Who doesn’t love a nice picnic, with good food, catching up and meeting new friends and watching the kids play?
I certainly do and I really want to bring this simple joy back. I want our son to grow up enjoying the outside world and playing with other kids like we used to. I want him to be surrounded by food that will nourish him and I want to be surrounded by others that share this simple vision. I also think this is a great way for Mums and Dads to simply take some time out, meet new friends and also be inspired for some new recipe ideas.
So… I have created the Bring Back The Picnic.
First Monday of every month ill be setting up a picnic blanket at Frascott Park in Varsity Lakes at 9am. This is a beautiful park with lots of grass, beautiful fig trees and shade and a awesome kids park. We will be setting up next to the park under a tree.
What to bring; A healthy plate to share if possible. One of the motivations for this is to share healthy cooking ideas and get inspired. I don’t know about you but I often get caught making the same things so its always nice to find new recipes. Don’t have time to make food? Don’t stress, if a certain day (and we all have them) cooking just isn’t going to happen for whatever reason please don’t be deterred, come anyway, there will always be food to share and I think “those days” are really the days that you need to take time out the most.
Time and date: 9am first Monday every month, commencing Feb 5th
Where: Frascott park, 24A Yodelay St, Varsity Lakes QLD 4227
Hypnobirthing helped me to eliminate all my fears about birth and i found myself excited and eager for the birth of our baby. The classes were extremely helpful and i learnt so much! It really helped my partner know as well his role during labour and how he could support me best and on the day that made it such an amazing bonding experience for us! Highly recommended.”
Hypnobirthing was an amazing experience for both my partner Renee and I and our beautiful little baby boy Leonardo Phoenix. When we enrolled we were overcome with the love shared by the coordinator Kate whose experience in midwifery and Hypnobirthing made her such an excellent teacher. The classes were an amazing intimate experience in a Yoga studio where we were taught the theory behind it and then got to relax and practice hypnobirthing in such a calming environment. Overall I was very overcome with how great Hypnobirthing classes were for me as a father and a husband to be able to connect on such a deeper level with my wife and for us both to focus on the connection with our little Leo, and it resulted in an absolutely AMAZING experience at birth for us.
Hypnobirthing was a magical experience to have and I can’t imagine birthing any other way. The classes helped me prepare for a completely natural and stress free labour. It helped me to release all fears and actually enjoy the birthing of my baby. I felt empowered and knew that my body was performing the task it was meant to do. The information provided exceded all my expectations. I could not have asked for a better experience and it’s all thanks to Kate at Coastal Birthing and Beyond.
I am forever grateful that my husband and I had the opportunity to experience 1:1 hypnobirthing classes with Kate prior to the birth of our first baby. The classes gave me practical, authentic skills that helped me prepare for birth with excitement, and birth my baby with confidence. I think Kate’s extensive experience as a midwife in addition to her hypobirthing background is what makes her classes such a valuable experience. Just attending the classes themselves was a lovely experience because Kate creates such a beautiful, calming and supportive environment to teach in. I have extremely fond memories of the birthing experience my husband and I shared. He was was my rock and Kate’s guidance undoubtedly made my husband the amazing birthing partner that he was. I strongly recommend Kate’s hypnobirthing classes to all expecting parents, if you have any doubts cast them aside and just go for it, it can change your life! With my second baby due soon, I am looking forward to having a refresher course with Kate so that all of our hypnobirthing tools are fresh in our mind. Many thanks again Kate, and look forward to seeing you soon.
I was hesitant at first about these classes that my wife had booked, but by the end of the first class I was totally onboard, looked forward to each class as my relaxation for the week and loved practising at home. I felt prepared and excited for our birth and how i could best support my wife through this experience.
Amazing very personal sharing of knowledge. Loved having private sessions, loved that kate is an experienced midwife as well as hypnobirthing practitioner. Fantastic, very highly recommended experience!
Kates knowledge as a midwife was a brilliant compliment to her Hypnobirthing training. The techniques she taught us enabled us a drug-free birth despite trying conditions. Highly recommended.
