"I will never, EVER forget..."
-Maria Midwifery client
Our childbirth classes are designed to provide the maximum benefit to you and your birth partner(s). In these
classes you will learn what to expect in labor and how to cope with contractions AND the things that you didn’t expect!
You will learn tools and techniques to empower you to go through the experience of childbirth with information and courage.
You will learn to identify the physiological changes during labor, including dilation, effacement and station.
You will also accurately identify the stages of labor and will have many tips and techniques for how to navigate each of them.
Our goal is to have you prepared for birthing your baby as nature intended – powerfully and beautifully,
working effectively with your body and your baby, so that when your baby arrives you are fully able to
capture every precious detail in your heart and mind forever. We don’t want anything to come between you
and your baby in that first, magical hour – not us, no separation from your baby, no drug-induced haze or
even maternal exhaustion should mar that once-in-a-lifetime "welcome to the world"!
We will include your support person(s) in the classes so that they will know how to recognize the faces and
gestures you might make in labor, what those signs mean, and how they will be able to help you in each moment.
We also offer sibling preparation classes for families who want older children to be present at the birth.
We recommend that childbirth classes be taken between the 30th and 36th weeks of your pregnancy. Depending on
client's needs, we schedule classes for either two full days or four half days.
