Description

Savvy Birth Workshop:
Everything you need to know as soon as you pee on a stick!
-- an Evidence Based Birth(R) event --

Are you excited to be pregnant, but completely overwhelmed by the number of decisions that need to be made about giving birth? Are you anxious about the unknowns of labor and confused by the horror stories you hear from family and friends? You are not alone!

Women tell us all the time that they’d rather plan a nursery than face decision-making about their birth! At the Savvy Birth Workshop, we provide you and your partner with actual facts to use when discussing critical pregnancy and birth decisions, so that you can look forward to one of the most important days of your life—the day you meet your baby—with a sense of empowerment and excitement!

What will we cover in the Savvy Birth Workshop?

Women have told us over and over again that they have so many fears about the unknowns of childbirth — What if I have a Cesarean? What if I feel pressured into something I don’t want? What if I make the wrong decision? What if I have a bad first experience, or a repeat of a previous traumatizing experience? It’s so easy to shut down and feel paralyzed by these fears—and avoid preparing for childbirth.

But what if you and your partner could plan for your birth while feeling excited, informed, empowered, and confident in your ability to be a key member of your own health care team? In your Savvy Birth Workshop, we will explore these questions:
● What does research support as the safest way to give birth?
● What is the inside scoop on what goes on in the hospitals in our area?
● How does midwifery care differ from OB care?
● What questions can you ask your provider (OB or midwife) to make sure they’re on board with your birth plan?
● What is it like to give birth with a truly supportive team made up your partner, doula, and nurse?
● If your doctor or your hospital tells you you’re “not allowed” to do something during labor, who has the legal authority: you or the hospital?

Note:
This class is geared toward parents in their first or early second trimester, although anyone can benefit! It is not intended to replace a childbirth education course.

Cost:
$39/couple.
Early Bird: $29/couple until 5/21/17
