Upright Labor Positions for a Faster and More Efficient Birth

Laboring in bed has been linked to longer labors and labor complications.  This class utilizes upright positions used throughout centuries along with modern techniques from Dancing For Birth™ and Spinning Babies® . 

This class also works to provide additional labor comfort measures with Rebozo techniques and active laboring positions that allow the baby to make the journey out of Mom as easy as possible!  This is a great addition to any childbirth class to focus specifically on physical strength, posture and positions, and physiologic comfort measures in pregnancy, labor, and post-partum.
