Boston Births Intensive
Meets Sat. Nov. 9th and 16th from 10am-3pm.
The Boston Births Intensive promotes natural, complementary and alternative methods for pain relief during labor. Whether you’re planning a hospital, birth center, home, physician assisted, or midwife-led birth, you and your birth partner will be guided through only the most useful and effective non-pharmacological comfort measures. We believe birth outcomes improve significantly when mothers replace fear with confidence, and when families are given the right information and tools to navigate pregnancy and childbirth.
Our ten-hour antenatal Intensive is simple, practical, and down-to-earth, and provides all the benefits of alternative childbirth programs such as hypnobirthing and hypnobabies, but is easier on your schedule. The cost is $369 per couple (mom plus her birth partner), and families receive a Boston Births Toolkit and access to ongoing email and phone support. The curriculum includes but is not limited to:
-Physiology of Labor and Delivery
-How Fear Affects Pain
-Physiological and Emotional Stages of Pregnancy, Labor, and Birth
-Optimizing the Birth Environment
-Natural Pain Comfort Techniques (e.g., breathing, visualization, hydrotherapy, positioning, guided relaxation, meditation, etc.)
-The Role of Birth Partners
-How to Avoid Unnecessary Interventions
-Special Circumstances: What Are They and How to Recognize Them
-What to Expect Postpartum
