Childbirth Prep in a nutshell!

This childbirth session is designed to prepare expecting women and their partner’s for labor and birth in a condensed, yet comprehensive way. These classes are evidenced based and non-judgmental. They incorporate coping techniques for labor, including pain medication, to help each family find what approach is going to best support them. We will also focus on:

Signs and Stages of Labor

When to go to the Hospital

Pain Management Techniques

Pain Medication Options

Understanding Medical Interventions and Induction

Cesarean Birth and Prevention

Childbirth is a normal body process and my goal is to supply you with the most up-to-date information so you can collaborate with your Doctor/Midwife and partner to create a more fulfilling birth experience. My classes are great for moms hoping for a medicated or unmediated birth.

Class cost $250/couple
