Topics included in Comfort Skills Part 1 are breathing techniques, various positions to use during labor, pushing positions and using birth & peanut balls. This is a hands-on practice so EACH mom-to-be needs a support person to attend this class with her.

For this class:

  • Bring 3 bedroom size pillows for comfort while practicing various positions for labor

  • Wear comfortable clothing as you will be on the floor for some position

Labor & Birth class is required to attend before taking Comfort Skills Part 1 class.
