Relief and Relaxation Refresher @ Magnolia Birth Center - Room B
Aug 12 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

This class is designed as a refresher for moms and support people who have already taken a childbirth class, have at least one birth behind them, and just want a short “tune up” refresher on the comfort measures that will support them through labor and birth.  This is NOT a full childbirth class and does not meet the requirements of a class for first time parents.  Cost is $25, payable on the night of class.  Bring a pillow, water and snacks, and up to two support people.  Feel free to load a birth playlist on your phone and share with the class!  Dress comfortably and be ready to move; this is a hands-on class.

Contact instructor Mary Gillett at www.magnoliaclasses@gmail.com to register.

Prenatal Yoga @ Room B
Aug 14 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

You are pregnant and your body is changing so fast! If this is your first birth, you’re probably wondering what is happening, and what will birth be like? If you’ve birthed before, you may wish to prepare consciously for your next birth. Using the tools of yoga, I invite you to connect with your body, your baby and your intuition to prepare for birth and motherhood.

In class you can expect to move with your breath and intention in a slow flowing practice with gentle opening, strengthening, breathing, visualization and relaxation techniques. All of the work we do in class will help prepare you for a peaceful and joyful experience of birth.

REGISTRATION REQUIRED
Classes are $15 for a drop-in.
Class packages are available (8 classes for $100 or 4 classes for $54)

PLEASE NOTE: your friends, family, etc are welcome to attend class with you, however they are required to pay the drop-in fee or purchase their own package. There is also a comfortable lobby for partners or family to wait while you attend class. Thank you for understanding that participation in class = payment for class regardless of your pregnancy status.
