Birth is not only a physical, medical event but also an emotional, psychological, and for some women, a spiritual event. 

Maternal Wellness childbirth classes are based on the idea that birth is a profound life event and that it offers opportunities for learning and growth. This class involves both education and exploration of feelings about pregnancy, birth, and parenting. 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. 

These classes are available as a One-Day Labor Intensive or a 4 week Birth Works Series.

The One-Day Labor Intensives are ideal for busy families who don't have time to take a longer class. This one day holistic birth class covers everything you need to know about labor! Learn how to know when you are in labor, how to avoid an unnecessary C-section, explore options for pain relief,  learn about optimal fetal positioning, relaxation techniques, and partner massage for labor.

The 4 week series covers all of the above, as well as more time for exploration about your birth preferences, more time to practice positioning and comfort techniques, transition into parenthood, infant feeding, and more!
