Labor & Birth
Part one of the birth class series provides basic information on the process of birth and labor for the mother and baby. We will review hospital and home birth procedures along with the beginning visions of creating the labor and birth that suites you best. We will review past birth experiences and how to build your medicine bag for the next birth or entering for the first time into birth.
Part two of the birth class series will focus on creating space for the mother and baby, and the birth team including birth partner roles. It will involve visualization, hands on comfort techniques, art and fear clearing to assist in communication and creating a safe space for the mother to birth in an empowering way. We talk about mindfulness in supporting, techniques and the power of pain.
The baby moon period after the baby arrives is a special time where bonding, restoration, transformation and healing takes place. This part of the series reviews breastfeeding, postpartum healing, and basic newborn care.
We will do hands on breastfeeding positions, swaddling, diapering and burping.
