Event description

Description

In this 2 hour fun and informative class, Birth Doulas will learn and practice various massage & acupressure techniques that they can use in labour to help their labouring clients.

Participants will be taught a variety of "tools" that they can use in labour, and come away with ideas on how to be a valuable physical support. These tools help to ensure the mamas-to-be feel cared for and are more comfortable in their labour experiences.

The class is taught by a Registered Massage Therapist well-trained in pregnancy massage, orthopedic assessment & treatment, and relaxation techniques. The focus is on labour techniques, but discussion and questions about the 3rd trimester may occur.

You will receive a hand-out with the techniques taught - which you can keep in your doula bags for quick reference.

Doulas will work on each other during the workshop.

What happens if I am called to a birth on the day of the seminar?
As is the nature of birth work, we realize you might be called to a birth on the day of the seminar. Your workshop fee can be redirected to another workshop or future class held at Ripple Effect Wellness, or can be put toward a treatment with any of our practitioners.
