Wellness and Parenting Education for Growing Families
The mission of Breathing Space includes supporting families during the transformative time of pregnancy, birth, and early childhood. Our workshops and support circles offer parents a safe place to learn about caring for baby and themselves. Our individual support services offer one-on-one support through the birth and early parenting period.
Beyond the Bump – Preparing for Baby
While childbirth preparation is important, the actual birth of baby is very brief compared what happens afterwards. Our prenatal Beyond the Bump workshop series covers wellness and parenting topics for new families: breastfeeding, baby care, normal infant sleep, postnatal recovery, planning for new parenthood and more.
Comfort Measures and Labor Support
Yoga and Comfort Measures for Pregnancy & Labor
Prepare your partner to be your best comfort and support during the weeks leading up to and during labor. Learn birth prep partner yoga, massage and therapeutic tools to soothe physical and mental discomforts. We will cover breath work, gentle stretching, comfort measures, relaxation techniques, and enjoy one another while bonding with baby.
