Yoga Birth Method

Darcy Sauers is a certified Yoga Birth Method© instructor and teaches workshops at ChildLight Yoga in Dover, NH.  She is also available for private sessions in your home.

The Yoga Birth Method© workshops are designed for pregnant women and their labor support partners. You will learn a very specific sequence of breathing techniques and yoga postures that are adapted to the physical and emotional changes of the different stages of labor and will enable you to manage contractions from a calm, meditative and controlled perspective.

The Yoga Birth Method© is for women who are interested in educating themselves about childbirth and empowering themselves during their own baby’s birth.  This is a hands-on workshop where you will learn how to connect and work with your body to take you out of the experience of pain and connect you to the experience of giving birth.

Benefits of The Yoga Birth Method©:

  • Faster labor progression as the yoga poses encourage the baby’s movement into the birth canal
  • Learn to remain focused and in control of your birth experience in a positive manner
  • A deep mother-baby connection as they work together during labor
  • Birth partners learn specific techniques to physically and emotionally assist the woman during labor

Yoga for Birth is open to women in their second or third trimester, and their labor support partners.  Visit Childlight Yoga for details and to register.
