BIRTH PLANNING & YOGA FOR LABOR
These personalized sessions are also a helpful starting point for conversations with your care provider, which is often the first step toward realizing your birth plan and preferences. Most importantly, just by going through a birth plan, you are taking a big step to inform yourself about all of your choices. You will receive the most up-to-date information on birth practices, our comprehensive birth plan, hospital/birth-center packing list and simplified to-do lists and preparation materials. We'll also cover your rights and how to advocate for you needs at your place of birth so that you are better equipped for a smooth experience.
You will learn what to expect in labor, to notice the early signs, practice positions to labor at home and at a hospital or birth center, breathing and relaxation techniques and partner massage techniques for different stages of labor, learn how to use natural pain management techniques such as counter pressure, and we will teach you how to use props such as birth balls and rebozos, as well as other physical comfort measures.
Any of our birth prep classes may be customized to fit your specific needs.
The advantage of a private in-home session is that we will be able to show you methods and techniques for labor in your own home - how to labor on your bed, in the bathroom, how to use countertops and furniture to make the most of your time at home.
