Labour, Birth, and Early Parenting.
We want you and your partner to feel prepared and excited for labour and birth, and your parenting journeys.
From December onwards our workshops will be face-to-face and we can’t wait.
Located on Sydney’s Northern Beaches at Phoenix Recovery Centre in Brookvale. It is conveniently located with plenty of parking and just a short walk to Warringah Mall to make grabbing a yummy lunch in the break easy.
Light refreshments for morning and afternoon tea will be provided on the day.
We at Birth Circle want you and your partner to feel prepared and excited for labour and birth, not afraid or fearful.
We understand that birth can impact mothering, so want you to be educated, prepared to make informed decisions and to have a positive experience.
We know the benefits of feeling well supported during labour, so will provide your birth partner with everything they need to be the best support for you. You will learn evidence based techniques for working with pain such as movement, massage, breathing, acupressure, etc.
Sharing the experience of becoming a parent and having a support network in place is so important – so we want to create a space for you to connect with like-minded people to create this network.
We know the benefits of being ‘in circle’ for sharing and learning and look forward to being able to offer this workshop face-to-face in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. But until then, we will be offering our labour, birth and parenting workshop over two half days, in a virtual circle via Zoom.
You and your partner will walk away feeling excited and well equipped for your labour and upcoming journey as a parent.
