Yvonne Moore is a founder member of the Active Birth Movement (1981) and co-founder of the Active Birth Teacher Training Course (1986) of which she was a Director from 1990 until 1997. Yvonne was instrumental in organising the London Birthright’s Rally (1982), the two Active Birth Conferences at Wembley (1982 &1983) and the International Water Birth Conference (1995). In 1989 she was appointed a trustee of the Primal Health Research Association by Dr. Michel Odent, Head of Research.
Yvonne is a co-founder of ‘YogaBirth’, established in 2000. She has lectured and held workshops for midwives and other health professionals both in England and abroad. Her efforts in the early ‘80’s, together with her co-founders, were the catalyst for dramatic improvements to the way birth is seen and approached today. Far from stream-lining women to have a ‘natural’ birth, Yvonne empowers women to make their own decisions using yoga, meditation and childbirth education so that they become an active participant in their labour and birth process. Her passion and love for her job is evident in the thousands of women whose birthing experiences she has helped to enhance and enlighten for over 35 years. She continues to teach weekly pre and postnatal classes in North London, along with birth preparation courses.
Yvonne is also an Inner Re-Patterning Practitioner which is a mindfulness, energy psychology based approach to creating health and well-being which is particularly beneficial to the expectant mother by unblocking preconceived fear about labour and birth.
