Vancouver Natural Birth Seminar
This class presents a fresh unique perspective, providing expectant couples with insight into physiologic normal birth.
This 5 hour class (for home or hospital birth setting) focuses on exploring what it means to birth naturally (vaginal birth, drug and intervention free). Participants will gain understanding of what normal is in order to optimize the elements needed for a safe, healthy, natural, more comfortable and satisfying experience. They will engage in group activities, brainstorming, and examinations into their beliefs about birth.
Topics covered include:
- What is normal physiologic birth and what are the benefits.
- The science of birthing hormones.
- Reframing pain, addressing fears.
- How to optimize natural birth.
- Exploration into the medicalization of birth.
- Current evidence based research.
- Defining your own vision of birth.
