In this 2 hour fun and informative class, couples will learn and practice various techniques that they can use in pregnancy and in labour.
Expectant women experience well-intentioned touch and will find pain-relief in just a few key moves.
Partners will be taught a variety of "tools" that they can use in labour, and come away with ideas on how to be a valuable 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 the 3rd trimester and labour, however couples at any stage of pregnancy are welcome to attend. You will receive a hand-out with the techqniues taught so that you are able to practice at home and during your birh=th.
