Service Description

Embody Pregnancy, Birth & Parenting: An 8 Week Prenatal Series provides evidence-based information on the topics needed to know about pregnancy, birth, and postpartum by a Perinatal Nurse and Childbirth Educator. Ideal start is 26-29 weeks gestation. Each booking is for 2 people - pregnant woman and support partner/person. At Embrace Health Education, we use an embodied learning approach. What is embodied learning? Learning that involves the mind and body, not just intellectual lectures. This approach supports engagement, various learning styles, and your mind and body growth that needs preparation and practice for birth and parenting. How do I use this approach in prenatal classes? One way I do this is in each session, I include a yoga class (yes, I am a prenatal yoga teacher) that is designed to embody the learning of that particular class. For instance, in class 4, where you learn about the pushing stage, we will move into poses that support descent and get your pelvic outlet in a good position for birth. Although my classes may sound offbeat, I am very 'science' when it comes to the mind and body! I include health and wellness education and activities into topics and discussions. Such activities will embody your learning by going deeper into your vision of how you want to be as a parent and how you want to evolve in your parenting relationship. I want you to embrace your new role as a parent with confidence and resilience! If you want to learn AND grow into the role of parent, register for the Embody Pregnancy, Birth & Parenting Series, and you will be one step closer to being that parent you desire.
