No matter what your ideal birth looks like, the majority of families will benefit from learning about natural pain relief options!
During this hands-on class, we explore valuable tools and techniques that can help mom AND her birth partner stay relaxed, comfortable, and positive during labor. We will also address a variety of labor positions and their benefits. Birth partners will leave this class with a deep understanding about how touch and intimacy can impact a person in labor. We will conclude this class with a discussion on the importance of relaxation in labor, and a guided visualization exercise. Partners will approach their baby’s due date with confidence, knowing how to support mom throughout labor and birth. We highly encourage expectant persons to attend with their partner, husband, wife, or other birth support person, but individuals will also benefit from this workshop.
