FNQ Natural Parenting Group
The Doulas from the FNQ Birth Network welcome you to the Cairns Natural Parenting group. We are meeting once a month in Cairns to chat informally about pregnancy, birth and natural parenting. Share & learn in a supportive, non-judgmental environment with other women who have first-hand & varied experiences of birth and parenting in our region.
We meet on the Esplanade, near the Pirate Ship playground. So why not bring a blanket/chair. If you have time, feel free to bring a healthy plate to share.
Feel free to contact Lynda for more information. If the weather looks dodgy, phone Lynda on 0439 22 00 41 for the alternate venue.

Birth As We Know It ~ Film Screening, 7th Sept.
Birth into Being Workshops ~ FNQ 2014
Learn how birth affects the rest of your life and how to recognize and release repeating patterns of behaviour that can make you feel stuck and unable to reach your full potential. This workshop is for anyone wishing to access the deeper levels of their being to remove blockages and free up creative energy. We invite you to journey with us in a safe and non-judgemental space to free yourself from limitations.
This workshop is excellent for expecting couples to heal their own birth trauma and fears around birthing before baby is due. Visit www.thebirthingfield.com for details of workshop and more or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Mums To be Meditation ~ with Michelle
Meditation during pregnancy can help to get both body and mind into a deep state of relaxation, which is so beneficial to both mother and baby.
Pregnancy and Childbirth meditation reduces the need for medical interventions during labour and increases oxygen supply to mother and baby using guided breathing techniques during pregnancy, which can also be used during labour and delivery. It also directly reduces the risks for pre-eclampsia (hypertension in pregnancy) and pre-term labour by lowering blood pressure, heart rate and pulse. It can also bring about a more relaxing, drug and pain free labour if practised regularly. Pregnancy meditation will also help you connect with your baby on a deeper level in the womb.
