Pregnancy Wellness Workshops

in South London

Pregnancy is a truly special and unique time – a time of transition when your energies are directed to a new life and evolving into a new version of yourself as a mother. In our busy modern lives it can be difficult to take a step back and allow ourselves the opportunity for self nurture and to prepare for this transition. Our regular Pregnancy Wellness workshops, run by passionate midwife Vicky of the Group Antenatal clases, allow you that time to tune in, connect to the inner journey and nourish your mind, body and soul.

The afternoon will will break down into four parts

  • a talk on a specific topic to support you to prepare for birth and the early weeks with your new baby
  • an Aromatherapy session on how essential oils can effectively be used to support your pregnancy and birth with a personalised blend to take home
  • a guided Hypnobirthing relaxation to leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated with positive confidence and energy
  • tea and cake and an opportunity to discuss questions

The sessions are perfect to attend at any stage of pregnancy and are on offer to support your well-being through pregnancy. Shala Pregnancy Workshops run monthly and alternate between Pregnancy Wellness, Hypnobirthing and Birth Preparation for Couples.
