Emerge | Birthing Again
May 19 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This 7-hour, two-session series is for parents who have taken any type of childbirth preparation with a previous birth. The first evening is for birthing mothers only. The next day there will be a separate one-hour session for birth partners. The separate sessions will help participants, both birthing mothers and their partners, to gently unwind previous birth stories and prepare for a new and different birth.
Immediately following the partner session birthing mothers will join for the remaining 3-hour refresher course. In the couples’ portion of class birthing mothers and partners will dust off pain-coping skills and create time to focus on THIS birth and THIS baby. While learning ways to integrate the new baby into the existing family, we will pay special attention to helping siblings with the transition.
