What’s your favourite colour? Do you know why you like that colour above all others? Does it make you feel a certain way?
Something I often chat to my expectant parents about is the importance of colour in labour.
Wherever you give birth, it’s good to think about having one or more items around you which include a colour that makes you feel happy, relaxed, calm.
When in labour you’ll want to remain in your parasympathetic nervous system, your confident response, your relaxed state as much as possible and a colour that reminds you of calm, of fun, of a happy time will be a welcomed addition to your birthing environment, wherever that may be!
I said to a couple recently that they could always choose their first baby’s blanket in Mum’s favourite colour too because let’s face it, baby doesn’t care what colour blanket he or she is being kept warm in but it may make Mum’s experience even more positive and relaxing every time she glances over at her new bundle!
Choose a picture frame, an oversized shirt, or your flip-flops or dressing gown in this colour… Perhaps not every single item that will be around you, but one or two may well make a difference to your overall experience!
Due to the current financial situation a lot of people are finding themselves in, I’m currently offering group spaces for just £120 per couple (Do get in touch for more information if you are now unable to attend any of your antenatal classes and are in that situation). My next group course dates will be held from 19:00 - 21:30 via video link on:
May: 7th, 14th, 21st & 28th
June: 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th
