CREATIVE BIRTH is a series of creative and exciting alternative birth preparation classes for women. Which will explore and celebrate your pregnancy journey and help support you to feel empowered for your birth and transition into motherhood.
I will gently guide you to explore your pregnancy and birthing day through art. I believe that an empowering birth is one where the mumma is at the heart of the decision making process and has prepared for her journey spiritually and emotionally as well as physically.
The classes will explore how you are feeling about the pregnancy, birth, and becoming a parent. Using meditation and art can help support strong emotions and release any fears you may have. There will be circle sharing and time for hot drinks.

I know you- Labyrinths of Labour A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that has been used for empowerment and to create positive change. To walk or finger trace a labyrinth can be used as a meditative tool during pregnancy to create calm. During labour a labyrinth can be used in the early stages as a distraction and to create a sense of calm. Just like the twists and turns of the labyrinth we are reminded that labour is unfolding just as it should be. The session will include creating a labyrinth and asking any questions you need to your labyrinth to help you on your journey.
