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 March 2021, we are offering a hybrid model for our five week classes, with four weeks live and interactive over Zoom with an optional in-person session at the studio for practice with comfort measures and labor positions during Week 3 of your five week series. We will also provide you with self-paced content and education materials to supplement your learning.
This optional in-person session at the studio will be offered during week three of the series, and your attendance is based on personal comfort level and health status. We will set up appointment times to allow us to keep our in person groups small. We look forward to meeting you and helping to connect you to other expectant families, as well as providing you with a variety of resources to help you along your journey.
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.”
