Physiological Birth & Innate Postpartum Care
Saskatoon Childbirth Education & Postnatal Preparation Class
Regardless of where or how you’re hoping to give birth, these classes will take you beyond the external noise, advice, stories, and dogma around childbirth & parenting to holistically prepare your mind, body, and heart to be initiated through birth and the early postpartum period.
You will build a pain-coping mindset, identify limiting beliefs, cultivate self-love, and connect with your partner and community. Explore engaging rituals and ceremonies of birth, find your voice, foster resilience, develop psychological flexibility, and gain clarity on your internal and external resources.
Access inner wisdom to prepare for birth as a rite of passage and a nourishing 4th trimester.
When Should You Attend?
In this comprehensive childbirth class, you and your partner will gain emotional and practical skills to allow you to have the best possible birth.
Please attend the workshop anytime between your 20th-40th week of pregnancy.
What To Expect In Class
There is room for your joy and excitement right next to the questions and fears you may have about birth. Birth is complex and emotional, just like our workshops.
If you want to feel ready for birth:
Learn everything about birth you didn’t know you needed to know!
Gain an understanding of the stages of labor and early postpartum from a medical and holistic perspective.
Practice comfort measures, labor positions, and partner touch and support.
Build mindfulness techniques to cope with discomfort and stress.
Understand when interventions can help birth and how to stay grounded if birth looks different than you had hoped.
Use your worry and fear to help guide your self-advocacy.
The information and practice you need - without fear or fluff!
In this method of childbirth preparation, we will center YOU, the birthing family, and guide you to gain just enough medical information along with a deeper level of awareness and connection to yourself, your birth partner/s, and your baby.
This class focuses on birth as a transformative event that can not be planned. We welcome people birthing in all locations, including home or hospital.
Each step of the way, there is time to SLOW DOWN and reflect on exactly what is important to your family! We are excited to have you join us as you explore your wisdom, compassion, and strength while filling the information gaps so that you feel READY to birth and care for your baby.
