Childbirth Education

We Offer a Variety of Education Options and

Childbirth Classes that Work for your Family

Doula for Birth is proud to offer a comprehensive and unbiased approach to childbirth education focusing on the unique needs of the class participants, along with evidence based information. My goal is to assist you in preparing for your birth with confidence, by providing you with the tools needed to make informed decisions every step of the way.

Families will learn about pregnancy health and nutrition, physiology of labor, relaxation and pain management techniques, birth choices, standard procedures and how to confidently navigate through all options. Each session will include hands-on activities that will create a deeper bond with a mother’s partner and prepare them for the incredible experience of childbirth. Our classes include judgment-free discussion of all birthing options and scenarios including natural birth plans, pain medications VBACs, and cesareans. We encourage our students to share openly and connect with other parents in the class to begin building their community for years to come!

You may also enjoy your own private online self-paced classes, you may select from Understanding Birth, Understanding Mother and Baby Care, and Understanding Breastfeeding.  Classes are individually priced.  Save when purchasing all three classes!  For more information on the classes, please see below or contact me.
