Birthlight Yoga for Maternity Health Professionals aims to enhance women’s comfort during pregnancy and labour and to reduce the need for medical intervention in childbirth with carefully selected and tested adaptations of yoga. ‘Birthlight Yoga’ teachers will be able to impart to pregnant and labouring women the understanding and skills they require in order to be positively involved in their birth experience, however the process unfolds at the time. Rather than information, women take body memories and awareness to their labour space: this is how yoga is effective.

‘Birthlight Yoga’ has been developed in collaboration with midwives over 20 years. The course was inspired by Amazonian rainforest midwives and by women using their breath to ‘exhale push’ without strain irrespective of previous experience of yoga or levels of fitness.

The course is in full conformity with NICE guidelines for normalising birth (2008). Research has confirmed that central oxytocin levels associated with positive outcomes are raised by yoga practice (McNabb 2003).

Course Prerequisites

This programme has been specifically designed for Midwives, Doctors, Childbirth Educators, Obstetric Physiotherapists, Maternity Support Workers and Doulas who have an experience of Yoga.
