Birthing Beyond classes are designed to give you current information on:
Healthy pregnancies, the birth process, what to expect during labor and delivery, good things for partners to do and not to do, comfort measures, medications, epidurals, IV pain medicines, variations in labor, cesarean prevention, inductions, newborn care, choosing a pediatrician and much more. You will also learn information to make decisions when faced with the unexpected. By discovering your own "maternal wisdom" you can experience the joy and exhilaration of birth.
Private Class Options
My Private sessions are perfect for first time parents, those whose schedules cannot accomodate a traditional class or for those who want a more personal experience-tailored to your own specific needs. We will cover everything included in the weekly series. Sessions usually include two classes and can include breastfeeding basics.
A Refresher series is a great way of reviewing your last birth while preparing for this new arrival. This is a 1-2 evening series to begin focusing on this pregnancy.
For those of you looking for VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) support look no further! I have a special 1-2 evening private class series designed for you. We discuss and review your last birth experience, value clarification, birthing options, risk reductions, chances of success, and what to expect during the process.
If multiples are in your future, this TWIN class is a perfect opportunity to focus on all the delivery options and possibilities while giving these babies the best care possible through nutrition and prenatal care. This class can be taken early in your pregnancy to get off to the best start possible. I can also connect you with other twin moms to begin building your multiple community.
