Upright Labor Positions for a Faster and More Efficient Birth

This Active Comfort Techniques for Labor class is an add on class with additional comfort measures.  Taught by an experienced doula or nurse educator, this class uses upright positions and techniques that are used worldwide to reduce the discomfort of labor and the length of labor.  Modern techniques from such organizations as Spinning Babies ® and Dancing For Birth™ are also discussed.

This is an ACTIVITY based class.  Please dress comfortably, bring your support person, and be ready (maybe with a yoga mat and pillow) to practice most of the techniques.  This is currently being offered as a live Webinar and lasts about 1.5 hours.
