Evidence Based Birth® Workshop:
Tri Valley Doula & Lactation
Supporting Women Before, During and After Birth since 2007.
We offer experienced care that helps you have the empowered birth & breastfeeding experience you want.
Serving the Tri Valley, East Bay, South Bay, North Bay and Peninsula communities.
Sacred Belly Wrap: Belly binding is an ancient way of healing after birth. We ty a long strip of cloth around the abdomen during the postpartum recovery period to ensure a strong support to the womb after childbirth. The wrap pulls in the separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti). Often, the wrap prevents back pain. The wrap absolutely decreases postpartum bleeding time by speeding up the process of getting rid of waste blood in a natural way. And, it feels good!
Cost:$100 to have me come to your home wrap your abdomen and apply healing herbs to your tummy.
Did you know that birth plans are rarely followed? In this workshop, you will learn the Six Essential Steps of HOW to get evidence based care during your birth.
What will be covered in the workshop? We will talk all about evidence based care—what it is, what it isn’t, and how to talk with your provider about it! You will also learn how to make sure your birth setting and provider will be supportive of your wishes, and how to educate yourself and gather your support team. Also, you will learn about the legal rights of people giving birth, and this is information every expecting parent absolutely must know, period.
The workshop will be a small, interactive class with plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions. Refreshments will be provided.
This Evidence Based Birth® Workshop does not replace childbirth education classes. Instead, the resources you will gain at this workshop are the missing link for those of you who want evidence based care but are worried about your wishes and decisions not being respected when you actually go into labor.
Moms and their birth partner are invited to attend! Don't wait to register--this class is open to only 6 couples in the East Bay. Note: This event is open to parents only—not to birth or health care professionals.
Cost: $125 for the 3.5 hour class. Please call for class dates & times.
