This 90-minute free online pregnancy yoga workshop with pregnancy yoga teacher, childbirth educator and birth doula Nadia Raafat will introduce you to the key movements and postures to practice during labour to facilitate effective foetal descent and pave teh way for a shorter easier labour.

Whether your baby is head down, head up, presenting on the left, right, or posterior, there are biomechanical solutions to improve your baby’s position both before and during labour.

This workshop will show you how to use your body with awareness to maintain optimum positioning, resolve any malpositioning and proceed onwards towards a normal birth.

From forward-leaning inversions to the dangle practices and from reaching up and baby drops to birth ball remedies, Nadia will show you her top ten positions for a more comfortable and more effective labour.

This special online pregnancy event is suitable for stages 2 and 3 in pregnancy.

Modifications will be suggested for those with pregnancy complications like groin pain, PGP and placenta previa.
