From Womb to World - Antenatal Workshop

There is often a lot of focus on pregnancy and birth, with little time to think about what will happen once your baby arrives.

Together with discussion and teaching of the biological and physical aspects of breastfeeding, our unique From Womb to World antenatal workshop includes a focus on relaxation, bonding, breathing exercises, journaling and trusting our instincts.

Families are given time to explore their thoughts and ideas around breastfeeding and can leave feeling knowledgeable and empowered going forward. 

Our unique From Womb to World workshop includes:

  • How Breastfeeding works
  • What to expect in the first days post birth
  • Normal infant behaviour 
  • How to know if things are going well
  • When to seek further support
  • Discussion around any concerns
  • Mindful Breastfeeding
  • Questions to ask in hospital
  • Guided relaxations
  • Pregnancy, labour and postnatal yoga for you and your partner
  • Sleep information for your newborn
  • Comprehensive course folder for you to keep to support you post birth

This 6 hour workshop, taught by Sian Aldis (IBCLC, Holistic Sleep Coach & Mindful Breastfeeding Practitioner) and Luisa Lyons (Specialist Midwife, IBCLC, Tongue tie Practitioner & Yoga Instructor), takes place over 2 x 3 hour sessions.

Parents are equipped with the knowledge they need to breastfeed in the way they wish, with a focus on relaxing into parenthood and navigating the 4th trimester with their new baby. 

Suitable for all families, whether this is your 1st baby or your 7th!
