Birth Prep Crash Course

Pregnant Woman and Partner

**Starting Summer 2022**

You've read the books, taken the classes and made your birth plan. But what might the birth actually be like and what should you actually do when your labor begins?

This three-hour crash course provided in your home is a great option for families looking to further their knowledge of what to do during labor for a more positive experience regardless of whether you plan on using medication or not. It is not meant to replace a formal childbirth education course. It will equip you with information and opportunities for hand-on practice on subjects including:

•    What to expect in each stage of labor

•    How to help progress your labor without medication

•    What partners can do to help the birthing person and themselves

•    When to go to the hospital (if birthing in hospital)

•    Comfort measure techniques

•    Common Interventions and how to approach decision making

•    Labor and Birth positions

•    What to expect immediately postpartum

•    The opportunity to ask any other questions you might have about pregnancy and birth

•    A free copy of Pregnancy, Childbirth and the Newborn and The Birth Partner

TENS Unit Rental

IMG-6368.JPG

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) units are a fantastic, non-drug option for pain relief during labor. TENS units have been wildly popular in the UK, Australia and other European countries and have helped countless people achieve an unmedicated birth.

 

They work by sending mild electrical pulses from where you apply the electrodes (pads), through your skin, to your brain. These electrical pulses act to distract your brain from the discomfort of your labor by giving your body something else to sense. For more information on how TENS units work, check out this post from Evidence Based Birth.

​If you are interested in using a TENS unit for labor, you must inform your care provider and discuss any conditions you have that would be affected by its use.  You may not use a TENS unit if you have a cardiac pacemaker, have been diagnosed with heart disease or epilepsy, or if you have injured/inflamed skin, a rash or an eczema/psoriasis flare up where the electrodes would be applied.

 

Due to the nature of this device, electrodes must be removed and the unit must be turned off prior to getting in or around water. Lastly, you must be 37 weeks or greater to use TENS unit unless your provider states otherwise.

Your rental will be available starting at 38 weeks and will include: 1 Elle TENS unit, 1 unopened package containing 4 electrodes, 3 lead wires (1 spare), 2 AA batteries inside the unit and 2 spare AA batteries, 1 neck cord, 1 instruction manual, 1 quick-start guide, A Woman’s Guide to Drug-Free Pain Relief (booklet), and 1 carrying pouch.

Included in all Birth Packages!

For non-clients: $60, plus $50 deposit which will be refunded upon the successful return of the unit.

Option for roundtrip delivery via USPS for an additional cost.

Postpartum Support

I am only offering this service as part of my birth packages at this time.

Having a baby is a huge deal! 

Not only is there a new little person in the house, but the birthing person needs lots of TLC as well. How are the big siblings doing?

Let me help your family make this transition as enjoyable as possible.

 

I can be an extra set of hands to pick up groceries, tidy up, make a meal, play with big brother or sister, or hold the baby so you can rest.

 

Maybe you need to talk through the birth again, or just someone to stay with you a while. 

I can do that.
