Childbirth Preparation Classes
Having a baby is one of the biggest events in your life! Plan well with preparation classes customized to meet your individual needs!
You get to choose! Do you need an entire series that covers everything from early pregnancy to the postpartum period and infant care? Or are you already seasoned parents looking for a refresher class to learn the most up to date information and get emotionally prepared for a new birth experience?
My goal is to serve your needs and provide the best service that fits you, whether you desire a natural birth or have a scheduled cesarean section! My classes are non-biased to support you no matter where you are giving birth or who your provider is!
Personalized education done in the comfort of your home!
My birth preparation series includes many helpful natural birthing tips, as well as training for your partner to support you during labor.
You will learn how to understand medical terminology and routine procedures to make informed decisions (both hospital birth and home birth options), how to decrease pain in labor and make more space for baby to move into position, good nutrition and health during pregnancy, the development of baby from conception to birth, changes in the body, emotions, special tips for new dads, breastfeeding tips, postpartum care info, infant care, and more!
"Childbirth should be a natural event that occasionally needs medical help instead of being a medical event that occasionally happens naturally."
Giving birth is not a medical condition! It is a very natural process that has been done by women for centuries. It shouldn't be something to be feared, but rather be a joyful time to welcome your baby!
One of the topics we talk about in classes is how to be relaxed during labor. If you are relaxed during labor, scientifically speaking, your labor will be less painful and also possibly shorter! If you have a lot of tension and fear, that can actually inhibit labor and make it more painful!
