Active Birthing Workshop

Attending an Active Birth Workshop will help you and your birth partner to prepare physically, mentally and spiritually for a positive birth experience, whatever that means in your own unique circumstances.

In this fun, informative and empowering session, I share the insights and experience that I have accumulated during the more than 16 years that I’ve been learning about the factors that lead to positive birth.  I draw this information from more than ten years as a pregnancy yoga teacher, my trainings and experience in GentleBirth and KGHypnobirthing, my work in the field of doula support and the passion for positive birth that was awoken within me through the life-changing experience of birthing my two beautiful children with confidence and trust.  

Topics covered include:

  • The Role of the Birth Partner
  • Optimisation of the Birth Hormones
  • Comfort Measures for Labour
  • Acupressure Points for Pain Relief
  • Essential Oils
  • Massage
  • Birth Preferences
  • Active Management of Labour
  • Optimal Positions for Labour 
  • Spinning Babies Techniques
  • Navigation of the Hospital System
  • Hypnobirthing

Fee is €200 per couple.  Mid-morning refreshments are provided.

Her gentle, reassuring voice is what I hear in my head during labour.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed Lara's Gentlebirth, Active Birth and mum and baby yoga classes over the last 8 years. Myself and my husband agreed that baby number 5 wasn't making an appearance until her pregnancy yoga classes started back, as pregnancy wouldn't be the same without that 90 mins of calm, informative relaxation once a week! Her gentle, reassuring voice is what I hear in my head during labour. We are planning another wonderful homebirth in May and will always be grateful for the guidance and support we have received from Lara."
