During labour, listen to, be patient and trust, your body will let you know what to do. I have found that while women draw heavily on the birthing skills we learn in the Active birth yoga classes, the one’s that cope well usually do more than what they have learned in class. They discover their own ways of adapting spontaneously to the increase of physical demand that active labour brings.
In August Suzanne travelled to Adelaide to teach an Active Birth skills workshop to Midwives, Physiotherapists and Yoga teachers. During the day we looked at the benefits of movement during labour, use of resting positions to aid relaxation and up right positions for progressing labour. The pregnant body is amazing in its capacity to know exactly what to do if we are able to manage our mind’s responses. Exploring the key concepts of mindfulness and pain management was an enjoyable part of the workshop.
