About the Event
If you're looking for a bite-sized, straight-forward workshop that will give you specific tools to manage contractions during birth and offers plenty of hands-on, specific techniques for your partner to support you -- join us for this movement workshop! You'll meet some other expecting parents in Madrid and get some practical tools and info for the day of giving birth.
This workshop is born from a desire for birthing people and their partners to have as many tools as possible to confront the discomforts of labor. We will look at and practice some movements and positions the birthing person can assume, massage the partner can offer, and even some movement the partner can do if the birthing person has an epidural. Epidurals do not equal the end of movement in birth and keeping the pelvis in motion and opening can assist baby's descent into the birth canal.
We'll also do some vocalization exercise while practicing the movements and massage which can help relax the body. Many courses to prepare for birth focus on certain breathing techniques, but this workshop will speak a bit about the validity of making noise while giving birth and ways it can be used to your advantage. In addition to exploring the importance of vocalizing we will do some deep breathing.
*This is an indoor event with a maximum of 5 couples (10 attendees). We will wear masks the entire workshop. Bring water and wear comfy clothes that you feel comfortable bending and moving in!
