This single session is intended for couples who have completed the 1-day, 2-day, or 4-week childbirth classes. It expands on intervention-free methods of labor management discussed in our prepared childbirth classes. Couples will get an opportunity to practice hands-on comfort techniques and coping skills to ease pregnancy discomforts, manage pain during labor, and help bring baby down into an optimal position for birth. Partners will learn skills to support the laboring mom more effectively. Each couple will leave with a "labor tool kit" which will include a long woven wrap (similar to the Rebozo used by Mexican and Central American Indigenous birth workers) and other materials that we present in class.
Fee: $75 per couple This class is free if you are registered as a doula client with Ashley & Dawn.
Testimonial: "Ashley is confident in her skill set and clearly passionate about child birth. Sure many birthing classes are informative, however, Ashley helps and prompts partners to assist moms with rebozo moves which can be used during the child birth experience. I highly recommend this course to anyone having a baby, especially first time parents that do not know what to expect!"
