One-on-one workshop

Time-dependent on your needs

I also offer private workshops that are tailored to your needs. Whether you’re planning a home birth or not, a large part of your labour will take place in your home; I suggest, therefore, that the private workshops also take place there, using relaxation exercises to help build positive associations.
