Mindful Childbirth and Parenting Classes
with Mary Esther Malloy, MA
Why Do Couples Choose Classes with Mindful Birth?
Birth is a profound passage into parenthood for both a mother and her partner. Couples looking to work together through their labors seek out classes with Mary Esther for mindfulness-based tools to handle labor and prepare for parenting.
Mindfulness is more than relaxation! We use the focused mind, calm body and open heart as springboards to greater insight into how you might work best with labor and parent with presence.
Additionally, Mindful Birth classes offer partners a rounded preparation for the intense work of supporting a woman through labor. This includes a deep understanding of how birth works, practical ways to support a laboring woman through the different phases of labor and any challenges that might arise, tips on preparing for a home or hospital birth, ideas for navigating hospitals, hands-on practice with massage and more.
Couples devote extra time to birth preparation with a Mindful Birth class, and find that having a host of strategies for birth and parenting makes it time well spent no matter the course of their labors.
