Childbirth Education + Self Care Weekend (Day 1)

FACILITATED BY: Anna Cheechov of The Living Womb
EXCHANGE: $250 - $450 Sliding Scale

This weekend workshop of Childbirth Education + Self Care aims to expand your mind and relax your body. Saturday, we'll gather for a 4-hour childbirth education class led by Anna Cheechov (doula/mentor/mama) that will help you to wrap your minds around the birth experience from beginning to end, and all the possible ways it could go down for you. We will explore all things labor into the immediate postpartum period after baby is born! 

Topics include: 
Your hopes and wishes for your birth
Hormones present in labor
The anatomy of birth
Your placenta(s)
Stages of labor and ways to cope with each stage
Natural and medical interventions
Navigating your birth place
Post-birth procedures for mom and baby (or babies!)
Postpartum expectations 

On Sunday, we'll explore comfort measures with Sharliamar Jackson (doula & yogi) that you can practice with a partner while still pregnant to help you get a little more comfy as your baby grows and body expands. These same techniques can also be super helpful in labor. After this 1-hour session, we'll split up for some much deserved body/mind treatments. You and your +1 will both have the option of getting a massage, reiki or acupuncture with some of MINKAs finest practitioners. Signs ups for this will take place after registration.

RSVP, here.

What Is Sliding Scale?
We offer all of our community offerings and some private sessions by Sliding Scale.

We believe everyone is entitled to heal their wounds so they can thrive; we also believe that the wellness and healing practitioners deserve to make a living wage.  In order to make this possible, we ask you to pay as much as you can, so those who might not be able to pay as much can still receive their healing session - this is the idea behind 'paying it forward'.  We are all in this together, and we choose to do our best to take care of one another.  Thank you in advance!
