GentleBirth Workshops provide expectant people and partners easy to learn brain training techniques including Mindfulness, ... moreCBT and the neuroscience around pain, Sports Psychology, Medical Hypnosis and the physiology of birth, along with tools, information and techniques to prepare for the most positive birth possible.

Most importantly, we will be learning all advanced comfort measures, like birth ball, TENS, acupressure and more in order to have a full toolkit of comfort strategies.

Dress comfortably to Zoom, as we will be trying a lot of these comfort measures. If you have an exercise ball, massage tools, a rolling pin, and a long non-stretchy scarf we will need those for certain sessions.

Our newborn can seem like a tiny, strange creature from another planet. She may not look or act the way we expected, and often seems a random mash-up of confusing wiggles, cries, jerks, ... morestaring, sleeping and suckling episodes. Who is this little person? And what, on earth, are we to do with him?

Join other families as we explore these amazing, sweet and strong (if confounding!) little beings. Learn that instead of being made up of random and impossible to understand behaviors, they are actually highly organized and communicative. As we begin to recognize the journey our newborn has made from inside to out and the ways she engages with the world, we discover how to more confidently and effectively respond to her needs. As we learn to respond to his needs, we discover a calmer, more settled baby, and a life that supports parents’ rest and well being, as well as baby’s.

Most women are given strong messages about the importance of breastfeeding for her baby’s health. Some expect it to be a natural and easy process that just happens. Others have heard ... moreall kinds of horror stories about the difficulties that can occur. Others feel pressured to try, but uncomfortable and uneasy about the idea of it. Not many of us are told that it is a joint effort between us, our body and our baby, and that like any new skill, it can take time and effort to learn and succeed at.

Join us as we explore the wide range of experiences different mothers can have. Learn about the ways we can support the breastfeeding relationship and baby’s health beginning immediately after birth and in the first days and weeks. Explore both benefits and challenges to the newborn and the mother and how and where to reach out for additional help when it’s needed. Class will provide information on: skin-to-skin after birth, the breast-crawl, establishing breastfeeding, understanding the hormones of bonding, milk production and milk release, nursing positions, and breast health. Resources for support with pumping, latch issues, formula feeding and going back to work with be provided.

Does squatting really open the pelvis wider than lying down? How on earth is a baby going to fit out of there? Don’t I have to lie on my back while I’m pushing the baby out? How can ... moreI use movement if I’ve had an epidural? What if I want to labor on hands and knees? Come together with other expecting mothers and birth partners to discover answers to these questions and more. Together we will practice movements, postures and breath practices that support the labor and birth process. Learn why breath and movement help us cope with the sensations of birth, and how movement helps the body adapt to birth and the baby finds his/her best way out. Discover how the birth partner’s physical support and hands-on techniques can help the mother throughout labor. And discover the powerful connection that is built between birth partners as they learn to breathe and move together.

Whether the sensations of birth are called “rushes,” “waves,” “pressure,” or “pain,” few will argue that the sensations are immense and intense – and they must be to move the baby ... moreout of the body. Learning to cope with this level of intensity asks women to find deep power and belief in themselves. Using experiential exercises and group discussions, this workshop explores what it means to work WITH intensity, instead of trying to push it away or change it. Discover how, by bringing your attention to yourself and your breath, you already have the tools needed to work with the powerful sensations of birth. Birth partners will learn how important they are to helping a woman find her endurance and strength through the birth process. This class is recommended to women planning the use of an epidural as well as women planning on birthing naturally. It is medically recommended for most women to labor without pain medication until they are in active labor. These methods will support a woman up until the point she is able to receive pain medications, or, if she so chooses, until she births without them.

Families often don’t realize the choices or rights they have in birth, or how much their choices can impact birth and adjustment to parenthood. In birth, we ride the wave that life ... morehands us—accepting that we cannot control the internal process of our own or our baby’s body, or the social systems we are birthing in. At the same time, there are many ways we can prepare to make choices that impact our births.

