Birth Ball

Positions & Movement for Labor & Birth

For the pregnant woman, labor and birth are dynamic experiences during which she will benefit greatly from movement, mindfulness, and confidence in the power of her body. Positioning and mobility with the birth ball can help to ease labor pains, open the pelvis, encourage baby's descent, and reduce the duration of labor. Dr. Jasia teaches this movement-based education course to help women understand how to assist their body, their mind, and their baby throughout the miraculous changes they will undergo in labor and birth. Participants will practice positions, movements, and breathwork specific to each stage of labor, understanding how and why to move their bodies, calm their minds, and find their power in birth.
