COMFORT MEASURES

Comfort measures provide natural pain relief and can be very effective during pregnancy, labor and delivery. Due to COVID-19 hospital limitations, if we cannot be physically present at your birth, we will teach your partner/loved-one, comfort measures to support you. This session will allow your partner practice time, to be familiar and to accompany my virtual verbal instruction.
