This single session is intended for couples in their third trimester 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. Each couple will receive their own long woven wrap (similar to the Rebozo used by Mexican and Central American Indigenous birth workers) 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. Your partner or support person will learn skills to support the laboring mom more effectively.
This class does not cover general childbirth information. We strongly suggest taking one of our Childbirth Preparation classes (or one with another educator) prior to this class. This class is best when you are further along in your pregnancy, ideally between 32 and 38 weeks.
Location: Empowered Beginnings, 3074 Whitney Avenue, Bldg 2, Suite 211, Hamden, CT. Upcoming Dates: Classes are in person and limited to 10 couples each. Thursdays from 6:30 pm to 9 pm-

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!"
