GentleBirth Childbirth Education $350

GentleBirth knows that a positive birth can look many different ways and that there is never a one-size-fits-all route. This workshop combines brain science, birth science and technology to empower your positive birth through preparation. Our workshop encourages people to be curious about the process by helping to explore common birth paths, our perception of pain, how to mentally and emotionally navigate options, the differences between interventions and solutions, comfort measures, individual preferences and how to let those be known. You will find yourself able to both navigate and handle whatever path your birth takes. GentleBirth will guide you to become more resilient and present for a positive birth experience and give you coping strategies that you will continue to use in daily life and throughout your parenting journey.
