...I empower parents to prepare for birth & beyond, articulate their unique priorities, advocate for themselves & their child, & be informed, confident & relaxed as their journey to parenthood unfolds. I teach private, in-home classes, as well as small-group classes.
Since 2007, I have studied several childbirth modalities. I certified as an ALACE/ IBWP/ toLabor childbirth educator in 2010. Believing that having a full & varied toolkit to draw on is the most helpful approach for women and families, I incorporate aspects from a variety of modalities into my childbirth education classes.
My small-group, 8-week childbirth education series includes current, fact-based information & hands-on training regarding:
Prenatal Care Choices
Stages of Labor
Variations of Normal
VBAC (if applicable)
For private classes I tailor the curriculum to suit the woman & family's needs. I charge $500 for a small-group class & $40 per hour for a private class. I encourage the primary support people to attend as well.
