ABOUT YOUR CLASS
So much of the partner’s role in birth has been minimized, which has limited their ability to connect and bond with their children. Labor Together is a class that shows parents how to prepare for childbirth and to do so as a strong unit.
There are ways partners can apply themselves to be a valuable support for moms, and this class is all about highlighting those ways.
In this two hour workshop expecting couples will learn and practice:
1. Ways to keep moms comfortable and relaxed
2. Breathing techniques that help ease labor
3. Touch support and counter pressure
4. Supported postures — kneeling, sitting, and standing — that are optimum for childbirth.
There will be lots of information — and packet of handouts will be provided so couples can review the material after the workshop.
Labor Together gives couples an opportunity to practice, communicate, and establish a dialogue that will help them build confidence in one another.
Partners will have a better idea of what to do when the time comes.
And Moms will know that he’s going to be with her every step of the way.
