In this 2 hour workshop, open to all pregnant people, their doulas and partners, we will help you create a Birth Plan. Birth plans are a great way to understand what you can expect in the process of giving birth. They are also a helpful starting point for conversations and communication with your care provider. 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 learn breathing and relaxation techniques for different stages of labor and safe partner massage techniques. We will practice using natural pain management methods such as counter pressure, and teach you how to use props such as birth balls and rebozos, as well as other physical comfort measures to help you feel your best during pregnancy, to aid in labor and birth and for easier postnatal recovery.
