Description

The presence and participation of a birth partner can have an enormous impact on a mother’s satisfaction with her birth experience. Through partner yoga postures, breathwork, massage, and other comfort techniques, this workshop will give partners tools to confidently support their lovely mommas-to-be. Connecting with our partners during this deeply important transitional time, this hands-on exploration will help to open up a new way of looking at the process of labor. With an emphasis on a practical approach to helping labor progress more smoothly, we will workshop breathing techniques, intuitive touch for partners, as well as positions for labor to help manage pain and cultivate a relaxed state during birth.

This workshop is open to pregnant people at any stage of pregnancy and their birth partner. *No experience necessary*

Who this course is for:
  • Pregnant People and Their Support Partner
  • Expecting Parents

+ Labor Positions “Squats”

Squats are the most physiologically efficient position for labor, encouraging the hips to open and allowing gravity to help. Squats can increase the efficiency of contractions and shorten labor. We'll explore a few different options to see what feels best in your body.
