Are you pregnant and desiring a no-to-low intervention hospital birth for yourself and your baby?

And is your birth companion keen to learn how to best support you in this?

In this 4h interactive Workshop, I will teach you and your birth companion proven tools and concepts that supports the natural unfolding of labour & birth. 

The thing most women remember years after giving birth is HOW they were cared for during this huge time of transition.

Hence, the birth companion’s role is very important and can make a big difference to a woman in childbirth


Hi, I am Corinne...

And I’m an experienced and passionate Hong Kong based Doula & Prenatal Yoga Teacher.

 

As a Doula I want you to have an empowered birth which is a birth in which you feel respected, heard, involved and cared for. 

 

As Barbara Katz Rothman says: "Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers - strong, competent, capable, mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength." 

 

I am fully with her in that, and so I created this Workshop for you and your birth companion with the intention to support you in this. 


What to expect from joining this tailored Workshop?

After booking your private Workshop with me, we will first meet for a 60 minute Skype session where I will ask you some questions that will help me to understand how I can best support you.

 

Below are topics that we will cover during the workshop, but since each couple and each pregnancy is different, I do like to adapt the material, taking into account a couples individual needs and wishes and bring them into the workshop as far as this is feasible in 4 hours.

Generally, once we meet, I invite you and your birth companion (partner/husband/father/best friend/mother) to learn more about:

  • How a safe, caring, undisturbed and pleasurable birth ambiance supports you in relaxing into the process of childbirth,
  • How mother and baby can benefit from improved pelvic balance through daily exercise during pregnancy,
  • How upright positions and movement can shorten labour and lead you to seek less medical pain relief such as epidural analgesia,
  • Why birth positions such as being on all fours or squatting can be more comfortable and effective for you to give birth in, instead of lying on your back with legs in stirrups, 
  • How your birth companion can help you cope with labour pain by applying various non-medical comfort measures such as loving touch, hot/cold packs, hip-squeeze, positive encouragement etc.,
  • The importance of consent decision making in childbirth
  • Time to address specific questions/concerns/ that came up during our Skype Session.

Benefits of booking this tailored Workshop?

  • Learn about and get to practice different labour positions and movements together with your birth companion,
  • Equip your birth companion with ideas and tools he/she can use to support you during childbirth,
  • Create your personal birth ambiance wish-list and share and discuss it with your birth companion,
  • Feel confident, uninhibited and empowered to voice your needs and choices,
  • Leave with a summary of the Workshop content, so you can keep practicing the positions and non-medical comfort measures in your own home.
