Empowering Practices for Expectant Parents

with Victoria Gill

Are you expecting and eager to prepare both your mind and body for the beautiful journey of childbirth? Join our transformative workshop, "Breathe, Move, Birth," designed exclusively for pregnant individuals seeking holistic and empowering preparation for childbirth.

This workshop will explore techniques that you as the birthing person can implement before and during labor to prepare both your mind and body. In this supportive environment, we will explore ways in which you might like to breathe, move, and subsequently birth.

Spaces are limited, so reserve your spot today and empower yourself with practical tools for managing pain and stress during labour. We can't wait to share this transformative experience with you!

$75 per Person.

A Holistic Approach to Childbirth Preparation

Breathwork, Vocalisation and Inner Strength

Child Birth
