Childbirth classes

Did you know I teach childbirth education?

My mission:
To educate and empower parents-to-be by creating a safe, 
non-judgemental space to share knowledge and practice skills.

What are my classes about?

  • My childbirth classes:
    • aren’t about what to expect, but on how to free yourself of those expectations, identify any potential fears holding you back from enjoying this journey, all while receiving evidence-based information.
    • are a mix of learning how to use what our environment provides along with our intuition and evidence-based techniques.
    • provide tools to help you journey through pregnancy and transition into the beginning of a new chapter—parenthood.
  • My classes teach:
    • the anatomy & physiology of the female body
    • the power and closeness of partners sharing the birth experience
    • tips on how the birthing partner can support mom during labor
    • signs and stages of labor
    • pain-coping techniques
    • physiological childbirth
    • the hormone cocktail mom undergoes during labor
    • necessary vs. unnecessary interventions and how they are used
    • emotional and mental preparation for childbirth
    • positions that can be used during labor and pushing (classes provide time to practice them too)
    • daily relaxation practices

Who am I, and what do I believe in?

  • I am a wife and mother of two children. I found my passion in childbirth when I was pregnant with my first in 2012. I was blessed to have support from all angles during both of my pregnancies, and this inspired me to provide that for other mothers-to-be and their partners.
  • I believe in:
    • the importance of the involvement of both the mother-to-be and her labor partner, whether that be her husband, wife, best friend, or grandma.
    • pregnancy being a time to solidify important relationships to better navigate the upcoming addition to your life.
    • starting to build a village before the birth a your baby.
    • teaching evidence-based information, providing tools, and practicing skills in order to help mother and labor partner be as confident as possible before, during, and after labor.
    • practicing stress-relieving techniques in the circle* as well as encourage mother-to-be and her labor team to practice at home.
    • making meaningful contact with people. Everyone has energy, and the more we use and exchange the positive energy from our experiences, the more we can learn and excel.
    • doing what works for the family and respecting each other despite any differences.
