Moving Through Labor
A workshop for expectant parents covering:
Pelvic bodywork and dynamics
Creating space in the pelvis
Position of the baby and its impact on labor
Understanding baby presentation, position, and attitude (head flexion)
Movements and techniques for preventing position related labor complications
Use of the rebozo
This workshop is great for first time parents, parents planning for a VBAC, and parents wishing for a smoother labor the second (or more!) time around.
Moving Through Labor is a modified version of Brittany’s widely acclaimed workshop, Creating Space, for birth professionals. It has been tailored to meet the needs of expectant couples.
Babies getting “stuck” in the pelvis is one of the most common reasons for cesareans, and can greatly affect the comfort a person is able to achieve in labor. Come learn more about preventing this complication and minimizing the risk of a cesarean due to malpositioning of the baby.
*Please note: this workshop is not a childbirth preparation class and is not intended to take the place of a childbirth preparation class. It is designed specifically for focusing on complications that can arise due to malpositioning of the baby.
“Having delivered twice at The Birth Center at LWC, I couldn’t be happier with my experiences. I felt so cared for and safe there. Welcoming, comforting, trustworthy—the combination of the homey feel I wanted with professional, experienced midwives and nurses let me relax, knowing I was in good hands. The midwives, always there when we needed them, also seemed to know just when to give us space. When pushing became difficult during my second birth, the midwife quickly assessed the situation and helped me get things back on track. I can’t imagine birthing anywhere else.”
