Class Details

  • You can start classes at any time, earlier or later in your pregnancy. It is recommended to start somewhere after the 5th month of pregnancy but, the sooner you start, the more time you have to practice and prepare your mind and body! And it is never too late, either. If you are afraid you are too close to your birthing time to start a 5-week class series, please contact me and we’ll see what special arrangements can be made.
  • Birth companions are an integral part of birthing, and we all work together as a team to bring your baby into the world in the way you envision. Together you will make the most important decisions for your baby and choose a supportive caregiver. (If you don’t have a partner that’s totally fine too – bring a friend, your mom, or come on your own – all are welcome!)
  • Group classes usually include several couples and are held one weeknight or one weekend morning a week.
  • Private classes can also be held at your home or another location. If you are interested in private classes, please give me a call to make arrangements.
  • Makeup classes are available for $100/class. Please contact me directly to arrange time/location.
  • Refresher courses are available for $150/couple. Please contact me for details and to arrange time/location.
