Workshops & Classes
How can I make my hospital room more like a magical labor land, and less like a hospital room? Can you help me create a concise birth plan that my care provider or labor and delivery nurse will read and enjoy? Why is my baby making this face at me? And why won’t she stop crying? What are some alternative positions for pushing? How can I best support my partner during labor, when I’m a little bit scared myself? And what the heck is a double hip squeeze? We know you’ve got questions, and we’d love to give you answers. We offer a variety of workshops, classes and events for you, your partner and family. Classes are held monthly, and we keep class sizes small to give you more attention! They fill fast, so contact us today to register!
Comfort In Labor Workshop
Our most popular class! Hands on, physical preparation for labor and birth. This 2.5 hour workshop is a fantastic addition to your childbirth education course, or as a refresher, or just a stand-alone class if you want to skip the other stuff and just practice comfort techniques. We demonstrate and practice different positions for labor and birth, breathing and vocalization techniques, therapeutic touch, visualization and relaxation and other comfort measures to use during your birth. Learn how to set a peaceful environment, ways to use a birth or exercise ball, and much more. Partners, learn how to be super supportive in labor! We get rave reviews from this class, don’t miss out! You also get a take home packet with info, to help you remember what we covered.
$35 for two people
Class is held at Burke Street Chiropractic, 922 Burke Street Winston-Salem, North Carolina 27101
Upcoming Dates: Tuesday, June 11th, 6:30-8:30 pm. To register, please click here
Childbirth With A Twist: Weekend condensed course
Think childbirth education is boring and useless? Think again!
