Sharon’s class is unique because it is experiential, meaning hands-on learning. She offers a yoga-based approach to holistic childbirth preparation for pregnant people and their birth partners. Topics covered include practical techniques for labor, birth and beyond including movement, labor positions, sounding and breathing, communication, relaxation, and partner touch techniques.
Sharon writes, “Absolutely no experience with yoga or meditation is required or assumed and these techniques are helpful regardless of the type of birth you are planning to have. Even if you are planning a scheduled cesarean birth, learning how to communicate with your partner and medical professionals, breathe and connect with your baby during birth, and care for yourself during and after your birth is invaluable.”
Communication skills that involve compassion, authentic relating, and deep listening are truly invaluable. Heightened states of sensory experience during pregnancy can cause sensitivity to stressful communication styles including disagreements and arguments. Engaging with your birth partner through Sharon’s Dynamic Childbirth class will give you a platform for acquiring communication skills that can be applied during stressful experiences.
