Easing Labour Pain is a live-but-online class that features information not covered in any other local prenatal workshop. We teach partners and companions to provide comfort during birth! It’s about the best 2 hours you can spend preparing for your birth.
The class features hands-on practice with your partner, shared stories, and practical information to help you prepare for labour. You’ll be able to ask questions from the safety and comfort of your home as they arise during the online workshop.
We will practise many labour positions and provide ideas for what the birth companion can do to help. Learn about medical informed consent (and how to really get it) so you both feel more control during the birth experience.
Topics include comfort measures that really work, positions for labour/birth, massage techniques, communicating effectively with each other and medical caregivers, strategies for avoiding unnecessary interventions. We squeeze over 35 years of experience being doulas into a 2 hour session of fun and movement.
Suitable for first-timers or parents having their subsequent kids. Doulas and other support people welcome!

“This was by far the most useful class we took! It helped us so much in labour with the actual hands-on practise and learning what some of our options are!” (C & S, 2017)
I really enjoyed the class. It would be such a beneficial class for all parents in different seasons .. 1st-5th baby etc. I think position was great to do. It never hurts to figure these comfort measures out before being in labour and the partner would definitely be feeling prepared to help mum out. (Amy, 2019)
