Expecting a baby and looking for a quality childbirth class? This very unique and innovative weekend birth preparation workshop is offered from a heartfelt perspective with an emphasis on nurturing your relationship as a couple, as you prepare for your baby's birth. Don't miss this special workshop which includes the inspiring, empowering and unforgettable "Ice Journey". Located in Tacoma, Washington For those of you who have previously attended a childbirth preparation class or, who prefer to take the fast track to your labor and birth preparation consider registering for the "Labor Tools and Techniques Workshop ". If you are expecting your first baby, it is highly recommended that you attend the 2-day Birth Preparation Workshop which includes the "Ice Journey". Both workshops provide you with a wonderful opportunity to "hang out" with other expectant parents and to make new friends! Feedback from couples who have participated in the "Ice Journey" The "Ice Journey" has generated a lot of interest from people who have viewed my website. It is very difficult to fully explain the experience ... it truly is something you need to witness and experience in person. There is no script, but rather my narration during the "Ice Journey" flows from what I learn about the expectant parents in the initial stages of the childbirth class regarding their fears, concerns, worries, needs, preferences, personalities, relationships, etc. Basically, it is a very realistic and heartfelt labor simulation that goes above and beyond just focusing on contractions. We go to a much deeper level that involves the emotional, mental, spiritual as well as the physical power and influence of the birthing experience with an emphasis on nurturing and strengthening their "couple" relationship.
