CHILDBIRTH EDUCATION


If you don’t know your options you don’t have any.

Birth is a normal physiological process. I believe that with education, preparation, and the help of a well-trained support team you can have an empowering birth experience. 

I teach a system of labor techniques in which the birthing person and their partner/support person play an active part. It is a simple method of increasing self-awareness, teaching people how to deal with the stress of labor by tuning in to their own bodies.


What you will learn

Every class includes the essentials of physical, mental & emotional relaxation, labor rehearsal, and videos. 

Potential Class topics include

  • Pregnancy Physiology

  • Nutrition & Exercise

  • The Birth Partner's Role
