One of our goals with Childbirth Education Classes is to help couples get truly excited for their births!
Not just the birth day of their baby, but the whole miraculous process of birth!
By balancing head knowledge (expanding your understanding of the physiology and chemistry of labour) and heart knowledge (incorporating music, art, movement, massage and story telling; learning to tap into the incredible forces of hope and love in labour), Renfrew County Doula’s Childbirth Education helps mothers and their support partners holistically prepare for this timeless right of passage; the journey that ends with a beginning, a new chapter, a new life.
Topics include, but are by no means limited to:
- late pregnancy changes
- early, active, and transitional labour
- natural and medical pain relief
- pushing and birth
- cesarean delivery
- immediate postpartum and baby care
- continued postpartum expectations and comfort measures
- newborn and infant feeding
All couples (“couples” here meaning the pregnant mother and her choice of support person) will receive goodies, a resource package with more optional preparation ‘homework’ to be done in your own time, and information on other relevant local resources.