In this class we will explore:

the importance of making intentional choices in your practitioner, birth team, and birth location

how to advocate for your family by:

building engaged and positive relationships with your medical team

exploring doula support

learning how to navigate hospital or practice policies that may impact your birth

learning your legal right to consent to or refuse any recommended procedure

using the B.R.A.I.N. acronym to help you understand and decide on recommendations

creating a birth plan that represents what is important to you as a family, and which is more likely to be respected by your practitioner or hospital

Families Taking the 7-week series or individual class will also receive a supplementary video about common medical interventions and procedures. 9-week participants cover this information in class.

As birth approaches, we tend to know much more about pregnancy and birth, than we do about what happens after our babies are born. Birth is a profound process, but it is also merely ... morea doorway into a new world. What happens to mom’s body in the weeks and months after birth? How do our relationships change? How can we support ourselves and our partners/families through these changes? When and who do we call for help? Spend an afternoon with your birth partner or family to engage in discussion and activities that can help you can make your adjustment into parenthood less stressful and more supportive of the new family. Simple but effective tools can help you know better what to expect, and create an effective support network in the 4-8 weeks after birth. Preparation and support can profoundly impact the mother and baby’s physical healing and adjustment, and the entire family’s emotional well-being during the precious and challenging postpartum time.

Learn about the physiological process of childbirth in a manner that empowers you to welcome your baby into the world in the most gentle and loving way. An unmedicated birth enhances ... morenatural oxytocin to both the birthing person and baby allowing for better breastfeeding rates, less complications, faster recovery and better bonding. This class focuses on seeing birth as a normal process, however we support all types of birth and also cover all possible interventions and pain relief options.
Taught by Lamaze-Certified Childbirth Educator and doula Jocelyn Albertson (she/her). This class will be taught virtually via Zoom.
This class is designed around Lamaze's 6 Healthy Birth Practices, which are:
- let labor begin on its own
- walk, move around and change positions throughout labor
- bring a support person/team for continuous support
-avoid interventions that are not medically necessary
-avoid giving birth on your back and follow your body's urge to push
-keep the birthing person and baby together, it's best for them, baby and breastfeeding
I believe that knowledge is power and so many birthing people and their partners find it easier to maneuver through the birth process if they know what to expect and why things happen, whether it be physiological or hospital procedures.
This is a two-day class on July 10th and 17th, 2021 from 10am-1pm via Zoom. This class is for birthing couples planning on delivering in a home or hospital setting. Please dress comfortably and be prepared to practice position changes as well as relaxation/breathing techniques. Cost is $250 for the series.

This is not Childbirth Education. Meaning that I will not go into details about stages of labor or hospital procedures and birth positions or aftercare for newborns unless it is a ... moreplace you are holding fear, and then we will focus on what you personally need. I am an experienced birth worker, so my knowledge and experience with birth will always be present in sessions. However, we will instead be focusing on the Somatic wisdom that lives in our bodies.

We will together work with fears, past trauma (birth or other), grief or whatever is in the way, even if undefined.

We will do group somatic exercises and there will be focused time for everyone to do personal Somatic work while we all hold the space for what is present for you.

Together we will look deep at your specific questions, concerns and fears around pregnancy, birth and postpartum. You will build/add to your personal toolkit to help grow resiliency and capacity for pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

We will listen deeper to what you already know, what you need to remember and what you may be ready to release to make space for this birth. By working deeply with the fear of the unknown, you will remember and learn new settling practices while trying to expand your room for curiosity and perhaps excitement of the unknown.

I will offer my witness, accompaniment, intuition, knowledge and experience to facilitate you in creating the space to discover what your body remembers about integration and wholeness.

I deeply prioritize holding space for past and present trauma and grief. And this group is open to anyone ready to show up.

Group is open to 5 participants. Please email to schedule a short consultation to see if this group is right for you.
