Welcome to the world of pregnancy, birth and parenting!

My name is Nora Abdul Rahman, a mum of 3, founder of birthlings and co-founder of The Nest Wellness studio, located in Jalan Pasar Gadong (Next to Taurean at The Arch)

My passion in women’s wellness started in 2006, when I registered as a yoga teacher in Singapore. In 2014, I certified as a  prenatal yoga teacher, which then opened new doors, one on a path to a (passionate!) Educator in Childbirth preparation. In 2016, i certified in childbirth education with AMANI Birth in Singapore. The year after I certified as a KGHypnobirthing teacher, in London UK. I have also recently completed the Spinning Babies Parent Educator training in April 2019, in The Netherlands with the Amazing Spinning Babies founder Gail Tully.

It is important to take note that Childbirth educators are professionals in the normalcy of pregnancy and birth and we view & discuss pregnancy and birth topics that are normal, natural and instinctive. We do not give medical advice and would urge you to consult with your doctor on issues that are out of our scope. We also encourage communication with your caregivers to be an open, honest and a respectful one.

Childbirth preparation / foundation class.

Almost all expectant parents that come to my childbirth classes have expressed their anxieties with their upcoming birth. I hope to shed some light into the mysteries & miracles of birth and get parents to get educated, empowered and excited about their baby’s birthday! We also find that daddies-to-be will leave with newfound awe and respect of the amazing bodies of mothers during pregnancy, labor and birth and also leave the classes with the knowledge on how to actively support mums during pregnancy labor and birth.

The childbirth preparation classes are scheduled every month. More information on the classes are found on this link.

This class is for parents.

Spinning babies parent class.

Spinning babies parent class highlights your baby’s active role in birth.  You and your birth partner will learn Spinning babies techniques before and during labor to help make room for baby! For more information on spinning babies, please visit their link here.

This class is for parents who have attended our birth preparation classes.

Prenatal Yoga class.

The prenatal wellness classes are a good addition to the birth classes. In this class, we explore prenatal yoga poses that can help offer relief to some of the common complaints in expecting mothers and also help bring balance back to mothers to help achieve an easier labor & birth. I urge mothers to be active during their pregnancy to help maintain balance in their changing bodies.

This class is for mothers only.
