Education At A Glance

Private Childbirth Education

We don’t teach “One Size Fits All” group childbirth classes because there is no size that fits all. Every woman sees her birth through the lens of her own lived experiences, and no two women need the same information in the same way. Birth preparation is so much more than understanding how the body works and what a labor and birth timeframe is according to statistical averages. Our Childbirth Educator takes the time to learn about each individual woman.

Hours and number of meeting times are determined on your base knowledge and goals for labor and birth. An average course consists of 3, 3 hour sessions and includes workbooks.

Knowing how to initiate and continue breastfeeding after birth is crucial for a comfortable and successful breastfeeding experience.

But we’ll go over your previous experiences and pinpoint what worked, what didn’t, and how to prepare for a new, more positive experience.
