Couples will be prepared for the birth that they prefer, whether it is a non-medicated or low intervention birth, a fully medicated birth, or a cesarean birth. Together, we will create a packing list for your birth bag, fully customized to you and your needs. Topics of discussion include: signs and symptoms of labor, comfort measures and coping techniques for contractions, tips on pushing, questions to ask during a hospital tour, medically necessary reasons for induction, avoiding unnecessary interventions, information on cesarean births, anesthesia, possible interventions and why they may be introduced, breastfeeding, breathing and relaxation techniques, physical recovery post-birth, and the fourth trimester.
When: Every Wednesday
*Tanya of Tennessee Family Doulas will be there on the 4th Wednesday of every month.
