About the Event
This comprehensive workshop offers learnings about the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy and birth. The idea of “physiology before force”, how to apply this to your pregnancy and birthing time. We will discuss and do activities to support mental preparation, an overview of the “hormone cocktail of birthing”, comfort measures as well as advocacy tools for both the Birthgiver and their Birth Partner.
Day 1: 10 am-4 pm (with lunch break) - You will learn all about the physiology of birth, how to prepare your baby and body for birth, belly mapping, how to navigate your birth environment, advocate for yourself, coping techniques, pain management, potential interventions, how to create the best mindset for birth, and more through participating in activities and learning
Day 2: 930 am-1230 pm - You will learn all about what to expect in the fourth trimester. We will go over some essentials of newborn and mom care. We will create a plan for your postpartum period that is specific to your family and chat about what to expect. You will leave with a workbook, recipes and so much more giving you ample knowledge about adjusting to your new life with your newborn.
