HypnoBirthing Antenatal Classes

HypnoBirthing® is a comprehensive antenatal course taught by Megan Lloyd-Smith, HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator. The course runs over 5 x 2.5 hour classes on Monday evenings from 6.30 – 9pm.
HypnoBirthing is a birthing philosophy where we believe that with the right education, preparation and support, families are empowered to have a Positive Birth Experience.
HypnoBirthing is not about getting the perfect ‘hypno-birth’. It’s about being empowered, prepared and knowledgeable so that you can calmly and confidently navigate the journey of pregnancy and birth.
Mums-to-be are encouraged to attend the course between 20 and 35 weeks of their pregnancy.

Prenatal yoga classes at Mother-Well are taught by Nickie Hursthouse (of The Modern Yogini), who trained as both a 200hr and Prenatal Yoga Teacher in London, where yoga became a huge part of her life to manage the bustling city routine. Nickie has found yoga to be a crucial resource throughout periods of uncertainty and helps to maintain full-body strength, flexibility, and tone. Nickie is also a Dietitian and health professional with nearly 10 years of experience and therefore understands how important it is for women to maintain both physical and mental health before, during and after pregnancy.

Bowen Therapy Training starting 14 of March 2020

Are you interested in learning another modality or changing your career path?
Bowen therapy is a gentle, holistic form of bodywork where everybody benefits. From pregnant women and newborns to the elderly – and everybody in between. You will get to know a wide range of clients with acute and chronic presentations. Bowen is a complementary therapy that supports a person on all levels: physically, mentally and emotionally. Learning this modality will not only teach you the physical application, but will give you insights into the intricate connections between body and mind, and the way a body integrates the treatment. You’ll learn Anatomy & Physiology in practice as well as in online learning modules. This will give you the necessary knowledge and skills to understand Bowen and the human body.
What’s involved in the training and what is the commitment?
You’ll learn the foundation of Bowtech®, the original Bowen therapy, in 6 modules over a period of six months. The modules are scheduled on a Saturday/Sunday, which enables you to continue your work routine without interruption. You’ll be required to make a commitment to all six modules, as they are building on one another – so blocking out the time is important. Students work on each other, as this is body work and therefore important to be able to approach an individual with confidence and respect. You will learn to address a client professionally, how to apply the Bowen moves, and practice the procedures as taught. Training manuals are supplied with the course content.
Who is suitable as a Bowtech® Bowen practitioner?
If you are currently practicing other healing modalities, Bowen therapy is a wonderful addition to your skills. As it’s gentle in its application, it can be practiced for many years past retirement age without repetitive strain injuries.
If you are thinking about changing your career path, a Bowen therapy practice can be a great start to holistic therapies. You may offer it part time to begin with until you have established a larger client base. An additional bonus is the fact that Bowtech® is a registered association with the Bowen Academy of Australia, and qualified practitioners receive certification that is recognised in all countries where Bowtech® is present. Continuous Education modules are in place to ensure members are staying up to date with their skills.
