We've heard it's possible, and are determined to find out!
Our independent childbirth preparation classes are taught by professional doulas, and we use the most current, evidence-based, and objective information available. Our small class sizes and comfy atmosphere will help you and your partner prepare for your unique birth experience.
Our Early Pregnancy Class is perfect for mamas in their 1st or 2nd trimesters, who are figuring everything out! We will cover topics like: Prenatal Screening and Tests, Nutrition and Exercise in Pregnancy, Common Discomforts of Pregnancy (and home remedies for them!), and Local Options for Birth Locations and Providers
This class series is geared towards those in their 3rd trimester, and is perfect for couples who are preparing for thier first birth (or if previous birth(s) was difficult or disappointing), planning to birth in a hospital or birth center, and/or want unbiased information about labor and birth!
This is the same great information that is covered in our 4 Week Series, but condensed into one day if a series doesn't work with your due date or schedules, or if you just prefer this *speedy* format!
A birth doula provides the expectant couple with informational, practical and emotional support throughout late pregnancy, labor and birth, and the early postpartum days. Having an experienced professional that can work with you in your home and place of birth can be invaluable in navigating all your options, providing unbiased information, and reassurance throughout this very special time. Evidence shows that doula support can increase your feelings of satisfaction with the experience, reduce intervention and preventable cesareans, and even improve the postpartum adjustment period.
These free, no obligation sessions are an opportunity for expectant couples meet several local doulas, to learn exactly how a doula can provide support, and to get all your questions answered! Meetings are held on the first Saturdays at 10 am and third Tuesdays at 7 pm.
Being pregnant can bring numerous questions and decisions to make- it can be overwhelming! Chat with an expert who can help you manage and organize your pregnancy, while prioritizing aspects that are most important to you!
