Labor Prep is your "what to expect when you're expecting, start-to-finish, run-through of physiologic birth. Meaning, what happens when you just let your body do what it's supposed to for all the stages of labor. I'll help you understand what's happening in your body, how labor amps up and when it really is GO-time.
Labor and birth are normal and natural processes. Your body knows what to do. Sometimes, though, situations arise that may require you to be in the hospital longer than maybe you planned. Medical Interventions & Cesarean Class builds off of Labor Prep to talk you through all of the major things that could come up in the hospital setting - tools to help you have a healthy baby/mom and vaginal birth. Understand why certain things may be suggested, learn how to work with your hospital care team and navigate those conversations, make informed decisions and have a baseline of what to expect!
If you are planning to labor without pain medication, you need this Coping with Labor Class! My BIGGEST tip to anyone (even women on the street) is to PREP! You wouldn't run a marathon without training first - this is the same idea! Spend customized time learning hands-on techniques, breathing, relaxation on how to cope with labor AND support your partner in labor. Partners this one’s especially for you!! You are essential to her birth experience! Let me help you help her - and not feel so overwhelmed or helpless in the process :)
