Upcoming Childbirth Education Classes

Birth Partner Workshop

The primary factor that determines a person's sense of satisfaction regarding their birth experience is how supported they felt during the process. Who you surround yourself with and their capacity to offer support is therefore key to having a satisfying birth experience. This workshop focuses on sharing knowledge and skills with you and your birth partner so that your partner feels confident in how to support you during labor and birth. 

In this workshop you will:

  •  Learn the stages of labor 
  • The role of Oxytocin (love hormone) during birth 
  •  Learn comfort measures for each stage of labor 
  •  Learn about verbal, non-verbal, and hands on support
  •  Practice counter pressure, massage, the Rebozo, breathing techniques, and labor/birth positions
  • Create heart-art and birth affirmation cards

Investment: $70
