Offerings

 
Breathing Meditation

Prenatal Yoga

Birth Preparation, Comfort, Self Care, Connection

During pregnancy, your hormones shift, your entire body changes and you experience life in a new way. This may be one of the most important times to connect with yourself and harmonize mind/body communication. Yoga can help you prepare yourself physically, mentally and emotionally for the birth of your child. It is also a great way to connect with your baby.

Birthing Guidance

Education, Training, Preparation

Birthing Guidance is designed to educate and prepare the birthing person and their birth partner for labor and delivery without a doula present. Sometimes, having a birth doula isn't an option. Birthing Guidance includes

two days of training that covers the following topics:

  • Role-playing comfort measures and birthing positions

  • General labor and delivery education 

  • Establishing roles and expectations of the birthing partner
