Congratulations on your pregnancy!
Let me be the first to congratulate you on your choice to educate yourself in the area of childbirth. The more knowledge you have on the subject, the more choice/options you have. Informed consent is so important during this journey to becoming a parent.
Natural Birth Classes
My childbirth classes prepare couples for a healthy pregnancy and birth experience using natural, normal birthing techniques.
I use a relaxed, casual approach to teaching with the use of videos, games, props, and open discussions. My classes are small to allow for individual attention about the natural process of birth. The classes are mother and husband focused, so you will both be well prepared for pregnancy, birth, and beyond!
Some of the topics covered in classes are:
- Staying healthy for you and baby during pregnancy, breastfeeding and beyond.
- Specific pregnancy exercises to help prepare your body for normal labor and delivery.
- Information on excellent nutrition during pregnancy to help keep mom and baby healthy.
- Relaxation techniques that can be used in pregnancy for stress reduction and also during labor.
- Husbands learn how to support the mother in pregnancy and how to be her advocate during labor and birth.
- In depth information on the different stages of labor.
- Positive labor positions.
- Writing your birth plan.
- Positive communications with your birth team.
- Breastfeeding and basic newborn care.
- What to expect in the postpartum period.
