In this 2 hour fun and informative class, Expectant women and their birthing partners will learn and practice various massage & acupressure techniques that they can use in labour to help their labouring partners.
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 birth bags for quick reference.
