Class Experience

This is a two-day class, meeting Saturday & Sunday from 12-5.
We help pregnant moms and Partners feel confident so they can be at the center of their birth experience, able to advocate for themselves and their baby.

In The Power of Birth, we help prepare pregnant mothers and their partners for childbirth. Through deep examination of how a woman’s body prepares for, labors and gives birth, you will discover the amazing changes that will take place and how trust in your body is paramount. Moms leave class feeling confident in her ability to birth her baby.

Couples are supported during class by looking at their fears, worries, and ideas about pregnancy, birth and becoming parents. These are discussed, embraced, and addressed together and as individuals. Through presenting only the most current, evidence based information about pregnancy, labor, and childbirth, we feel confident that you leave class able to speak up, ask questions, and make informed decisions for yourself and your baby. We assist parents in examining the kind of birth you want, the many options that are available to you, and the importance of flexibility.

In our Childbirth Classes, we welcome moms with their partners, same-sex couples, and single parents that are preparing for both hospital and at-home births, receiving care from Midwives or Obstetricians, and who have single or multiple pregnancies.

Our classes draw from many different birth philosophies: Informed Beginnings, BirthWorks, Lamaze, and Bradley.

Please check out our Breastfeeding and Parenting Workshops which compliment this weekend class. You can add either or both workshops when registering for this class. (only $100 additional when registering for CBE and both workshops, registration for the Breastfeeding workshop along with the Childbirth workshop includes a complimentary in-home lactation visit).
