An in-person workshop in Moscow, ID

Upcoming dates:

June 24th, 2023, 1:00-4:30 PM

Childbirth is formative in a family's journey. This workshop provides the tools and practice to go into labor prepared with tools to cope, whether you are hoping to birth unmedicated or planning to request pain medication. This course also provides your birth partner with a toolkit that they can combine with their closeness and knowledge to support you well through your labor. Labor can be a time when partners feel helpless and laboring women feel alone - my goal is to give you the tools so that does not happen.

Comfort & Coping is a three-and-a-half-hour workshop that serves as a wonderful compliment to a traditional birth class or as a stand-alone refresher course. This session will give you the guidance and space to understand and practice what may work best during each stage of labor - with or without an epidural. Comfort & Coping also provides the ideal space for partners to experiment with hands-on support strategies and become more confident in their role as a labor support person.

We will explore nutrition during labor, breathing techniques, birthing positions and movement (and when and why to use them), massage and comforting touch, and tools such as the birth ball, peanut ball, relaxation and visualization, birth affirmations & sound, TENS unit, and basic aromatherapy.

Because this course contains so much information and hands-on practice, I ask that you be at least 32 weeks along by the date of the workshop so that it will stay fresh on your minds.
