What do labor and birth look like?

Instead of flooding you with information, I believe that childbirth classes should meet your individual needs, give you the tools you need to approach your birth in a way that is meaningful to you, and fill you with confidence. In each class, we explore the emotional and physical challenges of labor and birth, postpartum recovery, and early life as a new family. We practice relaxation and coping techniques that promote active birth and postpartum healing, conscious decision-making, and can help ease your transition to life after the birth.
