Courage, Comfort, & Joy: A Childbirth Preparation Course

November 20 @ 12:00 pm - November 21 @ 3:00 pm

This workshop–designed and taught by Heather Hughes, a certified Birth Doula, Massage Therapist, and Childbirth Educator–will help you and your support person prepare for the many stages of labor. Heather will walk you through the evolution of labor, and explore with you how it can look and feel physically, emotionally, and, spiritually.

This workshop includes:

* how to create balance in your body for an easier birth
* practices to help your baby get into the most optimal position before and during labor
* the many labor positions and comfort measure tools you can utilize during early labor, active labor, and transition
* tools for birth partners to feel more involved, grounded, and confident in their role
* extra support for those going through the birthing process on their own
* breathing techniques and exercises that will help you navigate intense sensations, allowing you to find your breath rhythm that helps the body soften and the baby to rotate down and into the pelvis

Questions of all kinds are welcome, and a safe space will be created for all! Heather has been teaching these courses for 6 years and has supported over 150 families in the birthing process.
