Being prepared for birth means being fully present and conscious of your body's capabilities while making the best choices for you and your family regardless of the challenges you will face.

This is a birth course will prepare you for any type of birth you are planning. Both you and your partner will be prepared physically, mentally and emotionally for labor and birth. Even if you're not sure that natural is the route for you, you will learn how to reduce your risk of interventions and cesarean birth.
This is a course with a focus on physiologically normal birth and the importance of communication and expectations. We will cover coping techniques, labor positions, breathing, and more. We feel this is best for EVERY birthing person, including those planning for an epidural. During labor, most everyone experiences some contractions and it is best to be prepared for everything.
We also cover interventions and cesarean births. Because being prepared is best. Preparation doesn't increase risk - it only makes it more likely you will have a wonderful birth experience.

Breastfeeding - This course covers breastfeeding and postpartum in a way no other course does. Developed by Amanda Devereux, IBCLC, you will have the information you need to start out on the right foot with infant feeding and partners will feel confident in supporting the breastfeeding journey.
