Maybe you’d like a natural birth, but you waited too long to take a class that lasts several weeks, or you and your partner have too many scheduling conflicts.  This workshop is perfect for you!  Spend two days immersed in birth knowledge, practice, and preparation.  The material covered is similar to our Intuitive Birth class.

If you’d like a natural birth, this is the ideal class for you! In addition to increased emotional security regarding birth, Intuitive Birth students are 68% less likely to have a cesarean than the average mother. 70% of Intuitive Birth students who give birth vaginally do so with no pain medication.

Below is class-by-class content for our workshop.  For more check out our FAQ.

Nurturing Your Baby & Yourself: Nutrition & Exercise for Pregnancy
Specific information on how to stay healthy and low risk, as well as some basic information about breastfeeding.

Reframing Your Birth Concepts
Learn about the many things you can do during pregnancy to positively affect your birth experience.  Begin to examine your beliefs about labor and birth, setting yourself on the path towards a comfortable, fearless birth.

Your Birth Begins
Physiology of the first stage of labor, including what your body and baby are doing during this time, how fear impacts labor, and how to stay comfortable without medications.

The Journey Continues: Active Labor & Transition
A wide variety of comfort measures for the most challenging part of labor, including positioning, massage, relaxation, and more.

Second Stage & Birth
There are many ways to give birth to your baby.  Learn about positions, comfort, and why the first hours after your baby’s birth are so important. Begin to practice these with our first in-class labor rehearsal.

Off the Beaten Path
Learn how to make your birth experience a positive one, no matter what path your labor takes.  Explore potential complications (including how to differentiate between complications and variations of normal) and learn about cesarean sections, including how best to avoid having one.

Creating Your Birth
Learn how to evaluate the nearly endless options that are available to you during your labor and birth, and the merits of “birth planning.”  Determine your own top priorities for your birth, and how to translate those into an effective birth plan.

Putting it All Together
Put into practice the many techniques you’ve learned so far with a second in-class labor rehearsal, as well as a review of the stages of labor and an in-depth discussion of comfort measures.

Postpartum & Your New Family
How will you feel and what will you need postpartum?  How do babies sleep?  Why do babies cry? What is breastfeeding like?  These questions and more will be answered.
