What our childbirth preparation classes include (and what makes us different)
These are just a few of the questions that you will have answered in our classes:
Feel calm and confident about your ability to give birth. Learn how perfectly designed your body is to give birth.
Your body was made to have this baby. Unlike the medical community which treats labor and delivery as a sickness, instilling fear into young mothers, you need to know that your body was equipped to birth this baby in a wonderful way! And you have choices and a voice as to how that happens.
Take away the fear of the unknown. Feel prepared and educated from start to finish.
We have been there. Now let us guide you through. Learn the stages of labor, what is happening in your body and with your baby throughout the process. Learn about the different choices you have and decisions you may encounter throughout the labor and delivery process. Go into your birth confident and prepared!
Have the best recovery ever. Learn how to savor every moment with your little one. Because postpartum matters.
Far from your journey ending at birth, it is just the beginning. We believe postpartum and the immediate several weeks and months afterwards are just as important. Learn practical suggestions for recovery, helps with common struggles of new parenthood and learn the basics of newborn care.
