Practicing Labor Skills

Labor is hard work! This call will give you the opportunity to review and practice labor coping skills that can be used to manage your labor more comfortably. A certified childbirth educator will review positioning, relaxation, breathing and distraction techniques. Use of alternative therapies such as massage, aromatherapy and water therapy will also be discussed. You will rotate through “labor stations” to practice skills and have the opportunity to get your questions answered so that you and your partner feel well prepared with a variety of ways to cope with labor.

This class is recommended for expectant parents who:

  • Want to practice their labor skills used with a previous birth
  • Want to practice skills learned in an Online Childbirth Class
  • Want more practice time after attending a childbirth preparation class

You will receive a copy of the book Understanding Birth.

A tour of The Birth Center is NOT INCLUDED in this class; please call 719-571-3101 to register for a tour.

Note: This class is intended to be taken AFTER your have taken a childbirth preparation course (or online course).
