This hands-on information is not covered in any other local prenatal classes! Tips, tales and practical stuff to help you feel more prepared for labour.
“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).
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!
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)
