Birth Basics $100
Baby will be arriving before you know it so it's time to really focus on creating your birth experience. Perhaps you are feeling a little clueless as to what to expect? That's completely normal and this class can really help! We will explore topics that will clear up some common misconceptions and concerns surrounding the labor and birth process. There will be an overview of the anatomy and physiology of labor and birth, discussion on how to put together a birth plan, pain management options, interventions and the immediate postpartum, including the golden hour with your baby. Includes a full color workbook designed for either hospital birth or birth center/home birth (your choice).
This class is offered as 1 full day session (9a-4p). Click HERE for the class calendar.
Comfort Measures Workshop $55
In this hands on workshop we will explore further the tools and techniques to keep mom calm and comfortable during labor, learn the art of relaxation and how it affects labor. Build your confidence as you practice a variety of labor and pushing positions. Partners will leave this class with a deep understanding about how touch and intimacy can impact their partner in labor as they gain confidence in their supportive role.

Please Note: This workshop does not cover the basics of pregnancy, labor and birth that are taught in the Birth Basics or Refresher Class.
Postpartum and Parenthood $50
Often referred to as the 4th Trimester, the immediate postpartum can be extremely challenging for the family. This workshop will discuss postpartum recovery for mom and importance of making a postpartum plan. It is also a great introduction to transitioning home with your newborn and your new parent life! Topics include newborn procedures, baby-wearing, safe sleep, postpartum recovery, infant feeding and baby comfort techniques to help you and your partner get off to a great start with your new baby.

We will look at the many ways you can provide breastmilk for your baby, the ins and outs of how to do it, especially if you will be returning to work, in addition to a real discussion on what to expect in the first few weeks postpartum and overcoming challenges of breastfeeding.
