Labor Coping, Positioning & Comfort Techniques
What you'll learn
- You will learn what you will need to get through an unmedicated labor. Your birth partner will learn to help create a calm and peaceful labor.
Labor is a very different place then most of us are accustomed. It doesn't follow our social rules, there is a special etiquette that should be followed and there are things that are helpful to expect and know how to move through. This class will explain what you and your partner can expect from labor from the movements, the sounds, the smells, and all the emotions that go along with it as well as give you the tools to cope in labor as a team.
Your partner will learn how to support you with breath coping techniques, comforting touch and anticipating your needs.
Who this course is for:
- Prenant women and their birth partners
I began working as a Birth Doula in 2012. I am an experienced Midwife Assistant and Childbirth Educator. I have attended 300+ births. I was trained by Ina May's team of midwives at The Farm as a midwife assistant. My birth philosophy is that there is not one “perfect” way to birth, rather each woman must meet birth in her own way at that moment. Over the years, I have found that a woman who understands the process of birth, feels safe and is supported by a helpful team, will birth quickly and ultimately feel empowered by her experience rather then be traumatized. So ensuring that your team understands your goals and understands their roll and how to help you, will lead to a successful birth experience!
My goal is to empower women to trust their intuition, to trust their bodies, to birth from a place of calm surrender rather then fear. I want women to feel like they took on Mount Everest and conquered!
