Preparing for a Hospital Birth with Hilary Seamans

  • Five Flavors Herbs, Inc. 344 40th Street Oakland, CA, 94609 United States (map)

This class will introduce hospital birth protocol and possibilities, aimed at preparing soon-to-be parents and partners for the birth experience unique to Bay Area hospitals. We will cover "typical" labor and delivery progression, common medical interventions seen in the hospital setting, birth plans, and pain management techniques for partners and birthing parents, with or without the additional aid of pharmaceuticals.

Hilary Seamans is a birth doula in the East Bay. She completed her DONA training in 2012, and her Masters of Chinese Medicine in 2016.
