Mamaste offers two Workshops, both are antenatal courses but differ depending on your needs and what you for your birth prep. By running two different courses you have a choice, something I advocate for your pregnancy and birthing journey.

 

You can decide what course is best for you and your birth partner depending on your circumstances, what you want from your birth prep and how you learn best... Have a read of what's involved and what course is right for you.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Lucy teaches her birth support workshops, that whatever your ideal birth or however your birth goes how you can be incontrol & make choices along the way. Marc & Myself would 100% recommend her workshops we had so many questions & the course we did with her covered it all. 
Due to reduced movement i had an induction, including balloon, pessary & drip, failed forceps & c-section (I did make the choice in theatre that Marc was still to tell me the sex as we didnt know) needless to say it wasnt quite as planned, but using the tools & knowledge Lucy gave us we got through it laughing most of the way. 
By the time i was post section enough to do the mum & baby yoga we were on lockdown. This was gutting as i had done pregancy yoga. But Lucy even heavily pregant checked in to make sure we were ok & set up a zoom chat for new mums!!
