The scene is set: You are pregnant and awaiting the birth of your precious one. During your pregnancy you ate well and took a variety of classes, including childbirth and breastfeeding.  You wish there was something active you could do beyond simply waiting.  Suddenly, you hear about the art of softening and ripening of your cervix, a skill which immediately piques your interest!  Join us as we learn these and other skills and tips as well as general information to support you through the birthing and postpartum experiences.

We will explore different styles of giving birth through the lens of Chinese medicine, including a focus on the thirty-day postpartum period, during which special care of the mother is emphasized. Learn what you can do from creating a supportive, healing environment pre-birth to facilitating the family’s postpartum bonding and everything in between.

Taught by Amy Mager, MS, LicAc, the class meets from 6-7:30 pm in the Community Room of the Midwifery Center, the yellow house on the campus of Cooley Dickinson Hospital. Free and open to all.

Classes are currently scheduled for the following dates:

  • Thursday, Dec. 13
