Home   About Me   My Classes   Why 12 Weeks?   Course Content

The best time to begin classes is when you are about 5-6 months pregnant. In addition to good nutrition, there are some exercises that you can begin before that, but the more intensive preparation usually takes place during the last trimester.

Since labor and birth are basically an athletic event, it takes time to prepare your body and to practice the techniques that will help to insure a safe, healthy, natural childbirth experience. With that in mind, classes run 12 weeks. For more details on why, click on the heading Why 12 Weeks?.

Classes are small to allow for individual attention. In addition to thoroughly educating and preparing mom and coach, we will also enjoy occasional guest speakers on various class-related topics. These may include a nutritionist, a chiropractor, a lactation consultant among others. My goal is to equip you and your coach to have a beautiful, memorable birth experience where you are empowered to make the best choices you can for you and your baby! 

Classes are on Tuesdays from 7 - 9:30pm. Sometimes, I offer Saturday classes in the mid to late afternoon. If another day and time works better for you, please call to see what we can work out! I will also consider private classes in your own home. Series of classes are listed at the right. Even though a series has started, it may not be too late to join. Call soon to hold a spot for you and your coach! 

Class price includes 12 weeks of education, a workbook, exercise and labor practices, educational games, birth movies, handouts, resource recommendations, and access to me for information and support. Please call me to register and to discuss pricing and refund policy.
