Online childbirth classes are a great option for moms with busy schedules, those who feel uncomfortable learning in a group of strangers, or those who like the idea of being able to rewatch the materials as many times as they want. What’s unique about Kopa Birth’s online course is that it isn’t just something you read like a textbook, as with many online courses. You still get a birth instructor (Kopa Birth’s founder Katie Griffin) which brings the ease of watching a real person and seeing someone demonstrate the things you’re learning.
#1 BIRTHING CLASS VIDEO: SLOW-PACED BREATHING
Would you like to learn about labor breathing techniques? In this first birthing class video, you’ll learn how to do a basic, yet powerful, Lamaze-style breathing technique: Slow-Paced Breathing. Slow-Paced Breathing is the first of several labor breathing techniques that will be presented in your Kopa Birth® natural childbirth classes. This birthing class video is featured in the KOPA® PREPARED Online Course series, class #2.
Breathing techniques can be even more powerful when used in conjunction with relaxation and movement. Consider them as one tool of many in your labor coping toolbox.
#2 BIRTHING CLASS VIDEO: VOCALIZING IN LABOR
This next birthing class video, “Vocalizing in Labor,” is taken from the KOPA® PREPARED Online Course series, class #4. In this brief video, we discuss the difference between high and low tones during labor. Learn how low tones are the best choice to promote limp, loose relaxation!
Vocalizing is just a fancy way of saying “making noise” in labor. Moaning, humming, chanting, singing…all of these are vocalizing. Many women find that vocalizing is a effective way to release tension. It’s especially helpful in the intense transition phase of labor.
#3 BIRTHING CLASS VIDEO: NATURAL HOSPITAL BIRTH
We’ll wrap up our selection of birthing class videos today with some actual footage from a natural childbirth in a hospital. One fun feature of the KOPA® PREPARED online course series is that the instructor, Katie Griffin, is pregnant too! The course culminates in Katie’s own natural hospital birth with baby #5. And you’re invited to join Katie and Seth (Katie’s husband) for the experience!
The video that you’re about to watch is a 4-minute selection taken from the full-length video of Katie’s natural hospital birth. You’ll have the option of watching the entire 1+ hour video in your Kopa Birth® online childbirth class. You’ll also have access to additional natural hospital birth footage of other couples like you!
