Education Options with COVID-19 Precautions

It's taking some creativity, and I'm at the ready.

OUt of the box Birth support

​With current COVID-19 restriction, your best bet is to be prepared and have support accessible throughout your labor

My private and hospital-based classes have been moved online, and will be live streamed with interactive and engaging facilitation

 

Online classes will feature:

  • Signs of labor

  • Comfort measures for each phase

  • BIRTH! What can we expect?

  • Birth plans and preferences

  • Choices and interventions

  • Hormones of labor

  • Postpartum, the girlfriend's guide to what really to expect after the birth

  • Many resources for all the other stuff you're wondering about!

 

This format is temporary, since I strongly prefer to hold classes in-person for a myriad of reasons!

More classes will be added as needed.

If you have a schedule preference, contact me by email and I'll see how I can accommodate!

Balancing workshop

BREECH WORKSHOP

Take the chance to learn how to use belly mapping and the Spinning Babies techniques to help you connect with your pregnancy in a meaningful and proactive way. 

With the measures in place to limit visits to and stays in the hospital, it's more important than ever to promote optimal positioning for shorter labors and simpler births​.

Head’s up! Breech, transverse, or oblique lie is when the baby's head is not down. This can complicate pregnancy and ultimately affect how, when, and where you birth your baby. With attention, connection, and body work, we may be able to encourage your baby to find a vertex position by making room in the areas of your body that they need in order to turn.

Take this session if you are:

  • More than 20w pregnant

  • Curious about how your baby is positioned

  • Hoping for a simpler labor, to help limit interventions like induction or Cesarean, and/or to delay (or avoid) the use of medical pain management

Take this session if you are:

  • 33w or later, carrying breech or transverse*

  • Hoping to avoid Cesarean birth for this type of position, and want to "do all you can" to work with your baby to change this position to vertex ahead of labor

Sessions are comprised of:

  • Live Zoom session to coach participants on techniques for pregnancy and labor

  • Gail Tully's Parent Education Video streaming/download

  • Materials for ongoing practice

  • ~OPTIONAL~ Accountability sessions for check-in are available, to ensure you're sticking to your goals

Sessions are comprised of:

  • Live Zoom session to coach participants on techniques for pregnancy and labor

  • Individualized schedule for techniques for greatest effectiveness

  • Follow up, with three pathways:

    • Baby went vertex! Learn techniques for labor

    • ECV scheduled. Prepare for this process and its possible outcomes

    • Planned Cesarean. Learn about what to expect for your birth and create a birth plan that reflects your preferences
