I can’t say enough good things about private childbirth education.
Picture this: you select from a menu of topics to create a customized curriculum based on your needs and interests. We arrange a time that works with your schedule. I bring everything I need to deliver an engaging and useful class in the comfort of your home. You pour yourself a cup of tea and nestle into your sofa while we learn together about pregnancy, birth, recovery and baby care. You and your partner try out positions for labour and practice comfort measures such as massages and relaxation techniques. When we’re finished, you feel good knowing you’ve given yourself the knowledge and practical tools to feel informed, prepared and confident about your baby’s birth.
Informed, prepared and confident. Doesn’t that sound amazing?
Do you have friends who are expecting? How fun would it be to put together a group class in your home? Just you and your closest friends, bonding over cervical changes and timing contractions. Let’s make it happen!
