Invite your birth partner to a one-off preparation class. A friendly, informative and hands-on session on natural pain management techniques and postures, for an active and positive birth experience.

A dedicated space for couples to rehearse movements and breathing techniques together, and help build confidence as a team before the big day.

During this 3 hour workshop, we will explore:

  •     simple and efficient relaxation techniques and posture
  •     breathing techniques for all birth scenarios and labour stages
  •     how your partner can support you practically and emotionally during labour
  •     visualisations, movements and pain relief techniques for contractions
  •     massage for labour, pressure points, birth positions and much more


Many tools and tips for pre & post labour will be shared, based on Maryline's 10 years experience of preparing couples for birth. The workshop will leave you and your partner feeling confident, inspired and excited at the prospect of giving birth.

Come with your partner, husband, mum, sister or anyone supportive.
