BIRTH TOOLS CLASS: labor prep crash course
Location: Marathon Chiropractic, 1715 Wilma Rudolph Blvd, Clarksville, TN
Time: 4:30 – 7:30 pm
You’ve read some books, registered at the hospital, chosen a baby name and shopped for a car seat. But are you ready for labor itself? What are you going to do when contractions start?
Even if you’re planning for an epidural (at some point), you’ll need to know a thing or two to make the early part of labor bearable. And guess what? Learning a few simple positions and tricks can make the whole process go faster and reduce your risk of a c-section for a “stalled labor” or “stuck baby.” Do I have your attention now?
Going all natural? If you’re committed to the no drugs approach, you’ll need to do more than refuse the epidural. What are you planning to do for pain management instead? Wouldn’t it be helpful to have some tools to make the whole process not only bearable but maybe even empowering, too?
No matter what you think you’ll do during labor, knowing how to stay calm, relaxed and stress-free will benefit you every step of the way.
In this class you’ll learn positions for laboring at home and in the hospital; positions for standing, walking, sitting, kneeling, reclining and lying down; positions especially useful AFTER you get an epidural; positions for pushing your baby down and out; tips and tools for relieving pain and bringing comfort such as counterpressure points and massage skills; tips for moms and for their support team (husband, family, friends).
- Planning a home birth? All of these tips and tools will apply to you, too.
- Not your first birth? These skills fit every momma, from first baby to tenth baby.
- Already have a doula? She will thank you for taking this class! You’ll better understand her suggestions.
The Birth Tools class will be taught by Heidi Duncan of Expecting New Life Birth Services. Dr. Dale Brown will be a guest speaker, discussing the benefits of chiropractic care for mothers and babies.
