Home   About Me   My Classes   Why 12 Weeks?   Course Content

My classes are informative and fun! Class sizes are kept small to allow for individual attention. Whether you plan on birthing in the hospital, at a birth center, or at home; this class covers all birth settings.

Why are my classes 12 weeks long? Because I have a lot to share with you! This is, by far, the most comprehensive birthing class you can take! The series will cover:

  • Ways to stay healthy and low risk
  • Well-balanced pregnancy nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Being comfortable during pregnancy
  • 1st and 2nd stage labor/labor rehearsals
  • Writing your birth and postpartum plans
  • Drugs and interventions
  • The coach's role
  • Variations and complications
  • Newborn procedures
  • Postpartum care 
  • The advantages of breastfeeding
  • Baby care

Concepts are reinforced with hands-on practice, games, discussions, and videos.

Are you interested but don't have 12 weeks left in your pregnancy to take a full course? Please contact me. We may be able to work something out.

What if you don't have a partner? You can bring a friend or relative to act as a labor companion, but it is not required.

I teach from my home in Port Charlotte, and my family has cats. Please let me know if cat dander poses a problem for you or your coach, and I will do my best to find an alternative meeting place. 

Call me or send me an E-mail to register or if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

The series beginning on February 25 is for June, July, and August due dates.

The series beginning on May 21 is for September, October, and November due dates.

Due before June? Please contact me! We may be able to work something out!
