This series is childbirth prep class for mom and her birth partner to deepen their connection in preparation for childbirth and parenting. 

The series is more than yoga poses! We talk about what it takes to create a supportive and comfortable birth game plan for your family. Your birth partner will be empowered to take an active role in the birth experience and mama will learn how to ask for what she needs. You will learn communication skills, movement and relaxation techniques, and we will let go of fear that blocks and sometimes stops the progression of labor and birth.
