Our founder, Pinter & Martin, is a Brixton-based publishing company that specialises in pregnancy, birth and parenting. We opened in 2016, initially as a venue to host book launches and other birth-related workshops. Over the years we have hand-picked a wonderful range of pregnancy workshops and classes, and everything we offer is evidence-based and quality assured. Whether its hypnobirthing, home-birthing or even pregnancy yoga you’re after, we’re sure to have something that’s perfect for you and your oncoming baby.
Whether it’s your first baby or second or third, our birth & early parenthood preparation courses provide you with all of the tools to help you achieve your very own positive birth experience. These courses will cater for your preferences, whether its a hospital, birth-centre or home birth that you want, and fill you with the practical knowledge and information useful for the early weeks. Courses are available as weekly classes or to take over a weekend, and can be a great way to meet other expectant parents and get some hands-on experience. Find out more here.
Yoga is often advised as one of the safest ways to keep exercising during pregnancy, but did you know that it can also help during the actual birth itself? Our Mindful Pregnancy Yoga class is a wonderful way for you to practice specialised movements and breathing techniques that can aid during childbirth. This class is a wonderful space for you to mindfully connect with your unborn baby whilst they are getting ready to meet you! Find out more here.
If you’re interested in learning about hypnobirthing, but don’t have the time for a long course, why not try out of of our shorter workshops? We teach you the basic techniques and strategies so that you can practice at home as you approach your due date. The more time you have to familiarise yourself with the information and practice the techniques the better! Find out more here.
Home Birth Mornings
Our special Home Birth Mornings are a wonderful opportunity to learn about birthing at home. We hear interesting stories about home birth, discuss the issues surrounding home birth as a choice and finally there is a ‘Comfort in Labour’ workshop, during which Natalie gets out her doula bag and goes through all the things that make all the difference to mothers feeling soothed, safe and secure. Find out more here.
