This comprehensive class series will prepare you to give birth without unnecessary pain or harmful interventions, using the most successful method of natural childbirth in the world!

We will cover : 

  • Anatomy and physiology of pregnancy and birth
  • Medical terminology
  • Nutrition guidance and exercises to help you feel great and stay low-risk
  • Training the husband/partner to be a highly skilled birth "coach"
  • Interventions that you may be offered during your pregnancy, labor and birth: their risks and benefits
  • Pros and cons of pain-relieving medications during labor
  • Creating a Birth Plan
  • Recognizing the stages of labor
  • C-sections and other variations / complications
  • Breastfeeding basics and newborn care

Format / length: 

  • 12 week group class, limited to a maximum of 6 couples in order to ensure sufficient personal attention from the instructor and to encourage camaraderie between students. My classes are routinely held in the Lake Elsinore / Canyon Lake area,  and the Loma Linda / Redlands area, but we do occasionally offer them in other areas (please contact me for details). I also take a limited number of private clients for those whose schedule does not permit regular attendance at a weekly group class. 

You will receive:
  • 130 page student workbook
  • Weekly instruction in a fun, positive atmosphere (each class is 2 hours in length)
  • Complimentary "class reunion" celebration after everyone's babies have arrived
  • Free attendance at our other group classes after your series has completed, as a review up until your baby arrives
  • One 15% off certificate to share with a friend, good for your class series or any of our future classes


  • Ideally, you should plan to begin your classes no later than the 26th or 27th week of pregnancy to ensure that you have completed the entire class series before your baby arrives. However, I do offer "make up" classes to get you caught up with a class that is already in progress, or private classes (in your home, at or our location) to best fit your schedule.

Upcoming classes: 

Sundays at 6:00 pm, beginning January 6th (Murrieta)
Tuesdays at 6:30 pm, beginning February 12th (Redlands)
Sundays at 6:00 pm, beginning March 3rd (Murrieta)
Tuesdays at 6:30 pm, beginning April 16th (Redlands)

I also teach private classes at my home in Murrieta or at your home (depending on location), and I will occasionally add classes in other locations in the Inland Empire if there is enough interest - don't hesitate to reach out and ask!

Enter your name and email address here to receive information about class prices and current special offerings. You will also receive two of my resource guides, "10 Drug Free Ways to Reduce Pain in Childbirth" and "How to Choose a Childbirth class."  I will also send you a free book on nutrition in pregnancy.
