the workshop

 !Amandla! Is a rallying cry from South Africa. It means Power. Birthing beautifully is an act of feminism. What better way to rally women together than in this divine time of pregnancy.

I am fascinated by the natural way the human body works. I believe that our bodies have everything they need to heal and maintain health. Some days are good and some are bad, but mostly, in order to conceive and start to grow a baby you have to be in relatively good health despite how easily or challenging becoming pregnant was for you.

In these workshops we take a woman-centred look at the biological and emotional aspects of your pregnancy. We'll talk everything  pregnancy, childbirth,  4th trimester and beyond. My goal is to give your body and you baby the best chance of a safe, enriching and empowering birth and to carry that power with you into motherhood.

We start as we intend to finish, and how we show up as a mothers is deeply tied to pregnancy and our birth experience.

I want you to step into Motherhood knowing you have what it takes to be brilliant (even on 4 hours of sleep)!

WHILE OUR COURSE IS WOMAN-CENTRED AND WE ENDEAVOUR TO EQUIP YOU TO HAVE IMPORTANT CONVO'S WITH YOUR PARTNER OR BIRTH COMPANION, WE  ENCOURAGE THEM TO JOIN US FOR THE INFORMATION PORTION OF THE WORKSHOP.

"...When a woman feels confident in her body, well supported,
and able to express herself without inhibition,
the pain that she may feel can become bearable, and just one part of the process.
She can then respond instinctively with her own resources,
including her most basic and accessible tools:

BREATH, SOUND AND MOVEMENT "
-Dr. Sara J. Buckley

TESTIMONIALS

​It was a place where I felt safe, connected, educated, respected and sore (good sore lol)!

The knowledge that Faye holds about birth, and the body gave me exceptional confidence that I could continue to train right up until my last weeks before birth.

I was able to be educated (and reminded) about the processes of labour as well as staying physically fit so that I could endure the most empowering birth I didn't know I was going to have yet.
