Comfort Measures 1

Hands on Prep for Labor and Birth

Gain Birth Skills with your Partner in our Comfort Measures for Childbirth & Spinning Babies® Duo!

Birthing is an intense experience! Fortunately, we do not have to go through it alone, or unprepared. 

The right mindset, skills, and support makes a huge difference in your sense of calm and preparation. 

 

You will learn and practice what you and your partner need to navigate your birth.

This practical 3-hour workshop includes prop-use, breathing, counter pressure, and relaxation techniques, medication-free pain relief management, massage, imagery, and partner communication skills to prepare you both.

 

During labor the baby needs to pass through the three levels of the pelvis. Learn techniques to help your pelvis and it’s muscles that support or restrict your pelvic levels. Together, you and your birth partner can use these techniques before and during labor to help “make room for baby!”

 

Spinning Babies® reveals how every laboring woman and her baby can find optimal positions for labor, and make birth less painful, and even pleasurable!

Baby’s job in labor is to rotate!

Learn about Spinning Babies® Techniques:
*Daily Essential Activities
*The Three Balances℠ help birth muscles to relax and add comfort now to ease birth later.
*Birth Positions that open the pelvis that let the baby come through more easily.
*Bring your birth partner to learn how to help you in pregnancy for comfort in labor and birth.

Our goal is help families feel as confident and prepared as possible for their birth.

The Womb Room's classes are designed and led by highly trained and experienced Birth Educators with an inclusive and evidence-based curriculum and approach. We aim not just to give you a solution or provide pain relief but instead to teach you the necessary skills and labour comfort measures to ensure your birthing experience is as healthy as it can be as labor progress moves forward.

We want to teach you to thrive during this unique and beautiful experience.

This means being able to identify labor pain, relieve pain, use equipment like a heating pad, birth ball, or other labor aid to your advantage, and essentially make sure the woman's labor is comfortable and complete - give yourself the opportunity to focus on what really matters.

Our Online Childbirth Classes take place on Zoom, and in-person classes are in Baltimore, all in a friendly, fun, and open-minded, supportive community environment of parents going through the same thing together.
