Workshops and Events

Couples Birth Preparation Workshop

This workshop is an opportunity for the couple (or the pregnant woman with some other member of her birth team) to focus on and prepare for the approaching birth. This practical workshop will address the questions such as: "Okay, the contractions are starting—now what do I do?", "What do I do with my body?", "What do I do with my mind?" Together the couple will practice many different positions that can be used during the contractions, in between the contractions, and for the delivery of the baby. The partners learn many specific tips on what they can do throughout the birth process, helping themselves to be as prepared and empowered as possible.

The cost for workshops is $80 per couple. We recommend attending the workshop anytime in your third trimester. Please arrive in the studio 10 minutes early, to allow time to get set up. The next dates offered are:
