This 2 Day workshop will enable you to SIGNIFICANTLY increase your chance of a normal or even natural birth. We will explore the amazing design of your body for birth and how you and your partner can optimise it to achieve a safe, satisfying and calm birth experience.
The workshop covers a wide range of tools to support your goals for birth, including how to enhance your body’s own anaesthetic release, as well as relaxation for birth techniques like HypnoChildbirth.
The Birthready Active Birth workshop will provide you with:
- a deep understanding of your body’s design for natural birth;
- practical approaches to maximising your capacity for a smooth and calm birth, including achieving deep relaxation for birth through HypnoChildbirth techniques;
- tools to increase the efficiency of your labour, dissolve your fear and enable you to work with your body;
- real birth support skills and techniques for partners to enhance your comfort and confidence to birth well.

PARENT AND BABY PROGRAM - Box Hill South
Thursdays 9:30am - 10:30am, 11:30am - 12:30pm and 1:30pm - 2:30pm
As a parent, you are your child’s first teacher. The Parent and Baby Program aims to support your growth, as well as providing a learning environment which supports your baby’s optimal physical and psychological development. As your awareness of your child’s capabilities grows, we aim to provide you with knowledge and tools which you can apply at home, assisting you to become the parent you want to be.
The program places a strong emphasis upon catering for your baby’s urge towards independence and has a profound trust in your child’s innate capabilities. This learning environment is based on the young child’s need for order, movement and language.
The program is also designed to offer practical support and encouragement to you as you parent your child.
We aim to offer you:
- clear awareness of your baby’s capabilities and how to support them;
- deep understanding of how your baby learns;
- useful information about your baby’s unique needs as they unfold;
- practical ideas to make life at home easier and more fun.
Come and join us for a complimentary Introductory session!
