This workshop covers all the basics that you and your partner need to know in preparation for labor. You will learn the signs of labor, milestones of the birthing process, options to consider, steps to take now in preparation for birth, and key issues to discuss with your doctor or midwife. You will practice proven comfort measures for managing contractions and, more importantly, how to access the power of these techniques. This workshop provides a holistic perspective on birthing needed for those seeking a natural birth, however the information gained in this class is also necessary and invaluable for those who need, or choose an epidural. Partners will learn proven labor support methods in order to participate more fully in this sacred event. This class includes more information and practical preparation than the typical hospital-based class.
The information gained in this workshop may be used in hospital, birth center or home birth environments. This workshop is a great supplement, or alternative to a hospital class.
