Birth is a sacred event, although in this day and age it is an element of birth that is often ignored. Mama Bamba antenatal birth preparation looks at the various ways to recognise the deep wisdom and soul beauty of birth, and to find ways to incorporate it into birth plans in a language that caregivers will understand and respect.

Mama Bamba Way Birth Preparation

The Mama Bamba Way Birth preparation antenatal classes are designed to create empowering and transformative birth experiences for women, their partners and their babies.

We believe women should be able to encounter birth as a soul satisfying, deeply enriching experience. We offer antenatal classes to provide tools for ensuring that birthing mothers trust in their ability to birth in the manner of their choice and are able to do so with mindfulness, support and confidence.

Our experiential, practical approach to antenatal preparation encourages you to trust your body to let go of fear during birth. Doing so allows labour to unfold in an easier, more loving way. We provide information on how relaxation and support can help you physiologically during birth, we guide informed decision making around birth choices, and we offer experiences of deep relaxation, visualisation, movement for releasing tension in your body, massage techniques, and connecting with your unborn baby as helpful resources that you can draw on during labour.

The more we resist and fight and fear labour, the more it hurts. The more we soften and open to the experience, the more magnificent it becomes.

Usually we think that brave people have no fear.
The truth is that they are intimate with fear.
