I am a Daisy Birthing antenatal teacher and Baby Yoga teacher working across Bromsgrove, Redditch and surrounding areas of Worcestershire. I have two young children and have experienced both hospital and home births. I am also a Doula and Breastfeeding Support Worker. I am currently also the Chair of the Maternity Services Forum for Worcestershire.

I am passionate about birth, babies and mums! I believe in mothering the mother throughout pregnancy, birth and beyond and want every mum to have the best possible birth journey they can have.

Active Antenatal™ Classes with Daisy Birthing: Bromsgrove & Redditch

Are you looking for pregnancy yoga? Are you a mum-to-be who likes the idea of pregnancy yoga but worry you are not stretchy enough? Are you drawn to hypnosis for birth but want to remain mobile during your labour? Do you love the idea of an active birth but have never squatted in your life?

Our all inclusive Active Antenatal™ method is a ground breaking, effective and all encompassing pregnancy class helping you to learn your antenatal education and active birth techniques in a truly effective way – anchored to your breath, your body and your movement – exactly where you will need it on your baby’s birthing day.

Each class will deliver:
• Traditional antenatal education
• Active birth awareness
• An easy way to understand medical induction and interventions
• Flowing movement sequences anchored to your body and breath
• Breathing techniques for every stage of labour
• Relaxation techniques
• Peer-to-peer support in a women only class

Classes can be started from 14 weeks of pregnancy and are taught over a six-week term.
Women can do as many terms as they wish until baby is born.
We are supportive of all birth choices.

Unlike traditional pregnancy yoga, in which you will likely be focussed on strength, tone and muscle, we believe preparing your body for a confident childbirth, rather than focussing on fitness during pregnancy, is a far more effective birth preparation strategy. By learning to flow through movements rather than hold postures, relax rather than build core strength and to release rather than stretch, you can enjoy a positive pregnancy and prepare your body, baby and mind for a confident birth!

Daisy Birthing teachers are all FEDANT registered.

Couples Active Birth Workshop with Daisy Birthing

The couples workshop is designed for both mum-to-be and their chosen birth partner - that can be baby's Dad, mum-to-be's mum, sister or friend of even a Doula! Depending on numbers, it may be possible you to bring along baby’s Dad and a female birth companion (ie a Doula) who may both be attending your birth. Please let me know asap if this is something you may want to do.

The workshop covers:
• Knowing when to move and when to relax and how birth partner can help
• Baby's positioning and how we can help that in weeks up to birth and during labour
• Stages of labour - what's happening when
• 3 rules of Active Birth
• Movement, breathing and visualisation for each stage of labour
• Massage techniques, reebozo sifting and other tools for labour (I demo these you don't do them on each other in the class - I may need one mum volunteer for a couple of the techniques but nothing embarrassing I assure you)
• Water in labour
• Birth plans/birth environments
• And anything else you or your partner want to ask about*!

It's a typical workshop environment, chatting through all these areas in a relaxed atmosphere. It gives your birth partner a chance to ask all the questions they have and help them be more prepared for the birth.
