I teach these classes for the purpose of sharing unbiased information and resources with parents so they will be able to make informed decisions for their baby and family. My hope is to create an environment where everyone in class can listen, participate, and share. These classes are for birth parents and families planning all types of birth, whether in the hospital, home, or a birth center, and for parents welcoming their first baby or have more children.
I offer private classes or private group classes if you have friends who can join. Feeding Your Baby, Postpartum, and Labor Refresher classes are around three hours long, with a break in the middle, $175 per class. Pricing for Childbirth 4-week series is $275. No one is turned away for lack of funds, discounts available. If you are interested in taking one of the classes listed below please contact me!
