Preparing for the Marathon of Birth

This fantastic workshop aims to prepare you for birth and beyond unlike most traditional birth preparation workshops. It will prepare your mind and body for the marathon it is about to undertake (and we wouldn’t do a marathon without being physical and mentally prepared!).


Your body is changing and adapting to bring your precious new baby into the world and it’s so important that it is conditioned/strong and able to withstand the added stress on your joints and muscles. Not only that, we want you to recover well following birth and this workshop will set you in good stead for that.


We will provide you with lots of information on how to keep active during pregnancy; safe muscle-strengthening exercises; active birth preparation; how to eat well & keep hydrated in pregnancy; tips on how to relieve some of the aches and pains of pregnancy such as backache, PGP, and carpel tunnel syndrome.
