private childbirth education

Rooted in the belief that childbirth is a normal, physiological experience, these two sessions will prepare the pregnant mother and her partner for labor, birth and the immediate postpartum period. These sessions are catered to your needs and what you would like to learn about most.

Two 2-Hour Sessions: $300


Some of the topics that can be covered are:

  • What to expect in the weeks leading up to the big day

  • What you can do to physically prepare for labor

  • How to recognize that labor has begun

  • Anatomy and physiology of labor and birth: stages of labor (i.e. early labor, active labor, pushing, expulsion of the placenta).

  • Logistics: when to call your provider, when to go to the hospital (if you are delivering at a hospital), and what to have packed in your hospital bag.

  • How to become educated medical consumers. What are the most common interventions (i.e. IVs, fetal monitoring, epidural, induction and cesarean).

  • Strategize for ways to experience your ideal birth. How to maximize your chances of having the birth you wish.
