Yoga for Labor & Birth:
A semi-private workshop for expectant mothers and their birth partners
Bring your birth partner and spend the afternoon together learning useful tools to help support you through labor and birth. No matter how you choose to birth your baby these tools can be used both at home and in the hospital to provide emotional & physical support. Your partner will learn comfort techniques, such as touch, acupressure, rebozo, and constructive coaching while you practice giving them feedback.
We will explore positional changes, visualization, movement and breath to help encourage labor to progress and ease discomfort. In addition, we will cover the signs & stages of labor and self-advocacy techniques in a way that is both easy to grasp and remember when the time comes.
Wear comfortable clothing, bring your sense of humor, no yoga experience is required.
