Through our classes, we help pregnant moms and Partners feel confident so they can be at the center of their birth experience, able to advocate for themselves and their baby.
During The Power of Birth 5-week series, we help prepare pregnant mothers and their partners for childbirth. Through deep examination of how a woman’s body prepares for, labors and gives birth, you will discover the amazing changes that will take place and how trust in your body is paramount. Moms and partners leave class feeling confident in her ability to birth her baby.
Couples are supported during class by looking at their fears, worries, and ideas about pregnancy, birth and becoming parents. These are discussed, embraced, and addressed together and as individuals. Through presenting only the most current, evidence-based information about pregnancy, labor, and childbirth, we feel confident that you leave class able to speak up, ask questions, and make informed decisions for yourself and your baby. We assist parents in examining the kind of birth you want, the many options that are available to you, and the importance of flexibility.
Following each Power of Birth Series is our Breastfeeding/Baby Care Workshop, a three-hour class we recommend all first time parents take. When coupled with our Childbirth Series, the workshop is discounted $25 and includes an in-home lactation visit once baby has arrived. You can register for both on our registration page!
Once your baby has arrived, we provide every couple with a 4th trimester/postpartum workshop on the first 4-5 months of parenthood. We cover what this period is realistically like for babies, parents, and your new family. All of the wonderful resources that exist in your community for new parents and infants will be available. In addition, we will offer referrals for any family that needs more support. Couples determine which class date fits their baby’s birth date best. We recommend that families attend this workshop in the first month of their baby’s life.
In our Childbirth Classes, we welcome moms with their partners, same-sex couples, and single parents that are preparing for hospital, birth center, or at-home births; receiving care from Midwives or Obstetricians; and who have single or multiple pregnancies.
Our classes draw from many different birth philosophies: Informed Beginnings, BirthWorks, Lamaze, and Bradley.
