Couples Acupressure for Labor Support - Tools to Manage Pain Throughout Labor

This 2-hour workshop is designed to give couples tools to prepare for labor, manage contractions, and support the mother through all stages of labor using acupressure points and techniques. We will review the stages of labor, what to expect, and how to best support moms during this extremely special process.

Acupressure is a powerful tool that empowers couples to manage pain and take positive steps towards a better birth. Studies have shown that couples who use acupressure during labor:

  • Have relatively shorter births
  • Report experiencing less pain subjectively than those who did not use acupressure
  • Are more likely to go into labor spontaneously and need fewer interventions overall
  • We are perfectly designed to have babies. It is hard work, and it can take a lot of effort on the mother's part, but you can do this!

    As a hands-on class, it is limited to people who are 37 weeks or later in their pregnancy. Many topics discussed and much of the hands on practice includes points used for initiating labor, strengthening contractions, and reducing pain. Even though we don't expect this class to send you into labor, it is important for moms and babies to be at term for everyone's safety and greatest wellness.

    The cost for this course is per couple. Please include the name of your partner when paying for the course via paypal.
