Childbirth Prep Class
Introducing SF Birth Center’s specific childbirth preparation class from Moon Belly Birth! The goal of the class is to build your tool box for birth, so that you can continually use your breath, labor positions, positive affirmations and support from your birth team as a way to soften and open the body.
We will build upon information and experiential learning. I bring my background in the science of pregnancy, birth and postpartum to teach you skills and provide with you a solid education that will leave you feeling excited to experience birth!
We spend the majority of class doing exercises including labor positions, comfort measures and breathing techniques. During this class we will spend time looking at our perceptions of discomfort and practice relaxation and breath awareness as coping mechanisms to face it. Partners will also practice massage techniques and supported postures.
The goal of class is to focus on how to best make space for baby both emotionally and physically. We will also look into variations of normal and potential complications, how they are handled at San Francisco Birth Center and what might be reasons to transport to the hospital.
The hope is for everyone to leave the weekend intensive feeling calm, prepared and excited about how transformative labor and birth are.
