We recommend starting a series some time between 21-34 weeks gestation so that your last class is around 37 weeks. Please get in touch if you are further along than that and we will help you find the best class!
This comprehensive series is a must for expectant families, whether planning to give birth at home, in a hospital, or at a birth center. Over the course of six engaging classes, we equip parents with practical insights into crucial topics like labor stages, natural childbirth, coping strategies, and partner support. But it doesn't stop there; we go a step further by seamlessly integrating holistic techniques to address anxiety, stress, and foster stronger relationships, all designed to bolster your confidence as you embark on your journey as new parents.
Led by a seasoned nurse midwife and childbirth educator, our aim is to educate families on the spectrum of childbirth experiences, from the ordinary to the extraordinary. We empower you to make informed decisions within a hospital setting and prepare you holistically for the transition to life with your precious newborn.
