Why Choose the Pushing Power Course?
Birthing people are often underprepared for the pushing part of labor, which may contribute to many hours of ineffective pushing, long-term pelvic floor damage and weakness, medical interventions, or even a cesarean birth. This course aims to address this gap in understanding and preparation for optimal pushing.
What You Will Learn
The Pushing Power Course is divided into several sections, each designed to provide you with a holistic understanding of the pushing part of labor:
- Pushing Power – 2nd Stage Labor and Your Pelvic Floor – Learn about the anatomy basics and the essential role of the pelvic floor muscles in labor.
- Prepare Body for Birth – Discover exercises to release the pelvic floor muscles to facilitate the baby’s exit.
- Movements to Prepare for Birth – Learn about the four essential movements and how to make more room for the baby during labor and birth.
- Supplemental Reading – Gain additional insights and resources to support your journey towards a more empowered birth.
The Power of Preparation
Preparation is key when it comes to childbirth. The Pushing Power Course is not just about learning facts; it’s about understanding the process, knowing your options, and feeling empowered to make the choices that are right for you and your baby.
