Event description
This advanced training for birth gives you everything you need to know about labour & birth, and how to cope with it. Combing anatomical discovery with different skills for labour, both parents will come away with a wealth of information about how birth works and all the ways they can help it work even better.
We then move into a birth mindset transformation experience to help you shift your mental state from one of fear, anxiety and apprehension, to one of confidence, positivity and unwavering belief in your body’s natural ability to give birth.
We explore your fears and beliefs around birth – either from a previously difficult experience or through stories from friends, family and the media. We then work towards retraining the brain into seeing, believing and knowing that a positive birth mindset can transform your experience of birth.
"Your classes were so helpful – we really knew very little about the process of labour, and nothing at all about how to handle it.
We went into the labour feeling really confident and relaxed. I found the range of positions you took us through really useful, and used several of them.
Our midwife commented on how happy and relaxed we were and even said that we were making her feel relaxed!"
Jess & James
Who it is for…
This programme is for parents who are feeling a bit anxious around birth, maybe because you have had a previously difficult, long or traumatic labour, or just that you just feel out of your depth. You want to have knowledge and tools that other antenatal classes haven’t given you.
You also want to have clear guidance on a practical and intuitive method to cope with labour and birth, and approach your decisions and choices with confidence. You’re information junkies who want to know everything about birth, and want practical answers to your questions and unconditional emotional support.
You want to have an amazing birth experience but can’t quite bring yourself to believe it could happen. But you are prepared to do more work to prepare, to ensure you get the birth you want.
You’ve given us lots of tools and what to expect from each stage and the NCT didn’t give us that.

We learned so much from the workshop and very confident now.
We completely changed our attitude from thinking it is someone else’s job, to knowing this is our responsibility and it is completely up to us how to go about it. Our views have changed 100%."

"I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed the Birthzang class and found it enlightening, informative and empowering. As a husband, I thought long and hard on whether we should attend such classes. I was not very knowledgable about birth (apart from what I saw on TV).
I couldn’t understand why anyone would want to go through the trauma, worry and stress of childbirth over and over again! Having been on the class, so many of my questions have been answered and I feel so much more capable and part of the process now.
Thank you, Eleanor, for a great day. Highly recommended (particularly for Dads)."
