‘Empowering you to have the confidence to make informed choices during pregnancy, birth and beyond’
Bean Stork offers a range of MummyNatal and BabyNatal courses supporting families from bump to birth to baby.
Our ethos is very much about ‘CHOICE’. We will never suggest a ‘best way’ approach but instead will discuss options; allowing you to decide what works for your own unique family.
MummyNatal Birth Preparation is a six week course for mums-to-be. An opportunity to relax and take time out for you and your pregnancy.
Each hour session includes;
• Birth ball exercises
• Breathing practice
• Managing intense sensation exercises
• Mindfulness inspired techniques for labour and birth
• Birth physiology
• Birth choices education
• Mindful meditation exercises
• Time to bond with your baby
• A chance to meet other mums in the area
• Exercises to encourage baby into the optimum position for birth
The course is very relaxed and friendly and no matter what kind of birth you are planning you will be supported all the way. We offer non-biased and non-judgemental support, exploring your choices so that you are empowered to birth YOUR way.
The course is suitable for any stage and number of pregnancy.
We understand that every birth is individual which is why we do not teach a right or wrong way to birth. Our course helps women explore tools that can support their own unique birth journey.
Our BabyNatal Practical Baby Care workshop will prepare you for the arrival of your little one. This 3 hour antenatal workshop covers many aspects of baby care including; newborn checks, holding, clothing, bathing, winding, sleeping, calming and much more.
Through practical, informative and interactive activities parents will learn new skills, explore their options and increase their confidence. Workshops are non-judgemental, un-biased and taught in a relaxed environment.
