“...without connection and the right elements, a current cannot flow…”

Boise Birth Services believes that preparing for labor and delivery is an essential ingredient for a satisfying experience. Pairing the right tools and facilitating communication with your partner can help you feel more connected and positive about your labor experience.

Birth Current: A Comfort Measures Course creates confidence with the most modern and up to date practices to help you and your partner thrive during labor. Through the use of effective positioning, counter pressure, intentional touch, breathing, rhythmic movement and partnerconnection, you will walk away with valuable tools to help you achieve a fulfilling birth.


Effective position changes and movement facilitate progress during labor. Your baby has to navigate twists and turns to make it through your pelvis, and providing as much room as possible during descent allows for a shorter labor. In this course we explore labor routines for early and active labor, creating a knowledge base for your support person to use during your big day.


Utilizing items from your home and what is available in the hospital and birth centers, you will learn how to use counter pressure, heat, cold and water to help your partner support you through labor.


Touch can be a powerful form of connection while in labor. Massage, effleurage and firm pressure at the right moment and with the right intent can let your partner know you are with them, they are safe and you are in this together.


Breathing and appropriate use of vocalization in labor can bring focus to the task ahead. Rhythm in the form of breathing and repetitive movement moves you through labor with purpose, and takes your mind off of the physical contraction.


Oxytocin is the hormone that builds through trust, love and bonding. Coincidentally, it’s also the hormone necessary to facilitate labor. When your partner is present, connected physically, mentally and emotionally, the oxytocin will flow as you embark on the journey to welcome your baby.
