HYBRID CHILDBIRTH CLASSES
As the world trends more towards normalcy we are so excited to see you back in person for Childbirth Education, sort of! We have designed a Hybrid Childbirth Education Workshop as a wonderful opportunity to both learn from the comfort of your home and meet in person, which we know you have all been craving. We too have been missing in-person community and the chance to invite you into our warm space. This unique workshop is structured so that we meet virtually for the first two sessions, learning about the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy and birth, stages of labor, medical interventions and when there is room for discussion, what happens to our babies when they first come earth side, and how to plan and provide for your delicate postpartum recovery period.
After laying the foundation with two virtual classes, WE MEET IN PERSON on one Saturday, practicing hands-on comfort measures for pregnancy and labor, learning how to care for our babies once they are born, and exploring the early days of breastfeeding with an incredible Lactation Consultant. We pride ourselves on helping you prepare your mind and body for labor and we emphasize the importance of your relationship with your labor partner and help prepare them for what to expect and how to best be present to support you. We will guide you as to how to communicate your vision for your birth with your entire support team.
Our goal is for you to walk away with useful knowledge, confidence, a deeper connection with your body and the birth process, and a resource list of professionals to assist you with every step of your pregnancy and postpartum recovery. We are excited to be in community with you and other birthing families, helping you to feel safe and connected as you walk into parenthood.
Virtual classes will meet via Zoom, from 5:30-8:00 pm, and in-person class will meet from 9:00 am -1:00 pm. You will receive a manual via email. Please bring a lunch for our in-person session and we will provide drinks and light snacks.
