The aim of our child birth classes is give you tangible tools to take with you into your labor and birth. It is our hope that you leave feeling empowered and informed about your choices surrounding labor, birth and the postpartum period. We teach from a comprehensive model, so whether you’re planning for a hospital or home birth, unmedicated or wanting to access use of an epidural or other pain medications, or if your plans are open and flexible and your goal is want to learn about your options, we want to give you the information and tools to do so. When meeting in-person for class at our studio, we keep our classes capped at ten couples so that you have opportunity to build community and to have your questions answered in an in-depth and personal manner.
As of August 2021, we are once again offering our in-person model for our five week classes. Masks are required for all, and classes are kept to a smaller size to accommodate some distance with seating.
If you are interested in a virtual option, our One Day Express classes are virtual with a live instructor through Zoom!
Class Information for all formats covers: Late Pregnancy / Stages & Phases of Labor / Anatomy & Physiology of Labor / Hormones in Birth / Comfort Measures / Optimal Fetal Positioning / Choices in Birth / Possible Interventions and How to Navigate / Coping with Pain in Labor / Cesarean Birth / Coping & Relaxation / Planning for Immediate Postpartum

Kind words from past students:
“I absolutely loved this class. Julia and Christy are so knowledgeable, warm, funny, and thorough… I felt safe to ask any question, laugh and begin to look forward to the amazing experience birth is. I also made friends in this class and we plan to start a mom’s group. Having the classes in a home also made it very cozy. I couldn’t recommend this class more highly.”
