Discover techniques to help you and your partner through labor and birth at this in-person workshop.
Get prepped for the big day – the day your baby is born! While you can’t know exactly what to expect from your labor, you and your partner can practice techniques to prepare you to have the best possible experience. Join doula, childbirth educator, and mother of two Natalie Evans for this hands-on workshop that explores the ins and outs of labor, and find out what you and your partner can do to work through it together.
In this workshop, you will learn:
• How labor begins (and how to know when you’re really in labor!)
• What to expect from each of the three stages of labor
• Relaxation techniques and comfort measures to get you through contractions
• Hands-on ways for partners to help throughout labor and birth
Through a combination of discussion, experiential exercises, handouts, and viewing of birth videos, this workshop will better prepare you for labor. You and your partner will leave with a variety of techniques to help you manage contractions through each stage, as well as specific comfort measures for home & hospital. Whether you’ve already taken a childbirth prep series but are looking for specific tips about labor, or you’re having a second (or third!) baby and are looking for a refresher, this workshop is a perfect way to get ready for your baby’s birth. Recommended in the third trimester of pregnancy.
