The preparation for your baby’s birth can seem exciting and overwhelming.  I sometimes have students ask me, “How can I figure out what I really need to know??”  or make comments like “I’ll take a birth class, mostly for my partner’s sake.”  Evolution Yoga’s hands-on Childbirth Education Courses are an opportunity for you and your partner to experience and practice together how to navigate the labyrinth of birth physically and emotionally.

Our weekend course includes:

  • The “how” and “why” of using movement in labor
  • Helping baby find the best position for birth in the weeks leading up to labor
  • Anatomy and physiology of birth
  • Stages and phases of labor, including the power of pushing
  • Connection to breath in all stages of labor
  • Massage and relaxation techniques to reduce fear and invite release
  • Support person’s role throughout labor and birth
  • Birth options including unmedicated, medicated, and cesarean birth
  • Common interventions and how to navigate them with presence
  • Postpartum care and connection with partners
  • Tour of The University of Vermont Medical Center labor/delivery and postpartum floors
