We believe the best service we can provide our clients is to help them know what their options are, then serve them in the methods and options they choose. A large part of what we do is provide classes and training related to pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum. All class fees cover the expectant mother and one support person. If you are interested in any of these classes, please send us a message!
The Facts of Birth: Your Evidenced-Based Guide to Childbirth
The goal of this class is simple: we want expectant parents to feel confident, supported, and powerful as they ask questions, make decisions, and navigate their individual birth journey. Rooted in the Lamaze approach to pregnancy, birth and parenting, research-based information is used as the core of the discussion as we cover anatomy and physiology, stages and phases of labor, comfort measures, pain medication options and other interventions, and postpartum care of mother and baby. The small class size supports group discussion, hands-on practice, and making connections with others in a similar life stage. Designed to help you make safe and healthy choices that are best for you and your baby, this class is for everyone!
