Mindfulness is described as maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and surrounding environment in a non-judgemental manner. How might you find that practice helpful in labor?
In this class we will explore different mindfulness techniques that feel approachable to your individual learning style and level of comfort:
- As the birthing person, you will explore how to implement the Confidence > Relaxation > Pleasure Cycle in order to replace the Fear > Tension > Pain Cycle.
- As the support person you will explore how to implement the same techniques-- providing calm for yourself and your partner.
- Learn how to quench the "Fight/Flight reflexes" with breathing, grounding techniques, visualization, phsyical touch, acupressure, aromatherapy and guided meditation.
- Learn how to create a Safe Space-- that can be acessed in any circumstance to provide a stabilizing support.
This class includes a mix of lecture, discussion, media, movement and relaxation techniques. It is ideal for anyone who is either birthing or supporting the labor of a loved one. Families who tend to experience anxiety or depression have found this class particularly helpful.
Cost: $45 for community families AND $35 for Brave Birth families.
