MummyNatal 6 week birth preparation course

Birth preparation course consists of 6 weekly relaxing antenatal classes for mums to be. Giving you the tools needed for a calm and confident birth and empowering you to make the right decisions for you and your baby. Everyone is different, so our ethos is based around choice…

Antenatal Classes are held on Thursday evenings in Walton on Thames. 

You can book both a MummyNatal and a Baby Massage class at the same time for a reduced price

"I managed to apply the breathing suggestions, to focus and stay calm throughout my labour".

I completed the 6 week birth preparation course with Kayleigh in April, and continued until our baby boy arrived. I would 100% recommend it to expectant mums. I'm not a person who can easily relax and have never meditated or practiced any sort of relaxation techniques before and surprisingly I managed apply the breathing suggestions, to focus and stay calm throughout my labour. This was my second baby and my husband even commented about how well I'd managed compared to my first labour. Very glad I did it!

Prepare For The Birth YOU Want

MummyNatal doesn’t teach the ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to give birth, just finding your own way – what’s right for you. This means that rather than teaching specific techniques to use in labour at certain points, or teaching the way that labour ‘should’ be, we support mums-to-be to tune into what your birth experience is, focusing simply on the present moment and finding confidence and acceptance.

What is unique about MummyNatal Antenatal classes is that they are designed to encourage women to trust themselves and listen to what they need to do, as every birth is individual. Women can feel that they have ‘failed’ if their birth is not a quiet serene birth, if they didn’t use specific techniques which they had been taught, or if they didn’t have a specific outcome.

Every birth is individual and we help demystify the process and options, building mums’ confidence and helping them find their own way to a positive birth experience.

 

An hour a week dedicated to just you and your pregnancy

Our lives are often busy and hours, roll into days that roll into weeks and before we know it 40 weeks of pregnancy have zoomed by. 

Our weekly MummyNatal antenatal classes give you the perfect opportunity to take some time out and just focus on you and your pregnancy. 

A relaxing experience

We have a tranquil studio in Walton on Thames. Dim lighting, aromatherapy, and the MummyNatal sound track make the perfect setting for our  antenatal classes. 

Each week you are gently guided through breathing practices, meditations and relaxations to ensure that you leave class feeling completely relaxed. 

Birth Ball Movements for labour and birth

We have a birth ball segment in each class. We guide you through gentle movements to help ease any pregnancy niggles. We help to encourage baby into the optimum position for birth as well as looking at how birth balls can be used during labour and birth. 

Mindfulness Inspired Techniques For Pregnancy, Labour And Birth

Each week we explore mindfulness through our mindful breathing practice, mediation and visualisation. 

We support you and give you the space and time to find out what works for you. 

There is no right or wrong way to give birth!

Birth Education

We have a birth talk segment of our classes. This is kept really informal and relaxed.

Each week follows a different theme and also allows some time for you to ask any questions you may have. 

I am also available to mums via phone and email if they have questions that they would prefer not to ask in class. 

Meeting like minded mums in your area

Our antenatal classes are a great opportunity to meet other mums in your area. A MummyNatal course runs over 6 weeks, giving you lots of time to get to know each other. 

Lots of our mums remain friends and meet for coffee and come to our Developmental Baby Massage classes together.
