This weekend intensive highlights the most practical and pertinent topics of the full 7 week series.When a birthing person goes into labor, their body takes center stage to safely birth their baby, or at least this is what it tries to do.

You will learn:
– about birth as a multidimensional process
– facts and facets of the birth process
– movements and positions for a comfortable and efficient labor
– the nuts and bolts of mindful labor support
– how to utilize breath and sound
– how to support the birthing mother physically and emotionally
– how to recognize and work with fear in labor
– how the mind works, and how to work with the mind
– how to work wisely with your body
-how perception and cultural conditioning shape your birth experience
– about your personal resources and core needs in birth
– what to do when labor doesn’t go the way you want
– relaxation practices for pregnancy and postpartum

– how to steer clear of assumptions
…and more!
