Now the Active Birth Workshop has been filmed (thanks Mal and Rowan), it can now be shared here online. The videos add up to an hour of viewing and are split into 5 parts. That way, if you only want to be reminded of, for example, the rebozo techniques then that is possible.
Filming it all in one go on one day gave little opportunity for correcting errors or doing it differently in the light of having seen the film.
I have tried to credit where I got the ideas from at all times and am sorry if I’ve missed anyone out.
Here are the videos, I very much hope you find them useful…
The first one describes labour and describes why being upright and mobile is important
The second one shares techniques which often help women to manage labour without drugs
The third one looks specifically at using the Rebozo in for relaxation and childbirth
The fourth one encourages slowing down breathing during birth to help avoid hyperventilating
The fifth one chats about creating and maintaining the environment to encourage the hormones which make labour progress work
I very much hope you find these videos helpful.
