4 Week Childbirth Education Series Taught by CERTIFIED Childbirth Educator, Cali Judson
There are hundreds of choices to make in your birth and postpartum journey and a childbirth education class will educate you and your partner on all available options, help determine the best decision for you and assist you in presenting your decisions to your care provider in an organized way. As a Childbirth Educator, I am excited to offer this service to expecting families in both a private class and group class format covering the topics in the graphic to the left.
Join the Doulas of SCV on Sunday, January 21st from 10a-1pm for the Peanut Ball for Birth Pros Training. Perfect for Doulas, L&D Nurses, Midwives, OBs, Childbirth Educators, and anyone working with pregnant/birthing couples.
This hands-on workshop presents the benefits of using a peanut ball during labor. With a focus on technique and positioning, you’ll get hands on instruction and practical guidance.
During this workshop, the student will: • be presented with the evidence based data supporting the benefits of using the peanut ball, • learn how to properly measure and choose the correct size ball, • learn the importance in the quality of production and materials used in making peanut balls when considering types for purchase, • be instructed how to properly inflate, cover for use, clean, and store peanut balls, • become thoroughly familiar with and be able to demonstrate proper positioning for medicated and un-medicated women, and • learn how the peanut ball helps reduce side effects of epidurals.
