Comfort Measures

  • BCBR

Comfort Measures is a great resource for couples needing extra practice or learning how to manage labor and birth more comfortably. First time parents, those needing a ‘refresher’ in labor coping skills, or couples wanting to expand their knowledge of comfort measures for labor and birth are welcome.

Please bring 2-3 pillows, a blanket or yoga mat, a flat bed sheet (any size), a birth ball (only if you have one), pen/paper for note taking, snacks and anything else you need to be comfortable.

This one session three-hour class is dedicated to learning and practicing:

  • Relaxation
  • Breathing techniques
  • Positions for effective laboring
  • Use of birth ball, birthing tub, rebozo and other tools
  • Massage, counter-pressure, and acupressure
  • Hands-on comfort measures
  • Managing back pain
  • Visualization, vocalizing, and movement
