Labor Comfort 101: Tricks and Tools for the Birth Companion

The goal of Beaumont’s “Labor Comfort 101: Tricks and Tools for the Birth Companion” is to provide you and your support person with the knowledge and tools that will help you with your birth experience.  Through this education and practicing of tools we hope to increase you and your birth companion’s confidence in preparation for the birth of your baby. 

This is a “hands-on”, active class where we will practice:

·         Labor and Birth Positions

·         Breathing Techniques for Labor and Birth

·         Comfort Tools for the Birth Companions to use during Labor and Birth

·         Pain Relief Options

If you are looking for a more comprehensive class that covers: pregnancy issues, stages of labor, medical interventions and options, cesarean birth, and newborn / new mother care.  We strongly encourage you to also attend a Childbirth Education Class. Options would include: Childbirth Education, Understanding Childbirth Express, Childbirth Independent Study,  or HypnoBirthing

If you are planning a  Natural Birth this content is taught in our Natural Birth Workshop and this class will better suit your needs.   

The class is taught by a registered nurse/ childbirth nurse educator.  You and your support person should attend this class 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. Please wear comfortable clothing that allows freedom of movement.

If you have any questions about this class or if it is right for you, please contact us.
