The Pelvic Floor + The Pregnant Push: A Workshop For Childbirth Educators, Doulas & Fitness Instructors

  • Love is Juniper 639 Vanderbilt Ave Brooklyn, NY 11238 (map)

Birthworkers, you're invited to join Chantal Traub, maven doula & childbirth educator, and Lindsey Vestal, pelvic floor therapist for their groundbreaking workshop focusing on the 2nd stage of labor and the pelvic floor! Topics include:

  • What is the second stage labor? What’s really going on with the pelvis, the baby and the pelvic floor?
  • How birthworkers can better support "pushing" (with or without an epidural)
  • Pelvic anatomy + our sacred geometry
  • The dance between the baby and the bony pelvis
  • Breathing techniques
  • A movement to support our own understanding of our pelvic health
  • Should we tell our clients to automatically do “kegels”?
  • Exercises to strengthen and protect against pelvic floor trauma
  • Pushing, labor positions and breath: the “how to”

Throughout Lindsey and Chantal's careers, they have focused on the second stage of labor and protection and healing of the pelvic floor. This 3-hour workshop will dive deep into this sacred and essential aspect of labor. Bring your questions and dress comfortably.
