#1 BIRTHING CLASS VIDEOS: 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 VIDEOS: 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 VIDEOS: 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!
