What to Expect in Each Section of the Course
Understanding the Body’s Perfect Design
Women’s bodies are unbelievable. An expecting mother’s body is performing miracles while growing a baby and bringing it into the world. In our introduction, we’ll remove the mystery and tell you exactly what is happening in your body from the first trimester through postpartum recovery.
Implementing the Body & Mind Connection
Now that you know how your body functions, learn how to make those functions work for you. We’ll help you understand what that having “the right mindset” means and give you the strategies to achieve it.
Everyone knows breathing during labor is important, but how you breathe makes a huge difference. Breathing can accelerate labor and make your contractions more effective. Our practice videos will help you master three techniques to use on delivery day.
The Building Blocks
Learn the essential components of a successful unmedicated birth and you’ll be set up for a smooth delivery. We’ll tell you how to choose the perfect care provider and maintain healthy habits. You’ll also understand the “fear, tension, pain” cycle and know how and when to relax.
You’re almost ready to deliver, so let’s talk details. We’ll squash any remaining fears, help you understand what your body is doing in the final weeks of pregnancy, teach you how to advocate for yourself at the hospital, and help you prepare your body for labor.
Physical Support in Labor
Gather your support team and assign them specific rolls. Lean on your partner to do some of the heavy lifting during labor. We’ll teach your partner about labor positions and making you more comfortable during contractions. Lastly, you’ll create a birth preference sheet and learn how to make informed decisions in unexpected circumstances.
Your due date is approaching quickly. You’re uncomfortable and pacing the hallways, anxious to meet your baby. We help you manage those long days and walk you through every stage of labor, including the final pushes that bring your baby into the world.
The 4th Trimester
When your baby is born, the hard work is done, right? Well, most of it! Your body has a lot of recovering to do the weeks following delivery. It’s important to make sure you are resting and communicating your needs. To capture your beautiful birth experience, we will show you how to write your birth story so you can relive that precious moment for decades to come.
