What The Real Birth Studio is all About
We created our Real Birth Studio purely for women and their birth partners. It isn’t a community hall or a hospital room, but a comforting place designed around pregnant and postpartum women. We have created a space for you to enjoy your maternity classes. To feel relaxed and at home.
This beautiful place complements our positive birth ethos. We want you to feel positive about yourself, your pregnancy and your birth. Joining maternity classes and postnatal classes in an environment that you feel safe and welcomed impacts on how much you enjoy your class. Because we provide a relaxed space, women and their partners feel more positive about the information they have learnt.
What We Offer
There is a wide range of maternity classes and postnatal classes to suit everyone. These include antenatal classes, maternity and postnatal exercise classes, mindfulness, hypnobirthing, and The Real Birth Workshop which you can enquire about here. We also put on weekend pamper events for mums and mums-to-be!
We want you to love the exercise and support groups you choose. And we know that our environment will help you feel safe to relax and unwind – which is just what you incredible mums and mums-to-be need! It’s also a great place to meet new friends along your special journey!
Having a comfortable, calm environment to relax into your antenatal class is so important. These classes are where you will learn about birth and labour. It is important that you have positive connotations towards the information you have learned – this will help you to stay calm in your labour and birth.
What To Expect
There are comfy sofas, beanbags and birth balls to sit on. Gone are the days of perching on plastic chairs! We also provide big cushions and mats for our exercise classes. The Real Birth Studio is spacious, light and calm.
It is really important to us that we maintain the right kind of atmosphere during our classes. Which is why we have lovely instructors and therapists who are very friendly and can’t wait to meet you! We are all here to support you through your pregnancy and beyond. Our aim is to work alongside your current maternity care whether that be with the NHS or privately.
We pride ourselves on being a friendly team. If you have any concerns or worries about coming along, please don’t hesitate to contact us. It is our pleasure to answer all of your questions – no matter how silly you may think they are!
There is a kitchen should you need to use it. And a baby changing table.
