A drum can support the labour process wonderfully. During labour, heartbeat like drumming can provide pain relief, relaxation, and assist with the inwards focus needed for labour to unfold, and gently encourage progress.

By the end of this class, you will know why drumming is a gentle and effective way to support the pregnancy and birth journey. You will also know how to access further knowledge and training in drumming for birth.
I will give you links to free resources, and will also tell you about my new course called Drumming For Birth.
Who is this class for?

What makes this class special?
I have worked as a perinatal educator and birthworker for over ten years, and I not only have extensive training and experience in using drum healing during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum, and beyond, but I also have extensive teaching experience and I know how to deliver information in a way that is simple, accessible and entertaining.
About the instructor
Following 20 years of research into reproductive physiology and the transformative experience of giving birth to my children, I discovered a vocation to support expectant families and train birth professionals. I have developed this for more than a decade, assisting and training thousands of families and birthworkers. I have earned a PhD and a DiPhe in antenatal education and I’m the author of the book Why Postnatal Recovery Matters. I’m also a Reiki, Reiki Drum, and Drum Healing practitioner and teacher who is passionate about incorporating scientific knowledge with spirituality and rituals. Grounding myself and my practice through walking in nature, year-round river swims, shamanic drumming, and 5rhythms dancing, I guide others on their spiritual quests through life’s transitions and rites of passages, nurturing souls and honouring the profound spiritual essence that resides within us all.
I have been drumming for over ten years, and used the drum to support women during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum. I have drummed at homebirths, birth centre births, and even in my local delivery unit.
You can read about my drum journey in this blog post.
