What do labor and birth look like?

Instead of flooding you with information, I believe prenatal classes can meet your personal needs, give you the tools you need to approach your birth and postpartum in a way that’s meaningful to you, and fill you with confidence. Along with Birth Essentials group classes, I also offer private/personalized sessions, refresher classes to seasoned birthing families, and lactation preparation. Please be in touch to chat about your needs.

2022 Birth Essentials -  birth preparation series 

Birth Essentials is a live, online, 5 week series. We meet one evening each week from 6-8:30 pm. Every week, we explore the emotional and physical challenges of labor and birth, postpartum recovery, and early life as a new family. We practice relaxation, movement, and coping techniques that promote active birth and postpartum healing, conscious decision-making, and can help ease your transition to life after the birth. We create a space to build community with other expecting families. Series investment $125 (includes your birth partner/companion + all class materials), sliding scale available. Be in touch for information/registration!
