Labour of Love: Support and Coping Skills Class

Labour of Love: Support and Coping Skills Class

When it comes to birth, the one thing that is for certain is that the baby has got to come out. Doulas are experts in comfort measures and techniques for coping with labour. But hiring a doula isn’t for every person, for a variety of reasons. As doulas, we want to empower and support every birthing person and so we developed this class to teach you and your partner some tried and true techniques to manage your own labours!

Centered on your “labour bag,” we help you create a bag of helpful items, reminders, and handouts that you can take with you to your choice of birthplace in order to help provide you with comfort and support during your own birth. These are skills that can be used for all types of births - back labour, induction, VBAC, natural birth, epidural, or with or without pain medications. No one can predict how your labor is going to go.. Fast and intense? Slow and drawn out? Textbook or unusual? With this Labor of Love class be prepared to learn in detail, some of the tried and true techniques to help manage and cope with the roller coaster ride of labour!


Whether you are first time parents and don’t know what to expect, or on your sixth baby and looking for a refresher; whether you’re hoping for a different experience than last time, or whether you are planning for a home birth or a hospital birth - this fun, relaxing, interactive class is for you.

Labour of Love: Support and Coping Skills will have you walking away with a tangible bag of items to use during birth, and feeling knowledgeable and empowered to birth with confidence, no matter what your birth looks like!

Cost of Class: $150 +taxes per birthing couple or birthing person & 1 support person
