Sat. 11/2/19, 1:30-4:30 PM
$80/Couple at ODD Silver Lake, 4343 W. Sunset Blvd, Suite 205
This workshop is designed for those who are wishing to give birth without medication, with their partners by their side. Together, you will learn about the phases of normal birth, what to expect from your birthing body and how your baby participates!
Laboring persons will learn about breathing and vocalizing for labor, position changes, deep relaxation, and other methods of being with sensations of birth. Partners will learn labor support techniques such as touch and massage, encouragement, nourishment, trust, and grounding. Because it’s smart to be prepared for all potential outcomes, you also will be given materials to help you have the best Cesarean birth or epidural experience you can!
“Laboring Together” is taught from the yogic perspective by Jocelyn Brown, LM, who has 13 years of birth experience and 6 years of yoga teaching experience.
Bring: We’ll be doing some active position changes, massage practice and some yoga poses, so wear comfortable attire. Consider bringing a yoga mat for at least one person in every couple. (You can rent a mat at the front desk!)
