Women have been giving birth for as long as humans have been on the planet, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy and that doesn’t mean it’s always intuitive! This informative, affordable, hands-on birthing class will help you ease your birthing time and in preparing for the birth of your child.
In this 90-minute class you will gain valuable skills for coping with the strong sensations of birth while learning to connect with your birth partner. Some techniques we will include:
