We offer hands-on birth training for couples with two leading birth prep workers: Dr Lou Nicholls, a chiropractor with post-graduate training in pregnancy and paediatrics, and massage therapist Lauryn Johnston, who has expertise in women's health during the childbearing years. 


This workshop will give the birthing couple a range of techniques to add to their birth toolbox.

After this workshop, you as a birthing team will have strategies to use in each stage to create a flow in your labour. 


Some of the Tools Covered


  • Active labour positions and acupressure

  • Aromatherapy timings and how to use in labour

  • Birth prep movements and massage 

  • Latent labour counterpressures 

  • Releases and balancing for fetal positioning

  • Relaxation techniques for each stage of labour 

  • Shiatsu pressures on the birthing person 

  • Troubleshooting labour intervention issues 

  • Working with birthing wraps, balls and bolsters 

Please wear comfortable clothing; we will need you to bring a pillow and a bed sheet. If you have a birth ball, that would be helpful to have on hand.
