One Day Group Comprehensive Class

During the intensive comprehensive child birth preparation course you will learn how to diminish fears surrounding pregnancy, labor, birth and early parenting. We discuss the natural physiological process of labor and birth, giving you the confidence and understanding to work with your body during birth. Birth partners are given specific tools that enable them to provide comfort and support while empowering them to maintain a calm but active role in the birth. We cover ways to navigate through unexpected turns of events using evidence based information and informed decision making.  Breastfeeding, postpartum care and newborn care are discussed to give you and your family the most comfortable transition into your new life.

“The one-day birthing workshop was awesome and I would highly recommend it to anyone having a baby. There’s so much I didn’t know! Liz is knowledgeable, caring, and funny – we loved her and knew we found our Doula too. She offers unbiased information about what to expect at every stage of labor, and helped us to understand all of our options along the way. We now feel empowered to make informed choices that are right for us. Thank you!”A very empowered family
