Natural Childbirth Classes

Our childbirth education classes are a 3 class series. We focus on natural childbirth and allowing your body to progress the way it is intended. As midwives we teach how the woman’s body is made for pregnancy and childbirth, rarely allowing for any complications when allowed to progress naturally. The course allows you to see birth as a rite of passage that should be Screen Shot 2014-11-13 at 11.57.50 AMembraced and welcomed, not a painful experience to fear. We believe it is incredibly important for women and their partners to be educated about the process of labor & birth so they can enter with confidence.

1st Class – Our first class focuses on the anatomy and physiology of labor and birth. This includes how women’s bodies are made and how they work throughout the labor process. The babies are not forgotten when we teach of labor and delivery, as they are working just as hard in there to succeed at this huge task! Coping mechanisms during contractions are also taught, including visualization techniques and breathing.

2nd Class – The second class teaches about nutrition, exercise and possible complications that may arise. This is also the time we address any fears you may have of childbirth so you can release them before birth time. During this class we will also go over myths of childbirth, breathing techniques and pushing techniques. We also discuss what to expect when labor begins, whether you chose a homebirth, birth center, or hospital birth, we touch on what to expect at each.

3rd Class – The third and final class we will teach about breastfeeding basics, newborn care including bathing, caring for the umbical cord, changing diapers, etc.
