Here are some highlights from the Birth Companions/DONA workshop with Debra Pascali-Bonaro last weekend. We started out sitting around in a circle, with notebooks at hand, listening intently to what Debra had to say...
|Day One, Hour One|
|Debra explaining about positioning.|
As I was saying - Birth is Simple! An introduction to the concept of pleasure during the childbearing year.
|And That's It!|
Debra brought her birth cards out - a wonderfully innovative tool that really helps the new parents to imagine and understand what their options may be, and how one choice will have consequences on how the birth will unfold. The students played with these cards to learn how a doula can help the new parents to make choices prenatally.

|I Love You|
Taking the time to treasure each other and ourselves.
We learned important techniques to use during labor and birth: the rebozo was a favorite! And of course the messiness of the room was no longer a consideration. We were getting down to the ground and having a good time!
|Shake and Lunge!|
