Childbirth Education Basics

Childbirth Education Basics

 

with Sasha Slocombe, Team Member from Boober

This efficient childbirth preparation class is an interactive, intimate in-person group class on the UWS in Manhattan at Prenatal Yoga Center. Our childbirth preparation classes are well rounded and accessible and you’ll have the opportunity to meet other expectant parents. All types of families and individuals are welcome.

 

Class is a blend of lecture, video, demonstration and will include, but not be limited to:

  • Physiology of Labor and Birth
  • Signs, Stages and Emotional Signposts of Labor
  • Introduction to non-pharmacological Pain Management Techniques and pain medication options
  • Understanding Birth Options
  • Types of Labor Support–doula care, family, etc.
  • Understanding Medical Support (Interventions)
  • Cesarean Birth and Prevention
  • First Moments after Birth
  • Postpartum Care and Recovery 
  • Family Centered Care
  • How COVID-19 may impact your experience

 

There is no one right way to labor. We stand by the philosophy that birth is a normal process and hope to inspire confidence in everyone we teach by sharing what possible things to expect, helping you develop the skills to move through your labor and leaving you feeling prepared to work through whatever your journey turns out to be. It is our goal to educate you about the full spectrum of options for birth, and then to support you unconditionally.

 

Taught by experts who have assisted 20,000+ expectant parents through a wide range of birth choices and experiences.

 

In this 3-hour class there will not be time to practice the pain-coping techniques you will learn about. You will receive a 1 hour pain coping class video to go deeper.

About the Instructor:

Sasha Slocombe has been involved in supporting families as they transition into parenthood for more than 20 years. She was first a prenatal and parent/baby yoga instructor. After the birth of her second daughter in 2004 she became a postpartum and labor support doula and was honored to be present for more than 250 babies.

 

Her experiences as a labor support doula inspired her to become a childbirth educator. Sasha seeks to empower each family to ask the questions and create the support that is true to them.

Please Note: Many of our instructors are doulas. PYC & Boober reserve the right to provide a substitute teacher should the need arise. 

This class is brought to you in partnership with Boober:
