Workshop will include:
Couples Prenatal Yoga and Relaxation
Easy partner yoga to build trust and communication which is fundamental for
birth and parenting.
Partners learn to give a simple prenatal massage that can be done at the
bedside. Partners gain confidence in helping to ease discomforts experienced
in pregnancy and labor.
This teaches mom to massage her partner with simple Shiatsu and Thai yoga
massage techniques. It is designed to give the pregnant mom a workout to
strengthen her back, hips, and thighs as well as nurturing her partner.
You will learn comfort and support measures and practice positions for labor
and pushing. We will have an active discussion of what is happening physically
and emotionally during labor and birthing. Birth plan options and routine
procedures will be included as well.
Newborn and Infant Massage
Studies have shown that there are many benefits to the newborn and infant
when massage is performed for 15 minutes daily. Learn how to relieve your
baby's stress, increase the baby's body weight, and strengthen the immune
system. We will practice on baby dolls.
Relaxation, Visualization and Breathing
Learn to use relaxation and visualization along with various breathing
techniques during pregnancy, labor and birthing.
