Active Birth Antenatal Short Course

An active birth is one that uses movement, gravity and enhanced knowledge of the body's physiology to create the optimal experience for the new family during the birth process and beyond. An active birth can take place in a variety of settings by using informed choices and ensuring the mother, her wishes and her body are respected and prioritised.

Local doulas Simi Shah and Vaida Milne-Tyte are offering active birth preparatory workshops for parents expecting in 2022! This experience which is tailored for a small group is offered in two formats: weekend and short course. The courses draw from a wide variety of perspectives including Active Birth, Yoga Birth and Hypnobirthing as well as many years’ experience that Simi and Vaida have gained while attending births as doulas. Their teaching is evidence-based to give you a well-rounded and realistic understanding of what to expect at the birth of your baby. You will leave the course ready to meet your arrival feeling calm confident in your own strength and excited for the transition into parenthood.

The short course will suit second time parents who wish to have a refresher or those short on time before their arrival. The session will focus on:

  • Active birth principles and best birthing positions
  • Pain management options
  • Tips for the birth partner
  • Practical preparations for baby feeding resources and a hospital bag checklist

  • 10am - 1pm on Sunday 30th January 2022

Meet Roxanne Armstrong. 

Roxanne offers both myofascial release (MFR) and ScarWork treatments at Moon on Friday afternoons - more about those in subsequent posts. However, here's more about Roxanne in her own words πŸ‘‡

Hi, I’m Roxanne, originally from Canada.

I came to the UK to work in Theatre (Costume), then about 15 years ago I took a weekend course in massage which completely changed my direction in life.

So, I started my therapist journey properly in 2006 with JING Massage Training and a foundation in Holistic Medical Massage, then in 2008 I qualified in Sports & Remedial Massage at the NLSSM. I continued my training in Myofascial Release with MFR UK & ScarWork treatment of scars developed by Sharon Wheeler.

Pretty much from beginning I have been fascinated by Fascia and have always consider fascial adhesions in the when tailoring treatments for clients.

Growing an entire new human being in nine months is an immense task, but it is also one that our bodies are equipped to 
accommodate.

Although, sometimes we need a bit of support.

The wonderful pregnancy hormones that help your body prepare for birth, the weight of the baby, increase in blood and fluid volume, coupled with the body's attempt to keep you upright and functioning can but tremendous pressure of areas such as the pelvis.

Osteopathy can treat a whole range of musculoskeletal conditions, such as pelvic girdle pain, to give you that extra bit of support in your maternity journey.

Once your little one is in your arms the birth hormones will take time to settle down, during this time you may be more prone to strains and sprains. To add to this, breastfeeding and carrying your baby can put a lot of pressure on the body – not helped by lack of sleep! Osteopathy can also help in the days, weeks and months after you've given birth.
