Judi Block, owner of Ever Present Yoga, joined with Kathleen Whittam, owner of Delaware Doula, to host Nurturing Birth, a one-day retreat for pregnant women and their planned labor support from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. April 15 in the Life Center at Savannah Inn, 330 Savannah Road, Lewes.

Nurturing Birth will start with a prenatal yoga class taught by Block for the mothers to be. A catered lunch for the moms and one birth support person will be held after yoga. After lunch, Whittam will teach effective pain management and coping techniques for pregnancy and labor. The day will conclude with a short visualization, leaving participants prepared for their birth journey with a sense of calm, empowerment and connection.

The retreat is open to pregnant women in their second or third trimester and their planned labor partner. Yoga is for pregnant women only with their labor support partner joining for lunch and the afternoon sessions. Class size is limited and reservations are required.
