CHILDBIRTH EDUCATION ZOOM CLASSES

There is a lot to learn and I am here to break it down and make it fun for you! Are you ready? This live Zoom class delves into what to expect and how to prepare for pregnancy changes, labor, delivery, and postpartum. It is a great option for first-time parents, repeat customers to the birth experience, or couples planning a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) looking for an in-depth dive into physiology and support techniques for the birthing process.

Classes are designed to be ideal for couples (the birthing person and their support person) because there is an emphasis on support techniques specific to each step of the process. The course includes a small portion of hands-on practice for physical labor support and guided breathing techniques for labor. The teaching is meant to equip you with knowledge of what to expect, how to navigate the hospital birth experience as your own advocate, how to succeed through natural childbirth although it also covers in depth all medication-supported birth options from an unbiased perspective to help you discover the type of birth you want and feel empowered no matter how you birth.

Topics covered include: physiology of pregnancy, progression of labor and birth, coping and breathing techniques, pushing, risks and benefits of medical interventions including epidurals and cesareans, complications, comfort measures, optimal positioning, postpartum, and initial newborn care. (One day class focuses solely on labor, delivery, and comfort measures/ pain management.)


This course is ideal to take sometime after your 24th week and before your 37th week of pregnancy.
