HI! I just got my workshop package from ALACE! WOOT! I am beyond excited about it. I have a few questions for those of you who went through their workshops. Am I reading correctly that we practice vaginal exams on each other? in a crowed room? i am more than a little shy with "down there" and don't know how i can make myself comfortable with this. is it optional? did you do it? what was it like (as far as privacy goes)?
also, my info says i can attend up to 3 births prior to the workshop. but it didn't give any info as to what documentation i needed for it, and what role am i to actually take. i know i can't charge, not that i would anyway. my best friend is less than a month away from her due date and wants me to "be there" for her. any tips would be so appreciated.
i really do have a passion for labor and birth, i guess i am just nervous so thats why all the silly questions.
