Welcome to The Daisy Foundation Thame! We offer a variety of classes and workshop suitable for all mums to be, whether first time of fourth! Evidence based, friendly, acceoting of all birth choices and FEDANT approved, you can find your perfect antenatal preparation here.
Daisy Birthing classes are a mum only antenatal class which guides you through a yoga based movement sequence every week which is wonderful for pregnancy aches and niggles as well as introducing breathing techniques, positive unbiased antenatal education and a fantastic weekly relaxation using elements of self hypnosis. It is a very gentle, deeply relaxing class which provides fantastic time out for mum and a safe space to discuss any anxieties or questions about your pregnancy and birth.
Our all inclusive Active Antenatal method is a ground breaking, effective and all encompassing pregnancy class helping you to learn your antenatal education in a truly effective way - anchored to your breath, your body and your movement - exactly where you will need it on your baby’s birthing day.
Classes run Tuesday evenings in 6 week terms at The Red Kite Centre in Thame - I look forward to seeing you there!
Active birthing workshops include birth physiology and anatomy, hormones and birth breathing, the use of gravity in labour, pain relief options and practical advice and strategies for birth partners to allow them to support you both physically and emotionally in labour - including the use of massage techniques.
Our all inclusive Parent class covers all of the above and much more - also covering newborn care and the postnatal period. This includes practicalities like bathing and changing baby, normal sleep patterns, safety, feeding and other parenting choices, postnatal mum, the fourth trimester and more.
