CHILDBIRTH EDUCATION CLASSES
My classes are 3-4 hours in length, taught in the privacy of your own home on your schedule! I provide instruction for you and your partner or other support person and include a packet of supplemental materials as well as hands on practice where I’ll teach you and your partner/support person some of my favorite tricks for making labor more comfortable.
In the class we will cover:
What happens during labor-including how to recognize when you are in labor and what happens, and how you might be feeling during each stage of labor (its not all about dilation!)
How you can affect the labor process before and during labor
Pain management in labor-including mental preparation, relaxation and coping mechanisms (with hands on practice, plus techniques for you and your partner to use)
Pain medication and labor
Evidence based best practices for a safe, healthy and satisfying labor and birth
What to expect at the hospital
Inductions, C-sections and other common interventions
Postpartum health and expectations.
