For Pregnant Women and Their Partners
New mothers often ask, “What will labor be like?” “How will I cope with the pain?”
Their partners often wonder, “Will I be able to help her the way she needs?”
In this 2-hour workshop you’ll both become more aware of how to connect with each other and feel more confident in your labor and birth with an overview of the primary tools that can help. You’ll also learn about the normal process of labor and how our environment affects it.
Additional topics include…
• Breathing, massage, acupressure and relaxation techniques
• Specific movements that may help your baby move into a more optimal position for birth
• Positions that can help mothers cope with the pain of labor
By the end of class you’ll both feel more prepared and excited about your baby’s birth. You can take this class several times if you want, and at any stage of your pregnancy.
