Active Birth Workshop with Lara Dunlea Date: April 30th from 9 am to 2 pm.

Attending an Active Birth Workshop will help you and your birth partner to prepare physically, mentally and spiritually for a positive birth experience, whatever that means in your own unique circumstances.

In this fun, informative and empowering session, I share the insights and experience that I have accumulated during the more than 16 years that I’ve been learning about the factors that lead to positive birth. I draw this information from more than ten years as a pregnancy yoga teacher, my trainings and experience in GentleBirth and KGHypnobirthing, my work in the field of doula support and the passion for positive birth that was awoken within me through the life-changing experience of birthing my two beautiful children with confidence and trust.

Topics covered include:

The Role of the Birth Partner
Optimisation of the Birth Hormones
Comfort Measures for Labour
Acupressure Points for Pain Relief
Essential Oils
Birth Preferences
Active Management of Labour
Optimal Positions for Labour
Spinning Babies Techniques

Fee is €150. Mid-morning refreshments are provided.
