Event description


This Opti-Mum programme consists of a full day intensive for women and their partners. 'Birth Skills' is designed to provide a knowledge of the Essential Elements; a skill set for use during labour and birth including:

  • hormonal interplay - what helps or hinders labour

  • what to expect at each stage of labour

  • how can you create the optimal environment

  • making mindful decisions at any labour intersection for empowering birth

  • focused and non-focused awareness exercises to invite and embrace labour sensations

  • adressing the perception of pain - minimising overwhelm and maximising awareness, focus & surrender

  • choosing your support team and learning how can they become the ultimate support partners to help facilitate your desired birth experience - hands on or hands off

  • discussion, interaction and reflection with professional midwives, educators and mindfulness practitioners providing your premium learning experience.

 This may be your first time birthing, or you may have already been through pregnancy but desire a different approach.

Women who attend Opti-mum consider this an investment that will determine the quality of their birth experience.

  • You will receive an exclusive audio file for birth that you can practise during pregnancy which means you will be prepared for your birth and learn how to move moment to moment through each stage of labour

  • If you're wondering how to move, breath, remain calm and confident throughout labour and birth, this is the course for you
