I have spent some time updating the design of some of my activities and will update a few more going forward. If you have purchased any of the previous designs and would like the new ones, just drop me a line and I'll send you the new ones.
New designs have been added to the 'Birth Environment card sort', Pain Management cards & Positions for Labour & Birth cards.
I hope you'll like the new designs and please continue to send me your feedback!
How to be a supportive birth partner: Now also available as A4 handout (print-your-own pdf) and a s card set (A4 or A5 print-your-own-pdf).

Twin Birth Process Time Line (in words) - pdf
A card sort for twin-parents-to-be to explore possible time line of a vaginal twin birth.
Cards are separated into three categories:
The activity will create one time line in words but is also shows what happens when to each person involved. This activity can be used in big or small groups and is also great for 1-2-1 sessions.
The activity can be used on it's own or alongside one of my graphic labour time lines (print-your-own pdf or banner).
£1.50 print-your-own pdf.
6 sets of new affirmation cards:
Affirmations for labour & birth (singleton)
Affirmations for labour & birth (multiples)
Affirmations for breastfeeding (singleton)
Affirmations for breastfeeding (multiples)
Affirmations for (new) parents (singleton)
Affirmations for (new) parents (multiples)
All of these have 12-24 different affirmation cards. To be shared with parents and parents-to-be to explore affirmations for labour, birth, breastfeeding and parenting before their babies are born. Invite parents to change, add or make their own affirmations for their own situations. Invite them to use these as inspiration or an example.
Hormones and feelings - activity
Print-your-own activity (pdf). Enabling parents to explore the relation between their feelings and their hormones. Using the 'feelings' cards to add to pictures or scenarios. Then turning them over to see which hormones these feelings are linked to will give participants a good idea how they might be feeling in certain places or situations.
Includes instructions, 6 pages (6 cards each page) of positive feelings and 6 pages (6 cards each page) of negative feelings. 6 pages each of 'Adrenaline' and 'Oxytocin' cards to print on the back of the feelings cards.
You'll also need: some prepared scenarios (stories, printed or telling them) or pictures of different birth environments. Neither of these are included.
The design for these two labour line add ons has been updated. New pictures, clearer font and new logo. My logo is now only at the bottom of the page rather than on every card.
Your Birth Environment.
Updated to add a few more pictures, other pictures have been replaced.
What is the 'Your Birth Environment' activity?
Parents to select pictures to represent their ideal birth environment. Includes 4 blanc cards. If you laminate the cards, parents can draw/write additional ideas onto the blank cards with whiteboard markers. Could also be used as cards to trigger discussion about birth environment. Available in A4, A5 or A6.
This activity has been updated and now contains 18 cards to enable facilitators to use them with groups of up to 18 people but also to offer more choice to the participants.
