PREGNANCY

Pregnancy and birth are one of the most special and important times in a woman's life. Let Natalie take care of you and your precious cargo during this wonderful time.

One-to-One Pregnancy Yoga Session

1 hour - £30

This private session will take place in your own home and will include a tailored yoga practice, visualisation and relaxation exercises, as well as learning different breathing techniques. Sessions can be on a one-off basis or regularly to suit your needs. Natalie will make contact with you before the session to understand any personal expectations and outcomes you hope to achieve. Pregnancy yoga is suitable from 12 weeks of pregnancy.

Birth Coaching Session

2.5 - 3 hours £70

This session will take place in your own home and will include sharing ideas and offering ways to help prepare for the birth and postnatal period. You will spend time with Natalie discussing your individual needs and perhaps previous birth experiences. This will also be a good opportunity for your birth partner to find out how s/he can support you best through your labour and birth. You will receive unbiased information about the birth process and the options available to you. The focus will be on the birth process including self-help methods and pain management options, relaxations and visualisations, breathing techniques, the role of the birth partner and how to use yoga positions to encourage a straightforward labour and birth. The session will usually start with getting to know you and understanding your needs, discussing previous births if necessary,  before moving on to the relaxation, breathing and yoga element for you and your birth partner so they can support you in the best possible way. Natalie will make contact with you before the session to understand any personal expectations and outcomes you hope to achieve. This session usually takes place at some point during your third trimester.

Birth Completion Session

1 hour - £30

Giving birth to your baby can be the most special and empowering moment of a woman's life, however, sometimes it is not all what you hoped for. Whilst every mother absolutely wishes for the safe arrival of her baby, the new mother also has a right to express her feelings of disappointment and sadness if perhaps the birth did not go as planned; or perhaps it was difficult and complicated. Sometimes it is easier to speak to someone who is not emotionally involved with you but can offer a kind and listening ear without judgement. There may be explanations about why certain things happened the way they did. Natalie has read over many birth stories as part of her Doula training, and will offer support and comfort to you. Some women are ready to talk straight away, for other women it may take time. It is never too late to discuss your feelings around the birth of your baby.

This session can take place in your own home or another suitable place of your choice, perhaps over coffee with your new baby.
