Pushing Power

Childbirth preparation
Giving birth can be one of the most significant events of any woman’s life, and it may also bring up a lot of anxiety and fear, especially around pushing and the possibility of tearing.

In this unique class we will learn how to connect the breath with the pelvic floor. We will find the landmarks of the bony pelvis in ourselves and determine how the pelvis and baby interact during birth and how to make more room in the pelvis for baby. We will understand the essential role of the pelvic floor muscles and how they can help the baby rotate and get into optimal position for birth. We will discover what “2nd stage” of labor is and what happens during pushing and explore strategies to help it be more easeful and functional.

We will review positions and breathing for effective pushing and how best to prepare beforehand. We will learn some exercises to relax and release the pelvic floor muscles in order to let go and let the baby out

Wear comfortable clothing as we will move!

How to connect the breath with the pelvic floor.
How to do a proper kegel.

About the Instructor:

Chantal Traub, CD, CCCE, LCCE is an active Doula, has been assisting expecting families in the New York Metro area since 2003.

She developed her unique classes to help inform and prepare for effective pushing and optimal recovery. Whether a natural physiological birth or an epidural birth is planned; her Pushing Power class will leave you feeling confident and prepared.
