This workshop provides you with tools to connect with your partner during labor and to help the process be as comfortable as possible throughout the intensity of this transition into your new life.
Stacy offers the space for you to explore how to ground the body and mind through meditation, “birth mantras,” and breath-work. You and your partner experience different yoga positions and movements that can aid the baby’s journey from womb into your arms. You also learn to use massage techniques, acupressure, and zone therapy to grow closer as a couple and assist the body in relaxing and opening. We also consider aromatherapy and hydrotherapy for soothing and comfort.
Enjoy this time with your partner in preparation for your baby’s birth.
Each couple receives a handbook, as well as a bottle of handcrafted massage oil.
