APPPAH Live: Physiological Birth: The Foundation of Love, Connection and Health with Janet Balaskas, founder Active Birth 

October 24 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Physiological Birth: The Foundation of Love, Connection and Health

In this  talk I will demonstrate why birth matters and will present an overview of the physiology of the whole process of birth, from the start of labour until the first hour after birth. This will include how a woman’s body is shaped and designed for birthing, the underlying hormonal physiology and natural immune protection, with their implications for emotional health and physical resilience.


Janet Balaskas, founder Active Birth 

Janet is the founder of Active Birth. Her innovative ideas have inspired parents and birth professionals worldwide. Obstetricians and midwives have a high regard for her work, and many have adopted her methods. She began her work as a pioneering birth educator and author in the late 1970’s and founded the Active Birth Centre in the 1980’s and published the Active Birth Manifesto

Janet’s has written many ground-breaking books including New Active Birth, Yoga for Pregnancy and The Water Birth Book, and has recently published a new film – Active Birth: your guide to nature’s plan

Having been a physical center in North London for four decades, the Active Birth Centre has more recently become an online forum where Janet leads classes and runs training courses in teaching and practicing Active Birth for professionals.
