The last in a four part Childbirth Education Series, this session is designed for pregnant women and their partners. We will discuss ways a partner might support a woman during the last few weeks of pregnancy, labor, and the immediate post-partum period. We will discuss (and try out) a number of techniques often used by doulas (professional labor support person) such as—massage, aromatherapy, walking, swaying, and verbal encouragement. Pregnant women may of course attend this session alone but are encouraged to bring along one potential labor support person (husband, partner, mother, friend). Please register for this session.
