Enjoyed day 2 of my Childbirth Education class. I think Erika Davis (from @_wholebodypregnancy_ ) is the bees knees 😝 I’m learning so much from this class! I love her approach, style and energy.
We learned more about each stage of labor:
Active labor & pushing
Birthing the placenta
We also went over the process of caesarean birth, as well ✨
What’s happen in the birthing person’s body
How they can cope
How support folks can support them.
I love being reminded that birth isn’t linear. That the stages of labor are just guidelines, rather than hard points to follow to the t. I loved being reminded that I can encourage birth folx that birthing is in their own time, according to their own body’s needs/wants.
Next week—more on medicated birth & postpartum. I’m geeked!
I love this! 💚
