 Choices in Childbirth Classes are intended to be taken in addition to the Antenatal Classes. We cover topics related to supporting birthing in the most natural way possible, whether that be at home or in hospital. We  talk about  waterbirth, acupressure and hypnobirthing as techniques to help smooth the birthing journey, we talk about informed consent process when making decisions about your birthing options and we cover the ways in which to support  your body to do what it does best - BIRTH !     Plus introducing you to the support networks that are out there to help you once baby is born.

Contact us at admin@activebirth.org.nz for more details and to reserve your space  for you and your birth support person. ( Places are limited)

"Imagine if our culture told us that birth was one of the greatest things a woman might ever do. Imagine if the stories and images we were exposed to to, taught us that labour is an incredible and transformational experience, a rite of passage into motherhood."
