Description

This class is held either Online OR In-person, in alternating months.  Be sure to carefully verify your format and location when you register.  

Join our us for this hands-on one hour class for you and your birth partner. Birth partners will learn and practice simple acupressure points that can be used during labour and delivery to help manage pain, calm the mind, and improve efficiency of labour. You will leave with practical skills as well as printed material for future reference.

One spot is good for two people – it is important to bring your birth partner to this class.

Oona's studio mask policy

Masks are highly recommended but optional in all studio classes. Please do bring your mask with you though, as masks are mandatory in all common areas in our clinics, including reception, hallways, etc.
