Empowered and Supported in Labour
Have you been dreaming of a natural labour?
Research shows that having your partner or other support person with you in the delivery room can relieve anxiety as well as decreasing pain levels during labour.
Partner massage during pregnancy and labour can improve relationships and bring couples closer together.
PLUS – Massage helps your partner know exactly what to do when contractions start, making massage comforting rather than intrusive.
So, how does it work?
Massage during labour blocks the pain impulses from reaching the brain and releases endorphins – the body’s natural “pain-killer”.
With a partner confident in giving massage – you can feel less intense pain, increased relaxation and decreased feelings of anxiety during pregnancy AND labour!
In this hands-on training, you will discover:
* Hands on massage skills for common pregnancy aches
* How to empower your partner with “Contraction Distraction” in labour
* How to create calm using essential oils safely during labour
* How to access the right support for you and your family
What to bring: Yourself, your birth partner or support person, an open mind and a positive attitude!
What to wear: Loose comfortable clothing is recommended. During this session you will be moving around and trying different massage techniques from a range of positions, from kneeling to standing. We want you to be as comfortable as possible. If mobility is an issue for you, don’t worry. We will tailor the techniques to suit you and your abilities.
Cost: $190 per couple (incl GST)

Thanks Laura.” Tara, Mum-To-Be
