During this series of three classes, we cover the process of birth and preparing for labor, comfort measures and positioning, breathing techniques and partner support, and postpartum care for mom, baby, and the family.
Birth 101. This class covers the anatomy and physiology of the birth process, the stages of labor, labor progress and activities, fear and safety, possible interventions, physical and emotional changes and much more.
Comfort Measures for Childbirth. Discussion and practice of positioning, breathing, massage, acupressure, using the birth ball and peanut ball, Rebozo, partner support, and more. You and your partner will learn comfort measures and options for relaxation and focus during the stages of labor. Bring a pillow, your partner, any comfort items you may wish to use, and be ready to enjoy a relaxing and fun evening.
Postpartum Prep. This class provides an overview of after birth care for mom, feeding your new baby, the emotional changes in the early postpartum days, baby blues, hormones, newborn care, baby wearing, sleep and your new baby, etc.
