Event description

Description

Have you ever noticed that when mothers talk about their birth stories, more often than not the tales are usually filled with harrowing detail? For an expectant mum this can be quite confrontational. It is natural for mums-to-be to feel anxious, but what they don’t need to feel is terrified. This is where ‘Positive Birth Education’ can help.

Join Kimberly and Shae, on January 31st at 5pm for a night of birth empowerment. The event held at Lanai is a chance for expectant mums, birthing partners and friends to come together to get knowledge and tools on the ways to make the birthing experience feel controlled, calm and positive.

ABOUT THE PRESENTERS

Kimberly-Adelaide, is the owner of Ignite Your Glow, and is one of Mackay's only qualified Childbirth Education Practitioners.

Using Hypnobirthing techniques, Kimberly has developed two programs to support parents-to-be and has successfully helped over 170 birthing women over the last 3 years.

Kimberly says, “Creating and maintaining a positive mindset for labour is crucial for a calm and positive birth experience. Our bodies are designed for birth and know instinctively what to do...it's most often our overthinking brains that get in the way of this.”

“Ignite will prepare you and your birth partner in every way from aiming for whichever birthing experience you desire to what to do in a challenging situation. We also give this power to the partners because they also need to be prepared for when she goes into labour and know when to whisk her away to the hospital and how to create an environment to birth comfortably.”

Shae Reddrop is the owner of Mackay Birth Photography. She has captured the beauty of birth for the last three years and has noticed a rise in the desire for birth photography over this time. Shae’s mission throughout this time has been to capture the moments and interactions that make up the incredible experience of giving birth and meeting your little one for the first time.

Despite its growing popularity, Shae still wishes to burst the stigma of birth photography, “birth photography is not the gory detail and action shots that everyone believes it to be. Rather, it is about preserving those sweet moments that are often forgotten in the post-birth haze.”

Shae is not a medical photographer, so she is not there to invade your privacy or to make you feel uncomfortable. Rather she will float in and out of the room, capturing those unique perspectives.

Having a birth photographer there to document everything allows your birth partner to be 100% present in your birthing experience. And, allowing Shae to photograph your birth will enable you to relive the experience through the photographs as often as you like.

By bringing Kimberly and Shae together for this event, it is expected that you, your birthing partner and friends will know the importance of birth photography and empower you to ensure your privacy and rights throughout your birthing experience are respected. You will also learn how to effectively achieve a calming bonding experience with your baby.

Ultimately, the aim of the evening is to give you and your birth partner the tools and knowledge on how to best support you throughout the whole labour-to-early motherhood, ensuring you feel safe, supported and loved.
