Birth Empowerment

“The knowledge about how to give birth is born within every woman: women do not need to be taught how to give birth but rather to have more trust and faith in their own body knowledge.”  –BirthWorks

My classes offer information about:

    • Determining which birth setting is best for you
    • Choosing your caregiver
    • Understanding and working with the physical and emotional changes of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum
    • Exercise for a healthy pregnancy
    • Birth plans
    • The birth process
    • Using relaxation and comfort techniques during labor
    • Positions to make labor more comfortable
    • Medical interventions
    • Remaining empowered even when interventions are required
    • Community resources for further support with breastfeeding, postpartum, and newborn care
About six months into my pregnancy, my husband suggested we find a doula. I was intrigued but had no idea how to go about finding one, much less the right one. This person would need to click with both my husband and me & give us a sense of security and confidence. Jordyn was all those things for us and more. Meeting with Jordyn made me feel prepared and calm. I was really able to relax the last months before I gave birth.  She really guided and supported me through a very long, exhausting labor. Jordyn came to our house and labored with us for more than 10 hours, then continued with us at the hospital for another 7 hours until I gave birth to our dearest 7lb 11oz little girl. We are so thankful to have had Jordyn throughout our experience and continue to have her as a lifelong family friend.
