YogaBirth is an association of professionally trained teachers of antenatal and postnatal yoga and childbirth education. We are dedicated to supporting women during the childbearing year, and we welcome all women and their partners into our classes.
Developed over three decades, our specialised approach to childbirth education through yoga combines the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual aspects of birth preparation and the early postnatal period.
Our members are trained and certified through YogaBirth and regularly continue their professional development with courses, personal yoga practice, experience at births and time spent with new mothers. The YogaBirth Association provides annual study days and residential weekends featuring professionals who present current research and lead practical sessions.
Many of our members are also skilled practitioners of other disciplines, including acupuncture, shiatsu, reflexology, physiotherapy, cranio-sacral therapy, midwifery, doula support, lactation counselling, baby massage and motherhood. We work closely with midwives and obstetricians, GPs, other healthcare professionals and yoga teachers, birth activists and childbirth organisations.
