Event description

Description

Hampshire Hospitals Maternity Service invites you to attend a free 'Confident and Active Birthing Workshop’ to assist you to feel calm and confident during the birth process and to learn optimal positioning for labour and birth.

The two-hour antenatal classes offer you the chance to develop relaxation skills and other psychological techniques to help you to remain calm and in control. It also gives you the opportunity to try out different positions which will aid comfort in labour and aid the descent and birth of your baby. The sessions are open to you and your birth partner to attend.

These sessions are held in Andover, Basingstoke and Winchester hospitals, nine times a month.

You can choose which session you attend and it is suggested that this is between 28 and 32 weeks of your pregnancy to ensure you have time to rehearse the skills you learn before labour. However, if you have left it late in the day, we will still try to accommodate you.

During these sessions we will help you to understand the importance of your thought processes during labour and birth. We will explain the effect on your labour of stress and fear and how this hinders the birth process. We will help you to work with your body to help labour progress in a way that leaves you calm and in control, ready to welcome your baby into the world.

The techniques you learn in this workshop are life skills that you can return to time and time again. They are useful in many different situations.

At the end of this session you will receive a free MP3 download of the relaxation techniques used in the workshop and a reminder of the information that has been covered.

Following your attendence at a confident birthing workshop, you may wish to attend a hypnobirthing session. You will receive details of these classes after you have attended the Confident Birthing class.

All our practitioners are passionate about enabling women to prepare for a positive and calm birth experience. Birth partners are encouraged to attend, so that they can learn how to help create and support a positive birthing environment.

We look forward to working with you.

Hampshire Hospitals also offer a free 6 hour class that compliments our Confident Birth class.

This class explores the labour and birth journey, inclusive of all types of birth for women and their birth partners and the early postnatal period adjusting to life with a newborn baby. To book a place on this course, please follow this link;
