Labour & Delivery Prep

This session is broken down into 2 parts:

 The first section will guide you through a natural delivery with no disturbances or interventions in order to help you understand the signs, stages, and physiology of labour and delivery.

We will then go through the 4 P’s of labour: Power (contractions), Passage (pelvis & vagina), Passenger (baby & placenta), Psyche (mind & confidence). 

“All of these must work together in synchronicity to achieve a successful, vaginal birth. Think of them as gears in a machine. If one of the gears is misaligned, then the whole machine malfunctions.”

While discussing the 4 P’s I will explain the most common interventions in L&D including;  breaking your water, oxytocin, baby positions, vaginal tears, pain management options (including epidural), assisted deliveries (forceps & vacuum), and caesarean deliveries, and much more!

Our goal is to reduce anxiety by gaining knowledge and confidence in your body which will prepare you for an empowering experience. 

Postpartum & Newborn Basics

The postpartum period is considered the “4th trimester” for a reason. It is a time of adjustment for your body, mind, and baby.  This session is meant to educate and prepare you so you are better able to enjoy this beautiful yet challenging period.
