Childbirth Educator

Childbirth Education classes are incredibly valuable. They help bring light to the pregnancy, labor, and postpartum experience. Through evidence-based education and teaching methods, childbirth education enables women and their partners to make the experience a more physiologically and emotionally empowering time. Some topics covered are:

  • Relaxation techniques
  • Building a community 
  • Education about birthing options 
  • Tips for an easier, healthier pregnancy 
  • Informed consent with providers 
  • Breastfeeding education 
  • Preparation for postpartum
