Comprehensive birth preparation is for EVERY birthing person – those planning an epidural, a natural, or a cesarean birth. Preparing for Birth will leave you excited and ready for whatever birth you are planning.

What makes Preparing for Birth the perfect course for you?
classes demonstrate and provide practice for various positions, relaxation exercises, types of touch, and use of tools to create effective coping rituals.
classes will prepare you for the unexpected, explaining the benefits, risks and alternatives to common interventions and effective ways to communicate clearly with your care providers.
