About the Event
In this workshop you will learn practical tools to support you and your birth partner to navigate physically and emotionally through the process of labor and delivery.
Birth partners will learn to use hands on techniques to offer support and comfort. We will practice positions and see how breath and posture can be used to encourage the progress of labor, ease pain and take pressure off the pelvic floor. We will learn how to use breath as a tool for both body and mind, a support to ease tension and fear.
This workshop includes practice as well as discussion.
