I am so excited to bring you BirthFocus’ 2 Day Weekend Intensive Childbirth Preparation course!
June 8th & 9th
2:30-6:30pm each day
$225 per couple or team
Land Yoga, 2116 Frederick Douglass Blvd, Harlem
Who this is for: the busy couple that wanted to take a course, but due to travel, work schedules, switching providers, moving, etc., couldn’t fit it into their schedules. Perhaps your new provider or the doula you just hired has encouraged you to take a course and you’d rather be in a classroom environment vs hiring a private teacher? This course is designed expressly for couples 34 weeks along or more who have questions.
What we will cover: The first day covers childbirth as an event your body was made for. We will visit labor stages, relaxation (including breath), how the body works, and practice positions. **Currently being presented by Jenn Kratzer, CNM and mother herself!** Our second class prepares you for options in childbirth, including anesthesia and augmentation in labor, the curveballs of labor (i.e. preparing for the unexpected) including cesarean, informed consent and informed refusal (i.e. advocating for your best outcome) and finally coming together as a team. **By Gillian Foreman**
What’s included / not included: Aside from the course topics listed above, there are Postpartum care worksheets and newborn care procedures to discuss with your birth team included for you to use afterwards. Labor rehearsals and relaxation techniques as homework moving forward until your expected day comes. There’s a full student binder, and as a thank you, a book we think you’ll love! Breastfeeding, baby care and Babywearing are NOT included.
Want more? If you have the time I strongly encourage you to take a full childbirth education course. Combo courses can also be offered by taking two concurrent sessions at the same time or contact me for other independent childbirth educators/course offerings.
But if you don’t, this is for you. I’d rather you get the information than EVER think its too late!
Please email me with questions or to sign up. $50 deposits are required to hold your space in the course, there is limited enrollment.
*As part of this introductory (discounted) fee I will be following up with an extensive survey and feedback form as we shape these 8 hrs to include the most that they can! Responses can be anonymous.
I look forward to meeting you! Here’s to your best Birth-day!
