Partner Training & Labour Preparation Massage

Prepare yourself to have a beautiful birth with Labour Preparation Workshop.

At Adeo Massage Pregnancy & More I use NurtureLife® massage techniques with focus on the continuously changes in the body and adapt to your ever-changing needs in the lead-up to labour.

This labour preparation allows the pregnant mum and partner to explore how to best prepare the body to move through the waves of change in labour, while maintaining the mind-body-birth-baby-connection.

In my studio I offer private sessions for the couples or mum-to-be and birth partner as a set of specialised skills for the birth partner to easily adapt and utilise with the labouring woman part of NurtureLife® treatment. This can be during the week but also on weekend days.

These sessions will give confidence in both the pregnant mum and partner, and you learn different massage techniques for various birthing scenarios.

We will explore how to support you through the first stage of labour allowing your body to comfortably move and adjust in this early stage. My focus is to reduce any fears or anxiety; this allows the body to produce the right hormones for the labour to progress, engaging a sense of connection and openness. Creating the right environment for the labouring women is essential for her to feel safe, secure and nurtured.

You are guided into a deeper sense of relaxation with an inner focus that will assist you through your labour. You learn how to read the labouring body, and deliver nurturing touch during contractions. We will focus on gentle holds which are soothing, calming and maintain focus. During the contractions you will focus on specific holds creating “contraction distraction” to ease the contraction tides with a focus on inner strength, opening and ripening.

We will explore active movement in early stage of labour, and effective positions to reduce either back pain or pelvic pain. We will utilise various positions that blend massage holds and nurturing touch through each phase of labour.

You will feel confident and more connected with your birth partner knowing they have the tools to support you in your labour as you both journey to parenthood.

Touch is soothing, calming and what connects us; you will always remember the overwhelming joy you feel the first time you touch your new baby. This is a shared journey to parenthood. Sessions are tailored to your needs whether you are a first-time mother or already have children.
