Yoga for Labor and Birth

Cost is $50 for individual and $75 for individual and birth partner(s)*
* Groups of 3 are welcome and will be charged the $75 individual plus birth partner rate if they are further accompanied by a doula, family member, or if they are a non-traditional family with more than 2 co-parents.
In this workshop you will learn practical tools to support your physical and emotional comfort throughout labor.
There will be time to reflect on and discuss how you feel and act in times of discomfort so that you can explore the comfort measures that may work best for you. We will also discuss how particular comfort measures may or may not fit into your intended labor and birth plan.
We will practice comfort measures such as: Positioning, Breath work, Posture, Movement, Hands-on support from your birth partner, & Mantra
You will learn how to use each of these tools as a means to ease both body and mind. We will also discuss how these simple comfort measures can contribute to the progression of your labor, and minimize the amount of time you may spend in pain and overwhelm. While we will take the time discuss our concerns and fears surrounding labor and birth, there will be a very strong emphasis on creating a loving and empowered experience.
If possible, it is recommended that you bring:
– a notebook and pencil
– a wide & long scarf, or cloth baby wrap to use as a rebozo
