Labour Prep for Couples


Event Details

This event is running from 12 November 2017 until 4 February 2018. It is next occurring on February 4, 2018 7:00 pm


This hands-on information is not covered in any other local prenatal classes!  Tips, tales and practical stuff to help you feel more prepared for labour. We will practise many labour positions and provide ideas for what the birth partner can do to help. Learn about medical informed consent (and how to really get it) so you both feel more control during the birth experience.

Topics include comfort measures that really work, positions for labour/birth, massage techniques, communicating effectively with each other and medical caregivers, strategies for avoiding unnecessary interventions.  We squeeze over 35 years of experience being doulas into a 2 hour session of fun and movement.

Suitable for first-time couples or parents having their subsequent kids.  Doulas and other support people welcome!
