The keys to a positive birth experience

Earth Mama Birth offers engaging, fun and informative classes to expectant couples who wish to prepare for the birth of their child(ren.)  My philosophy is that all mothers deserve a positive birth experience.  The keys to obtaining that experience are: 

1.) becoming an informed healthcare consumer,
2.) being your own birth advocate and
3.) building a supportive birth team. 

​In our class, we will discuss the importance of lining up the right kind of support for the birth you want and how to do it.  We will practice techniques, play games, watch videos and have lively discussions.  Partners play an essential role in this process and are equally supported in these classes.  Group and private classes are available..  A variety of other related classes are also offered.  The best time to start a childbirth preparation class is around the middle of your pregnancy (20 weeks) or earlier.  This will provide ample time to learn, practice and absorb the material, as well as work out any ‘road blocks’ that you might encounter in the process of preparing for your ideal birth.  Group classes are 6 weeks in duration and are appropriate for couples coming in as late as 30 weeks gestation. If you are coming across this information later in your pregnancy, have no fear! Accelerated classes are available. If you’ve already given birth and are just looking for a refresher, I can do that, too. I’d love to chat with you about your “birth wishes” and look forward to hearing from you!
