Class Descriptions

Birth Partner 101

Childbirth Education

Comfort Measures : The 5 Senses

You’ve been to the childbirth education and Lamaze classes, and you both prepared for what her body is about to do. But do YOU feel prepared on how to support her emotionally and physically? Do you feel prepared on how to support you too? Oftentimes, the birth partner gets pushed aside as mom is being taken care of. This is usually unintentional, but can happen at any point during pregnancy, labor, and/or the postpartum period. This class is designed specifically for the birth partner and/or support person(s) to prepare you emotionally and physically for the road ahead.

Cost: $55/couple; covers the cost of class materials, and a snack

Our Childbirth Education class is a 3-4 hour comprehensive guide on the labor process, how birth works, common hospital and birth center procedures, birth planning, B.R.A.I.N., a brief overview of comfort measures, breastfeeding, the postpartum period and more. During this class, we will focus on how to stay calm in the moment and make thoughtful decisions when they matter the most. If you don't have time to take a Child birth Education series, this class is perfect for you!

Cost: $100/couple; covers the cost of class materials, and a snack

Learn how to utilize the 5 senses to enhance comfort during pregnancy and labor. Our professionally trained doulas will teach you some of their tips and tricks used for birth clients. These techniques can be practiced in almost any birthing situation, including whether or not you choose to have pain medication during labor. These tips are great to have on hand for unexpected situations such as a fast labor or failed epidural. Don't want a birth doula? No problem! Take our Comfort Measures class and equip yourself with a few professional hands-on techniques so that you can deal with the intensity of birth!

Have you ever heard "Once a c-section, always a c-section?" More and more women are learning that this is no longer true. Vaginal Birth After Cesarean is usually much safer and reasonable option versus a scheduled repeat cesarean. Our goal is to educate more women about this option and provide them with research and statistics so that they can make a truly informed decision.

VBAC Education is designed to prepare you with statistics, research, medical terminology and general knowledge about VBAC/CBAC/RCS so that you can be fully prepared for your upcoming birth. Struggling with deciding between VBAC and RCS? This is the perfect starting point. Spots are filling up quickly so be sure to register now!
