between Childbirth Preparation Class and Active Birth Workshop?
Childbirth Preparation Class has 5 sessions and is a couple class. You come to class with your birth partner (any person mom is comfortable with whom she thinks can give her support and whom she wants to share the birth experience with). We meet for 2 hours per session.
Active Birth Workshop, on the other hand, has 7 sessions -5 of which are Childbirth Preparation Class and the other 2 sessions are Prenatal Yoga Class, which is an all women class and is about an hour and 15 minutes. You can check the schedules here.
Why did I come up with Active Birth Workshop? I have 3 reasons:
1. Some moms choose not to attend Prenatal Yoga and sometimes I meet moms whom I think can benefit from Prenatal Yoga. Active Birth Workshop is to encourage them to come and take some time out.
2. Sometimes, mom-to-be get anxious as the due date approaches. Prenatal Yoga might help them revisit the calm side of their being.
3. Some moms have been attending prenatal yoga and I would like to give them a discount when they come in for Childbirth Preparation Class.
This goes to say that, if you enroll in Childbirth Preparation Class and you decide to come in to 2 sessions of Prenatal yoga, you may do so. Just inform us ahead of time that you will be joining the Prenatal Yoga Class.
If you plan/ are doing Prenatal Yoga, and are considering joining Childbirth Preparation Class keep in mind that you have 2 more sessions of Prenatal Yoga once you register for Childbirth Preparation Class.
