Birthing Naturally: Partner Supported Childbirth
What you will learn
This course includes time for parents to prepare mentally, physically, and emotionally by improving and mastering various relaxation techniques coupled with natural abdominal breathing. These exercises are vital to parents who wish to allow themselves the ability to let go and surrender to the beautiful unfolding of birth. The birthing partner/coach will use the information and tools learned to maintain an active role in supporting mom during pregnancy, labor and birth.
Our course includes 8 weeks of instruction, study guides, helpful resources, and instruction in coach/partner preparedness, proper exercise and nutrition, anatomy and physiology of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd stage labor, evidence based care (objectively discussing the effects, benefits, risks, and alternatives of interventions and medications for both mother and infant), complications and cesarean sections, compiling birth preferences (also known as a birth plan) as a family, and postpartum preparation including infant care, supplies, and breastfeeding in the immediate postpartum. Relaxation techniques and childbirth videos are also included.
Classes have a minimum of 3 and maximum of 8 couples to allow for optimal interaction with the material and other participants. We recommend scheduling this class to end by 35-37 weeks of gestation. Advance registration is required.
