This couples workshop provides instruction on a wide range of simple techniques to achieve calmness, reduce discomfort and facilitate the process of labor. Couples will have ample opportunity to explore and practice techniques and to ask questions. The supporting partner will also gain confidence in his/her ability to provide support and comfort during the process of labor. This workshop is a great "stand-alone" workshop in preparation for labor and delivery but can also a helpful supplement to childbirth education classes. It covers material that is not typically provided in hospital-based classes. The information gained in this workshop can be used in hospital, birth center or home birth environments. Dress comfortably and bring a snack and water.
