CoreBirthing: Connect to yourself, your strengths, and your partner as you prepare for labor.
Birth is a time of intense vulnerability and strength. To get through it, a strong support system is key! By practicing concrete tools for coping with labor, including lots of ways partners can help, students will come away from the workshop feeling more confident and more excited about what’s to come.
This workshop is for pregnant women (in the 2nd or 3rd trimester) and their partners who are ready to go deeper into the coping part of labor prep. Be prepared to move around, have fun and dig deep.
Caitlin FitzGordon has been teaching childbirth classes since 2008. She came to this work through her own experience with birth and mothering and credits yoga with helping her tremendously during the births and parenting of her two kids. She brings a sense of calm, encouragement and acceptance to her childbirth classes. She also provides support to new families as a postpartum doula and a life coach for women—with a particular emphasis on supporting women in committing to caring for themselves.
