Topics include childbirth anatomy, informed consent, birth as a hormone-driven process, stages and phases of labor, comfort measures, medical interventions, transitions after birth and more! Pregnant parents may bring one partner to accompany them during the class. $250/couple. Register now!

Labor Support for Partners
March 17, 2019 10am - 1:30pm @ A Mother’s Haven
The Labor Support Workshop is a class dedicated to introducing, understanding and practicing comfort measures for pregnancy and childbirth. Whether planning to have a medicated or unmedicated birth, this workshop will prepare parents-to-be for more joyful and calm birthing experiences. Couples will learn a wide variety of pain relief and relaxation techniques including massage, breathing, positioning, rebozo, affirmations and connection during labor. The importance of introducing comfort measures prenatally, as well as how and when to use various techniques will be discussed. As a more in depth “practice” of labor, partners leave feeling more like doulas and ready support their pregnant partner. And mamas feel more confident and ready in their ability to manage labor! Ideally paired with a complete childbirth education class to establish foundational knowledge of the labor process, this workshop will then take couples above and beyond the basic techniques and exercises they’ve learned. $140/couple. Register now!
