Daisy Birthing classes
A weekly antenatal class for expectant mums to help you enjoy pregnancy, stay mobile, learn about your changing baby and body and prepare for a confident birth.
When it comes to the early (or in fact any) stage of pregnancy, any number of emotions can overwhelm us: excitement, fear, anxiety, delight, uncertainty, confusion – and these may well be ever changing! Daisy Birthing helps expectant mums enjoy a positive pregnancy and prepare for a confident birth. The first step of your continuous perinatal support takes the best elements of pregnancy yoga, active birth and hypnobirthing and wraps all of these together in a powerful class that allows you the confidence that comes from realising you can do this.
Daisy Birthing classes are for expectant mums only, are suitable to attend from 14 weeks pregnant right up until baby’s birth and are adapted to suit all pregnancy related conditions and birth plans with ease.
Classes are booked in blocks of 6 weeks at a time but are designed to carry you through from early pregnancy right up until your baby’s birthing day. Each class is 1-hour 30 mins long and costs £72 for the 6 week term.
Your antenatal class is held in Bury St Edmunds on a Thursday evenings at 7:30pm throughout the year, with new participants joining us at the beginning of each 6-week block. Full venue details will be available upon booking.
Daisy Active Birth Workshop
A workshop for mum and her birth companion that will not only cover all of the basics of antenatal education and an active, informed birth but also give you both the space to prepare as a team and confidently plan for your baby’s birthing day.
When it comes to preparing for your baby’s birth – making the time to prepare as a team with your birth partner in a way that works for you both and your own unique hopes can be challenging. The Daisy Birthing Active Birth Workshop helps expectant mums and their birth companion prepare for an active and confident birth together. This second step of your continuous perinatal support takes the best elements of traditional antenatal education workshops and hypnobirthing and wraps all of these together in a powerful 5 element model that allows you the confidence that comes from realising you can both do this.
The Daisy Birthing Active Birth Workshop is for expectant mums and their birth companion. They are suitable to attend from around 30 weeks pregnant right up until baby’s birth and are adapted to suit all pregnancy related conditions with ease.
Workshops are delivered in one 4-hour session at a cost of £70 per expectant Mum and her Birth Companion.
