Your Instructor

This Antenatal Partner Workshop was expertly designed by our Women’s Health Physiotherapist, Deborah Fernandes, MISCP. With over 23 years of experience, Deborah has been teaching and preparing couples in Portugal and for the last 13 years in Ireland, for what is one of the most important days of their lives.

Education is Power!

The main aim of our Birth Preparation Workshop is to educate, prepare you for childbirth and give the necessary support and confidence to couples throughout the pregnancy Journey.

As a mum-to-be, you want to deliver your baby into this world in the safest, most gentle and comfortable way possible.

This workshop will help your birth partner understand their role during your labour and childbirth. This role is very important and if he/she feels confident and well-prepared, you will benefit greatly from his/her help! Deborah will teach your partner how to be present and involved with confidence during your labour.

Recommended from 28 weeks to 32 weeks of your pregnancy, this is a very practical, interactive hands-on Workshop with massage and movement involved.

For any mum-to-be, being physically and emotionally supported by their life partner during their pregnancy period is invaluable.
