Birth is a loving, exciting, RAW, REAL and sometimes challenging transition in life.
It requires a surrender, an openness, a heart-felt realness that knowledge alone WILL interfere with.
This day is a different take on the traditional Childbirth classes. It emphasizes LOVE, ritual and hope and blends it with the stages and physiology of labor and birth, staying connected as a couple, support (who to have at the birth, who not to invite), and planning for postpartum.
This is a day to fall in love with your partner (again), with Very Special Emphasis on partner preparation, acknowledging their vulnerability in this process and working to empower them and their emotional/spiritual role in this process. learn comfort measures for birth, confront fears in a safe environment, have a LOT of fun surrounded by other couples on their journey.
The anticipation, newness and preparation for pregnancy, labor and birth are so all-consuming that most often we forget that there is a FOURTH trimester.
Postpartum! And that our new baby is someone we have to learn about and relate to. It SOUNDS easy~
Then there is the complexity of feeding our baby...AND ourselves! All while managing our changing body, mood and relationships.
