Class 2: Homework
  1. Read Section 2 Links & PDF’s
  2. Do some research!  Explore the internet, ask a friend, read a book, talk to a doula and discover a positioning or labor support technique to share with other couples.
  3. Have a talk with your partner about what you like when you are in pain, fatigued or ill.  Do you like physical attention or would you rather be left alone?  Are you quiet and withdrawn or outgoing? Tell your partner a couple things they can do to support you through labor…Imagine a few comforting words and phrases…share with class if you would like.
