childbirth preparation - by GIna

Every family situation is unique and every birthing mother comes to the experience of childbirth in her own way with her own set of beliefs and goals.  My mission in childbirth preparation is to support families in informed decision making so they can have the best birth experience as defined by them.  This is not a "one size fits all" class!  Each class is individualized to the unique needs of each birthing family.

 

These comprehensive classes include information:

  • Physiology of pregnancy and birth
  • Optimal fetal positioning for a smooth birth
  • Creating a birth mindset
  • Medications available in birth
  • Wise use of epidurals
  • Understanding cesareans

We will discuss your birth goals and ways to achieve the best birth possible for you.  These classes are appropriate for families preparing for home or hospital birth, first time families, and families who desire a refresher course.

Fees

Virtual class pricing:  Group class $150 for a three week childbirth preparation series.  $175 with Newborn Care and Soothing class.  Self-guided breastfeeding class included.
