This coming Saturday (11/17), Barbara Jazzo, a prenatal massage therapist, certified childbirth educator, and long time meditator & yoga practitioner, will be teaching Preparing for A Tranquil Birth at TSA. Join Barbara from 5-7pm to learn how to prepare for labor and childbirth in a calm and peaceful way. A note from Barbara is below:
I have been teaching comfort measures and the tranquil birth class for over 5 years, and I love doing so. It gives me the opportunity to work with pregnant couples so that they can truly understand how different labor positions can help move the baby into an optimal place for his/her birth. I am passionate about using meditation and breathing to help couples ease their anxiety about the birth process and their fear of pain so they can have an easier and/or more satisfying experience. I like to end the class with as much hands on massage instruction as possible because massage can ease the discomforts of both pregnancy and labor for mom. I am always filled with joy when I hear from those I have taught that using the breathing or meditation or the positions had really helped them get through the delivery.
