Private workshop in person (or over two sessions if online)

I recommend attending my Pregnancy Yoga and Wellbeing classes as well if possible (group or 1:1) as this helps to embody the techniques like positions, breathing and mind-body connection that is so helpful for birth.

Birth Prep Class attendees say....

Matt:

I would definitely recommend this workshop, it is very good value for money!  I

f you are at all nervous, apprehensive or feel slightly in the dark about the whole labour/childbirth experience, I cannot recommend this workshop enough. 

Pippa certainly knows her stuff and offers great info and tips for this amazing life experience you are facing.  She helps put any worries and concerns that you and your partner may have right out of your mind!"

Jenny;

We really wanted to express how this class really prepared us for birth; we don’t think the birth would have been the same without it. I had a very quick labour and managed to keep very active. The massages and techniques we learnt were a great help and got me through to such a late stage in my labour [and] helped us cope amazingly well...

Thank you again for the class and the knowledge we got to take away to make us so confident in the preparation for the birth.

Kerry:

I didn't use any medical pain relief - the water was so relaxing - I could have easily fallen asleep afterwards. The breathing techniques really helped - the midwife said my controlled breathing made things so much easier especially towards the end. I always remembered that the contractions will pass and to breath through them. Thanks so much for all the information and techniques, they helped both me and Roger (and baby Max) in having a birth that we wished for.

Louise:

I wanted to say the hugest thank you to you.  Not only did the Pregnancy Yoga offer so much more than I expected, the Active Birth Workshop empowered and educated me to get through labour.  The midwives could see this in action as they said I knew what I was doing, that I was doing brilliantly.  For all of this, I can't thank you enough.  I recommend your classes to any mums-to-be.  Thank you, thank you, thank you
