By request we are doing a 1-day class this month, instead of our usual 3-week series. Saturday, July 30th from 10am-4pm (or maybe 5). We will share a potluck lunch with informal sharing while we eat.
The class is interactive with lots of opportunity to share, process, and learn from each other.
In general, we will cover:
Developing a positive attitude for birth
VBAC safety and myths
Fear releasing, and discussing fears and expectations (of both partners)
Creating your birth space and birth team
The stages of labor (a very detailed discussion and how to progress and cope with each stage)
Positions for labor and birth
Comfort measures and relaxation
Common complications and remedies
And much more!
The class is $125 per couple ($100 for ICAN of Austin members)
All classes are held at our office at 1825 E 38 1/2 Street.
