Comfort Measures & Partner Support/Second-Timers/Refresher

Our Comfort Measures & Partner Support/Second-Time Mom Class is designed for women and their support people to become not only familiar with, but comfortable utilizing the techniques proven to help in each phase of labor.  You’ll learn current research about the TOP TEN techniques that have been proven effective in birth.

It is most helpful for those who desire a natural non-medicated “Mother-Friendly” birth or for those who just want to take a refresher course for baby number two!   For first-time mothers, it is encouraged that this class is taken after a regular group class.  My students say that learning my techniques not only helped in labor, but it “helped them throughout the last few months of pregnancy!” These comfort measures are awesome, especially for those desiring a natural childbirth!

Customer Testimonial:

“I took the Comfort Measures class just weeks before the birth of my son and found all the tips and advice Lisa provided to be so very helpful. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to deliver naturally because of complications, and Lisa helped walk me through a variety of scenarios I might encounter.

All went well at the time of birth, and I was able to make it through labor and delivery naturally, but I recognize that this would not have been possible without the help and advice Lisa provided. She was very kind and personable, and I highly recommend her!”
