Whether your due date is just around the corner or you're planning ahead, George & I can help. You can have the best possible pregnancy and birth experience with proven natural birth principles and strategies! You can give birth in the setting of your choice, with the labor support of your choice, under the watchful eyes of the health care providers you choose. You will be prepared for the unexpected so you can make wise choices should your labor not go according to "the plan."
We have experienced four spectacular, pain-med-free births of our own, and now as empty nesters, we are are helping others like you prepare for natural birth. We will prepare you, not by offering medical advice, but by teaching normal, natural pregnancy and childbirth and what has worked for others.
Join our classes where we listen and your concerns matter!
We provide information on staying healthy and fit in pregnancy and a relaxation and/or a labor rehearsal so you & your labor support (coach, doula, etc.) will be confident and comfortable with a variety of ways to manage labor contractions. You will learn what labor typically feels like and how to work with your body. You will learn how to communicate confidently and effectively with each other and your birth team, and how to make wise decisions in pregnancy and labor to prevent unnecessary interventions, should unexpected circumstances arise. Finally, you will learn about breastfeeding and taking care of your new baby and yourself after the birth. See "Course Content" tab above regarding standard class content. Our classes are enhanced with DVDs and supplemental handouts. We implement a variety of teaching methods to appeal to different learning styles.
As of Spring, 2016, we have taught over 60 series and over 200 first time and experienced birth couples! Birth stories and student feedback are available upon request.
