Each of our 40+ country-wide antenatal/ postnatal practitioners and childbirth educators are highly-skilled and compassionate, trained in our specialist approach to childbirth yogic education.
Developed over three decades, it combines the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual aspects of birth preparation and the early postnatal period.
In addition to the YogaBirth certification, teachers regularly continue their professional development with courses, personal yoga practice, experience at births and time spent with new mothers. Annual study days and residential weekends, featuring professionals who present current research and lead practical sessions, are provided by the YogaBirth Association.
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.
