Childbirth Education

Women have been giving birth for millions of years, and despite there being many modern birth interventions, studies have shown that women feel that their births were more successful and empowering when forgoing these interventions and opting for a natural birth, just as our ancestors did.

Decisions made during the birth process can have long lasting effects, whether it be mental or physical, on both mom and baby. Taking a childbirth education class gives you the knowledge and tools you need to make educated decisions before, during and after giving birth so that mom is happy with her birth experience and so she and baby remain as healthy as possible. My goal is to help everyone find the beauty in birth.

I go over a wide range of topics using the Birth & Beyond curriculum, including: prenatal nutrition and wellness, stages of labor, labor positions and coping techniques,  variations of pregnancy and labor, birth environment, umbilical cord care, newborn care, breastfeeding, vaccinations, postpartum care, and much more. All of this information is not just to educate mom, but also to teach partners how they can best support the birther.

Please contact me to book a private class in your home!
