 I so enjoyed my three days training at The Active Birth Centre- a place I had longed to visit having read so much about the fabulous and inspiring work that goes on there. I was not disappointed. I spent three wonderful days there in the company of inspiring women from diverse backgrounds in midwifery, yoga and doulas. Under the guidance and nurturing of Lynn Murphy- a truly gifted facilitator- we were taken on a journey of self reflection and discovery. Lynn’s long working career of working with mums in the postnatal period really shone through. She facilitated a great course both in content and style. I left feeling I had gained a huge amount of information, tools and exercises that I can use in my work both in a one to one setting and in group work. Thank you Lynn for sharing your knowledge and wisdom so beautifully. BSc MSC Health Psychologist, Maternity Nurse, Doula & Night Nanny   Christina Johnson 

Information is important for new parents helping them to make good parenting choices from an empowered position. My aim with this training is to help you fill a gap that is often there in the support of new families. For those of us working with new mothers our role is to facilitate a place of non-judgment and support were women could feel safe to open up to others while exploring what is normal to expect at this time. Then through the simplicity of touch, yoga and the breath alongside openhearted dialogue and discussion women can discover their mothering skills and the enjoyment that can be had when one does not feel alone. You will observe the mother and baby relationship blossom. – Lynn Murphy

 About Lynn

Lynn trained with Janet Balaskas as an Active Birth Teacher for Pre and Postnatal yoga over 20 years ago followed by training in developmental baby massage with Peter Walker. She went on to devise our Postnatal programme at the ABC as well as devising this training and others for the postnatal period. Lynn continues to develop this area of her work imaginatively, learning especially from the mothers and babies she meets. She also runs classes and workshops at the local Children’s centre and Whittington Hospital and supports her local Maternity Voices group to improve services for new families.

At the ABC our concept has always been to give continuous support and inspiration throughout the entire primal period from conception to toddler and the content of this course includes all the skills Lynn has developed for the perinatal period and beyond.
