This labor preparation intensive will give you the tools you need to enter your birth feeling equipped and empowered. Topics will include a discussion of the stages of labor, optimal positioning, breath work, and key positions to use during labor. I weave together comfort measures, yoga philosophy and postures, breath work, visualization and birth planning to help you actively and enthusiastically participate in your birth. For those seeking an active, participatory birth, this is a perfect complement to other childbirth education for first-time couples, and as a stand-alone refresher for second-time (or more!) moms.
You’re also invited to add a one-hour private consultation with Michelle. Individualized work gives you and your partner an opportunity to tap into her doula expertise, get specific advice around your birth plans, address any lingering concerns or worries, refresh skills learned in the Labor with Love workshop, and further deepen your partnership through the end of pregnancy.
