Childbirth Education


Birth is not only a physical, medical event but also an emotional, psychological, and for some women, a spiritual event. We offer birth classes that help empower our participants to feel informed and prepared for the wonderful experience of pregnancy, birth and the transition into parenthood. We offer both 6-week Birth Works classes and One-day Labor Intensives.

 "Taking the Maternal Wellness classes was a fantastic way to prepare for the life-changing event of my son's birth. I approached my birth feeling exhilarated rather than apprehensive, and during my labor I used techniques learned in class. The instructor's entusiasm and genuine care for the parents made the classes fun, too!"

--Elizabeth, mother of one

 "As a man, the birth classes made me feel intimately involved in the birth process. I learned much about the medical and emotional sides of giving birth. It assuaged many fears and prepared me to support my wife and new baby from beginning to end."
