While the Active birth yoga classes and Active Birth Workshop are an effective way of learning and practising, pregnancy and birth remains an entirely personal experience for the mother and her birth companions. We believe that there comes a time when a mother is best served in a one-on-one relationship with an experienced Childbirth Educator. Your private session is tailored to meet your specific needs.
This hands-on practical childbirth session is an excellent refresher class or complement to your antenatal classes in hospital. Couples leave feeling relaxed and confident that they have practical skills to meet any of the emotional or physical challenges that labour may bring.
Reasons you may prefer a private session are:
- The dates of the Active Birth group workshops are not suitable
- You live a distance away from our regular yoga classes or workshops
- You do not like learning in a group situation
- You have special needs. This might include a high profile public lifestyle, previous traumatic birth experience, special family circumstances, lack of support or medical issues
- You prefer one-on-one learning environments.
A private session is generally 3 hours in length. The tuition cost for a session during working hours is $110/hr. Evening sessions are limited and are offered upon request.
Active Birth Private : It is recommended to do a 3 hour private session for you and your partner to learn the Active Birth skills for labour as well as covering the different birth stages. The Active Birth skills include breathing and relaxation skills, massage and acupressure techniques and Active Birth positions for 1st and 2nd stages, stages of labour, and transferring from home to hospital.
