This week at AustinBorn's Group Prenatal Gathering: Relieving Pregnancy Discomforts
Pregnancy is different for every woman, but just about every expecting mom experiences physical discomfort. Ranging from minor nuisance to raging pain, this week we're talking about the less joyful side of pregnancy. Bring what's bugging you, and we'll all share tips on how to feel better. Joining us this week: Amy Kreydin of The Barefoot Dragonfly, the only Reflexology-Aromatherapy center in Austin. Amy is the only practitioner in the area that is Board Certified in Reflexology and Certified in Clinical Aromatherapy. Plus she is just a really nice person, and she'll be offering a discount for her services for moms who attend!
Group prenatal gatherings are held the first Saturday morning (10:30-12) and third Thursday evening (7-8:30) of each month. We’ll take time to check in with each family to catch up on what's been going on in life/pregnancy. Light refreshments are provided. We like our families to lead discussion though we’ll be sure to cover important topics such as:
- Relieving pregnancy discomforts
- Labor interventions & alternatives
- Getting sleep, before & after baby
- Labor Comfort Measures
- Newborn Procedures/Choices
- Optimal fetal positioning & pushing
- Breastfeeding in the first 24 hours
- Getting organized for baby
- Caring for your postpartum self
- Preparing your relationship for a new normal
These gatherings are made up of our current birth doula clients (for details, follow the link below) as well as any guests from the open house event held just prior to the meeting. This is a chance for our clients to meet and learn from one another, as well as to get to know each of the AustinBorn birth doulas better.
