Birthing Preparation

Let's make sure you're ready

Knowledge is Empowering!

This is a Choice-based AND Skills-based Birthing Preparation class. By this I mean that you will learn how to make informed choices as well as learn the skills needed to help labor progress and skills to cope with labor, even if planning to use pain medication, the knowledge and skills will help you make that decision and get to that point. I strive to make sure all my clients are heard and concerns are addressed. 

Know your options and become invested in your pregnancy and birth. My classes are designed for the pregnant person AND her husband/partner/support person. Husbands/partners/support people should feel confident in knowing how to support her during labor and birth as well as be her advocate.
