Childbirth is a natural, normal event in a woman's life, perhaps the most empowering thing a woman will experience. Robin's childbirth classes help to guide a woman and her partner through this amazing event. Robin's eight class series empower a woman to trust her body's natural instinct, her inner strength and her inner wisdom as she learns how to move through the stages of labor and surrender to the process of birth. Dads are taught to use comfort skills and coping skills to help the laboring mother.
Information is provided regarding the process of labor and birth as well as variations and complications. The use of different positions, massage, relaxation techniques, guided visualization and breathing are offered throughout the series. Information regarding natural ways to cope with labor as well as medication options are provided. Breastfeeding is covered as one of the classes. Other topics included are interviewing pediatricians, postpartum preparation and adjustment, birth choices, normal newborn appearances and bonding as a couple and with your newborn.
Robin uses humor, stories, demonstrations, compassion and "Jewish Motherly Wisdom" in her teaching. After the birth of the last baby in the class, Robin opens her home for a Class Reunion to share stories and take pictures. Many of her Childbirth Classes go on to form mommy and me playgroups on their own.
Couples having home birth, birth center birth or hospital births are welcome to attended. Classes are offered at Los Robles Hospital on Sunday evenings. Call or email for dates, times and availabilities.
