Childbirth Preparation Education

As part of my services, I offer a Childbirth Preparation Education course during the pregnancy, which serves 2 purposes: one purpose is to help prepare the couple for what is sometimes thought of as 'the unknown' when it comes to the physiology and science of birth. During these preparation classes, I also teach alternative pain management comfort measures, such as walking, position changes, breathing/relaxation. The second purpose is to develop trust. It's important to me to establish a relationship with my clients so they can learn to trust me, as I will be partaking in something so intimate as their child's birth.

As recent as this past February ('09), I have now added an additional service: Individual Childbirth Preparation Education classes. Now, couples who do not wish to have me (as their Doula) attend their birth, but want the pre-birth education on how to manage labor naturally, for example, can meet with me just for the classes! This can help them feel more confident in their choices about birth, while still retaining the intimacy of their birth as a couple.
