The Second Stage of Labour has a very different feel and purpose to it. This is the time when the baby moves from the open womb into the birth canal and journies to be born. It is characterised by the fetal ejection reflex which brings with it a totally different but equally powerful experience for the mother.
This last class of the course will explore effective antenatal preparations for this stage of labour, introduce the breathing techniques and mindfulness techniques that support and encourage the fetal ejection process and block through a range of birth positions that enable good descent. Finally we will examine some of the practical, physical and emotional challenges and obstacles that may arise during this stage of the birth and how we may avoid/overcome and accept them – if necessary.
