Our next virtual childbirth class will be a two-part series on September 25th and October 2nd from 10am-1pm! This will be held over 2 3-hour sessions via Zoom. This class is for those birthing at home or in a hospital setting.

Learn about the physiological process of childbirth in a manner that empowers you to welcome your baby into the world in the most gentle and loving way. An unmedicated birth enhances natural oxytocin to both the birthing person and baby allowing for better chest/breast/body feeding rates, less complications, faster recovery and better bonding. This class focuses on seeing birth as a normal process, however we support all types of birth and also cover possible interventions and pain relief options.

This class is designed around Lamaze’s 6 Healthy Birth Practices, which are:
– let labor begin on its own
– walk, move around and change positions throughout labor
– bring a support person/team for continuous support
-avoid interventions that are not medically necessary
-avoid giving birth on your back and follow your body’s urge to push
-keep birthing person and baby together, it’s best for the birthing person, baby and chest/breast/body feeding

We also do relaxation exercises for labor.

We believe that knowledge is power and so many birthing people and their partners find it easier to maneuver through the birth process if they know what to expect and why things happen, whether it be physiological or hospital procedures.

Total cost for the class is $250 per couple. Reimbursement from your insurance company may be available.
