
I have combined my skills and knowledge as a hypnobirthing and positive birth educator along with my training as a Before Birth Practitioner to bring you a truly wonderful course delivered as part of a group or on a 1:1 basis.
You will take time each week to gather with other expectant mums, connect with your baby, have the opportunity to share and be heard, you will be led through truly nourishing and deeply relaxing self-care exercises and we will discuss some key topics in relation to wellbeing and preparing for a positive birth (whatever kind of birth you may be hoping for).
Informative and Transformative
Each month I will run taster sessions so that you can find out about how Birthscapes can help you at whatever stage of pregnancy or early parenthood you may find yourself.
Taster sessions will cover the course content and will provide you with useful information and exercises that you can take away and implement to support you as you approach the birth of your baby or as you get to know your baby and parent on a daily basis.
Monthly webinars welcome guest speakers to discuss the topics of birth, parental transitions, healing, perinatal mental health, parenting & self-care.
