For this workshop we'll be learning how to have your support person - a spouse, partner, family member, friend or doula - help you through the process of labor and birth. This includes the weeks leading up to birth and the transition into your fourth trimester. Our tools will include techniques to prime your body for birth, various laboring positions, learning accurate and effective use of acupressure to help ease pain and reduce delays in the progression of labor, and more.
