This class is taught by a husband and wife team, parents of three young children
themselves, who will share about the methods and techniques that are most effective
and about what those early parenting days are really like.
Dads, you’ll learn that your main job as birth partner is to stay attuned to her needs and ensure that she feels safe, loved, and supported. Our instructor will show you exactly how you can fulfill those duties by covering:
What you can do to prepare for the birth (beyond taking this class, of course!)
What is happening to her body during labor and why you’ll need to work in tandem with her.
How you can physically support and emotionally connect with your partner before, during, and after the birth.
A variety of ways you can help keep her focused and as comfortable as possible.
How YOU play a key role in a safe and healthy birth.
How to help take care of your new baby and bond as a family.
The importance of making sure you are supported as well!
By the end of the class you will have a long list of tips, tools, and techniques you can use during labor. (Really – we give out a cheat sheet!) This list coincides with Gary Chapman’s Five Love Languages – Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Physical Touch, Gifts, and Quality Time. Each of these Love Languages can be applied to the birth experience and we’ll teach you how to use them all to your partner’s benefit.
This class is held every other month. Partners are encouraged to attend this class, but we ask that childcare is arranged for all children so that we can ensure a distraction free learning environment. The cost is $20 per couple and prepayment is required to reserve your seat and materials. An invoice will be sent to you within a week of our receipt of your online registration.
