Breathing For Birth says
Breathwork for birth was once the hallmark of Lamaze. Today, we Lamaze educators teach many pain coping skills in addition to evidence-based information, informed decision making skills and the normal progress of labor and birth. Yet, the breath remains an important pain management skill for labor as well as a general life skill.

As a yoga instructor and a Lamaze educator, Deena has broad experience and knowledge base from which to draw upon with regards to breathing and relaxation.

This workshop for couples focuses solely on the breathing techniques for labor and birth. We’ll cover the anatomy and physiology of breath and how changes in breathing affects your body and your emotional state. Then we’ll move into practice of a number of techniques, such that you may choose to use the techniques that work best for you.

We’ll also teach your partner ways that he or she can support you and help you maintain or modify your breathing during labor.

This workshop is designed to be complimentary to any other childbirth class you take and does not replace a full childbirth class series.

Please wear comfortable clothing, as we will be on our yoga mats for practice. Bring a water bottle and something with which to take notes.
