Natural Birth Workshop

The goal of Beaumont’s Natural Birth Workshop is to provide you and your support person with an introduction to the knowledge and skills that may help you have a natural birth experience.  The workshop will increase your confidence and assist you in developing a personal plan for your baby’s birth.  

The goal of the workshop is to help you work with your body to increase comfort, enhance the birth process, and decrease or eliminate the need for pain medications. During the workshop, we will focus on natural techniques for labor and birth.  Immediate post birth mother and baby care and initial breastfeeding information will also be covered. We suggest you take Preparing for Breastfeeding and Baby Care and Safety to further enhance your knowledge in these areas.

This is a “hands-on”, active class where we will practice positioning, breathing for labor and birth, and learn a variety of comfort measures including ways to handle labor challenges. Please wear comfortable clothing that allows freedom of movement.

You will receive a natural birth book and a web-based resource for enhanced learning and review.   We encourage further study and practicing the skills learned in the workshop as an on-going part of your birth preparation.

The workshop is taught by a registered nurse/ childbirth educator.  You and your support person should attend this Natural Birth Workshop together and plan to complete it about 4- 6 weeks before your baby’s due date. Please bring two pillows and a blanket or exercise mat to class for practice time. 

Workshops are scheduled in three formats:  One full Saturday session, two consecutive Saturday sessions or three weeknight sessions on consecutive weeks. We recommend the multi-session class to allow for reinforcement of skills and learning/integrating information over several sessions.

A follow-up session of the workshop is held 4-8 weeks after your baby is born.  You, your support person, and your baby are invited to attend a Beyond Birth class where postpartum adjustment time and priorities, Infant Massage, and parenting myths and realities will be discussed. Please visit us at Beyond Birth.  The fee for this class is included in the cost of the Natural Birth Workshop.

Please register early as classes fill quickly.
