Prerequisite: Childbirth Preparation Class or previous birth
This class is designed to build on the skills you learned in a Childbirth Preparation class and provide a more in-depth, hands on experience for learning comfort techniques for labor such as positioning, massage, and breathing. Alternative therapies such as aromatherapy, acupressure, visualization and imagery techniques will be reviewed in a quiet, casual environment so that you and your support person are well equipped with a variety of tools for labor.
This class will help you:
- Master additional skills for managing the pain of labor
- Explore the enhanced role of partners during labor and birth
- Refresh your skills from a previous birth
Labor Lab should be taken with your partner/labor support person after your childbirth preparation course or as a refresher course.
The class fee is $30 per couple.
