As a trained birth and postpartum doula my childbirth classes are designed to help educate pregnant people and their families about options for care and techniques to use during labor. These classes usually cover various forms of pain relief, from relaxation and movement to intravenous pain medications and epidurals.
Antenatal classes, also called birth and parenting classes, help you and your partner to get ready for labor, birth, breastfeeding and caring for a newborn baby. Taking classes will help you and your partner feel more confident as the birth approaches.
Childbirth Education Crash Course includes:
Prenatal and Postnatal Nutrition
Exercise + Pregnancy
Stages of Labor
Comfort Measures for Labor
Building Self Efficacy
Postpartum Care For Mom
Postpartum Care for Baby
