Labor is a very different place then most of us are accustomed. It doesn't follow our social rules, there is a special etiquette that should be followed and there are things that are helpful to expect and know how to move through. This class will explain what you and your partner can expect from labor from the movements, the sounds, the smells, and all the emotions that go along with it as well as give you the tools to cope in labor as a team.
Your partner will learn how to support you with breath coping techniques, comforting touch and anticipating your needs.
Professional Labor Doula & Midwife Assistant
About the instructor
Bea received her initial doula training & certification through CAPPA in 2012. She continued her education with some of our nation’s most noteworthy birth workers. She trained in Rebozo skills with Gina Kirby, she expanded her birth skills with Birthing From Within’s Virginia Bobro, and became a midwife assistant with The Farm midwives.
Bea has attended over 150 births as a doula and midwife assistant. She has attended unmedicated, medicated and cesarean births in the hospital and regularly attends homebirths.
As a prenatal yoga teacher and doula, Bea is highly skilled in helping achieve optimal fetal positioning prior to and during labor.
Bea’s birth philosophy is that there is not one “perfect” way to birth, rather each woman must meet birth in her own way at that moment.
