Childbirth Education

Preparing for Labor Experience Workshops

Feeling scared about your lack of knowledge about childbirth?

Unsure what the different options are?

Feeling overwhelmed about the medical terminology?

Want to learn natural pain coping strategies ?

Well Born Baby childbirth preparation classes are designed to offer couples a well-rounded, straightforward curriculum. As doulas and childbirth educators, we have assisted hundreds of couples through a very wide range of birth choices and experiences.

Though certified, we don’t teach any one method of childbirth preparation; rather we pull the best parts from the most popular methods, as well as from our extensive experience in the field.

There is no one right way to labor. We stand by the philosophy that birth is a normal process and strive to inspire confidence in the couples that we teach. It is our goal to demonstrate the full spectrum of options a woman has when preparing for her birth, and then to support her unconditionally.

The most important way to approach your birth is with confidence and relaxation. You achieve this by knowing what possible things to expect, developing the skills to move through your labor, and by feeling prepared to work through whatever your journey turns out to be.

Well Born Baby Classes offer a blend of lecture, demonstration, and practice and will include, but not be limited to:

  1. Anatomy and Physiology of Labor and Birth
  2. Preparing your Body and How to Adapt To Its Changes
  3. Birthing Options: Detailed Childbirth Choices and Positive Communication
  4. Labor and Birth: Your Body’s Natural Processes for the Signs and Stages of Labor
  5. Natural Pain Coping Strategies including breathing, relaxation, position choices, massage techniques, pressure points, hydrotherapy, aromatherapy options, vocalization, and much more…
  6. Pain Medication Options
  7. Labor Support–who to have at your birth
  8. Obstetrical tests and procedures: Prevention, Interventions and Alternatives
  9. Postpartum Health and the Newborn

Your body knows how to give birth and your baby knows how to be born.  Childbirth preparation gives you the knowledge and tools to make your birthing decisions so that you can have your best birth experience.
