Enhance your antenatal preparation with a 121 session
Take time to dig deeper on movement and relaxation techniques. My 121 sessions involve your birth partner to help you work together towards the most positive birth experience available to you.
What will I learn?
- Learn about the 3 main disruptors of birth and how to avoid them
- Engage in detailed discussion and hands on practice of birth positions
- Gain knowledge of advanced techniques to ensure optimal position of baby during pregnancy and birth
- Introduction to Rebozo massage for pregnancy and birth
- Delve deeper into the importance of your birth environment and its influence on your hormones and the birthing process
Knowledge is power
My sessions provide comprehensive and evidence-based information about the various stages of labour, birth positions, breathing exercises, and relaxation methods. I believe that knowledge is power, and by understanding the physiological and emotional aspects of childbirth, you can make informed decisions.
By involving birth partners in the birth preparation process, we aim to strengthen the bond between expectant parents and provide them with the tools to support each other during labour and birth. Partners will learn how to provide physical and emotional support, enhancing the overall birthing experience.
“Talking through what my birth partner might expect from the experience, practicing positions and being able to ask you questions in the privacy of our own home rather than in a class situation was really helpful – the techniques we covered really helped and got me through to the final stage of labour.
Being tailored to our needs personally was the most useful part and I would definitely recommend you to anybody!”

Same Price. More Time to Pay.
“We found the session so helpful and really appreciated the way that you had tailored it for us. It’s so valuable to have open and honest conversations ahead of the birth, as well as to plan how we’ll use the techniques that you’ve taught us as part of our birth toolkit.
We felt that we covered a lot in the time, but it didn’t feel overwhelming or too much – if anything, it was great to fit so much in! It’s really helpful to have your notes and instructions to refer back to now and we’ll certainly be revisiting those as we plan and continue to practice.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Here’s some more information on my 121 sessions but if there’s anything you don’t see answered please do not hesitate to contact me.
When will the session take place?
The session date and time will be agreed between us before payment is taken.
At what stage should I book a 121?
For a 121 following the structure mentioned above the optimum time is around 30 weeks. However I can offer 121s at all stages of your pregnancy and tailor them to what you require at each stage.
Where will the 121 be held?
Ideally at your own home, if this is not possible alternative venues can be arranged.
Is this just what you cover in your pregnancy yoga classes?
The vast majority covers completely new techniques – tools I cannot cover in class due to lack of time, the need for additional props and the inclusion of your birth partner.
How much does a 121 cost?
£75 for a 1.5 hour session including follow up support via email. Any additional sessions charged at £50 per 1.5 hour session.
