Moreka Jolar
Class: Starts February 27th, 7:30-9pm, weekly for 6 weeks in my cozy living room.

The emphasis of this six-week series of classes is on gentle, natural pregnancy and birth (home or hospital) and every woman's innate ability to have the most empowered birthing experience possible.
Class time is relaxed and informal, fun and confidence-building. The environment is supportive and non-judgmental. There is a healthy blend of guided class time, group discussion and experiential practice. Groups are no larger than 12 to allow for a more intimate and personal experience. 
Some of the information that we will cover:
Pregnancy: what to expect, health and wellness, physical and emotional transitions, practical and emotional aspects of preparing for your birth, creating your dream birth.
Birth: stages of the birth process, labour support, pain-coping (pharmaceutical and alternatives) and relaxation practices, addressing your fears, creating a birth plan, building a positive birth team, including partners and other family members, water birth, when to call your birth attendant or go to the hospital, the unexpected.
Postpartum: first hours after birth, bonding and breastfeeding, baby care, making big decisions (shots, drops and bloodwork) postpartum health, family adjustments, ways to receive support from your community.
Cost: $125 per couple (birthing woman and her birth partner)
