“You will not use what we do not practice!”
Comfort + Coping is a 2-hour, virtual workshop and serves as a wonderful compliment to our One-Day Childbirth Education class or as a refresher course. This session will give you the guidance and space to practice what may work best during each stage of labor - with or without an epidural. Comfort + Coping also provides the ideal space for partners to experiment with hands-on support strategies and become more confident in their role as a labor support person.
We will focus on breathing techniques, birthing positions, massage and comforting touch, tools such as the birth ball, peanut ball, relaxation mantras, aromatherapy, and acupressure points.
- 2 hours of action oriented, personalized live instruction
- 30 minutes of pre-recorded video lessons to review positions, massage, and breathing after class
- 14-page interactive activity book, including Birthing Positions, Affirmations, and Massage Tips for Partners
- Live Office Hours on Zoom
- Access to Birthsmarter's Online Resource Directory for Pregnancy + Parenting
- Bonding and practice with your partner (think of it as a labor rehearsal!)
- An incredibly relaxing eventing (or the cheapest prenatal massage in town!)
This class is taught by Birthsmarter educator, Caprice.
Great as a standalone class for those who are looking for a refresher, planning for a VBAC, or already took a childbirth education class. Comfort + Coping is a part of our Childbirth Education classes for those looking for a more comprehensive experience. Pair with Postpartum Planning, Lactation (Not So) Basics, and Newborn Care classes for wrap around preparation! All classes include you + your support team.
In a world where it is difficult to keep sight of what is most important Birthsmarter aims to call our attention back to what is valuable. Do you notice that expectant parents spend more time choosing a stroller than they do a midwife or obstetrician? More time arranging their nursery than arranging comprehensive support for after the birth. As a business we have the power to convince you that pregnancy, birth, and the postnatal period are worth investing in. If we don’t, women and families suffer and you miss the opportunity to build an intentional foundation for your family; the foundation on which we’d like our society to rest.
Birthsmarter lives in the space where biology meets society, wisdom meets data, and empathy meets activism. We believe that transparency is the key to birth, babies, and business, that it is always worth investing in parents, and that together, we can change the world. Our unique birth and parenting classes offer expecting parents and their support team the information and practice that will enable them to think critically and improvise during high stakes moments. Our continuing education workshops empower health and wellness professionals to become trusted pillars of their perinatal community. We’re shaping the future, one birth at a time.
