BIRTH PREPARATION

SUPPORT

This prenatal support package combines my experience working as a birth doula helping expecting parents prepare for birth with the brilliant information from the Spinning Babies® Parent Class. A very practical approach to give you and your partner plenty of tools to step into labour feeling confident, informed and equipped. 

The Birth Preparation Support includes;

  • 2 Sessions (approximately 2 hours each)

  • Spinning Babies® Parent Class Online Guided Material 

  • Birth Preferences & Options Overview

  • Spinning Babies® Partner Techniques Practice

  • Comfort Measures & Labour Support Practice

  • Doula Tips for Partners

  • Birth Mindset Exercise

  • Labour Support Handouts

  • Email Support & Follow-Up

Available In-Person or Online.

See details below for more information.

ONLINE BIRTH PREPARATION SUPPORT

This online option is great for anyone outside of central Calgary or unable to meet up in person. 

 

INCLUDES:

  • Online Guided Spinning Babies® Parent Class Material

    • Parent Class Video Download

    • Daily Essentials Video Download

    • Labour Support Handouts

    • Email Support & Follow Up

 

HOW IT WORKS:

  • First, I will email you two gift-cards that you will use to access the two Spinning Babies video downloads; one will be for the Parent Class, and the other for the Daily Essentials.

  • You will also receive an email from Spinning Babies directly which will allow you to create a login and access your class handouts.

  • You and your partner will both watch the Parent Class video at your own pace. There is a lot of information in there, so take your time with it. And feel free to watch it more than once if you need.

  • Once you will have watched the Parent Class, well be ready to schedule our first virtual session together via Zoom. During this session, we will go over the Spinning Babies partner techniques together to make sure you feel comfortable with them. I will share the updates that have been made to the techniques since the video was made. You will be using these techniques regularly throughout the rest of your pregnancy to create more comfort and prepare your body well for birth. We will also cover birth options and interventions to get the conversation going around your preferences and help you make informed decisions.

  • After this first session, you will continue practicing the partner techniques to help prepare for birth and use the handouts to guide you. I will be available for any questions or concerns you might have. 

  • When we get closer to your estimated due date, we can schedule our second session. This one will focus on practical tools for labour and birth, including some hands-on techniques for the birth partner and positions and techniques to try if labour doesn't go as planned. We will finish our session with a great birth mindset exercise to help you find a supportive focus and integrate the labour coping tools we will have explored together. 

  • I will remain available via email for any questions or concerns you might have.
