I am a certified teacher of this program currently seeking couples willing to participate online for a period of 9 weeks. The course also includes a retreat style day of practice. If you would like to know more about the course, or have questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

This program is you if you would like to practice and cultivate mindfulness skills in a group context, during class and in between sessions. The purpose of the training is to see for yourself what happens/changes when you commit to a regular mindfulness practice.

Mindfulness cultivated during pregnancy has benefits in stress reduction (and alot more) and developing the ‘habit of mindfulness’ means that you already have inbuilt tools and resilience, by the time you reach the transition of labour and parenting beyond.

You will have a shared language and perspective to support your relationship to begin (or continue) your parenting life together. This course is for both people, partners have their own experience of birth and parenting and benefit just as much as the birthing person.

YOU WILL LEARN.. through a mindfulness lens

  • physiology of birth from a mind/body perspective
  • practices for working with pain/positions for labour
  • partner support skills
  • social and emotional needs of the newborn
  • breastfeeding
  • mindful movement practice (yoga)

If finances are proving difficult, a payment plan is available.

Maximum 10 couples.
