This class is designed for expectant mothers (and their support person) who have already taken a Prepared Childbirth class. The class will explore the mind-body connection, discuss beliefs about birth, and address fears and concerns surrounding birth and/or parenting in order to help prepare women for birth they desire. The class will include practicing breathing and guided imagery which both lead to optimal relaxation during contractions and reduce the fear-tension-pain cycle.
The class will also review comfort techniques and practice positions that promote comfort and help labor to progress. The class is interactive and hands-on, so clients will need to dress comfortably and bring a pillow, birth/exercise ball (if they have one), and bottle of water to class. Clients will receive a guided imagery CD to practice at home (included in price of the class).
Prerequisite: Prepared Childbirth One-Day Class or Four-Week Series Best taken during the 7th month of pregnancy.
Fee: $50 per couple - includes a "Guided Imagery for Childbirth" CD.
Registration is required. Please register online or call 610-738-2300.
