Childbirth Education Series

In this four week series, you and your chosen birth partner will learn about the inner and outer journeys of birth. You’ll learn the anatomy and physiology, the science and evidence, the birth interventions and protocols, the vital process of informed decision-making, and how to create your birth plan. You’ll also learn the spiritual/emotional/psychic/embodied aspects of birth, how to approach pain and process fear, how to cope and find comfort, and how to connect to your baby and body. This class goes deep–for both the birthing parent and the partner. We want you to come away from the series feeling confident and prepared to bring your baby into the world in whatever way feels most authentic to you. The class is perfect for folks planning hospital births, planning unmedicated births, planning to get an epidural, planning to birth at home or birth center, and so on! It truly has something for everyone. Each session is roughly 2-2.5 hours in length. The series includes a comprehensive guidebook full of information, exercises, resources, and citations.
