Are childbirth classes only for people who are planning a natural birth?
Not at all! Childbirth classes are incredibly beneficial for all birthing methods. The easily digestible How, When & Why curriculum, provides all of the information you need in a way that actually makes sense and is applicable to all birthing methods.
What makes your classes different from other classes?
My classes are designed to reduce social anxieties by promoting a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere where you can be yourself and we can talk openly and be real with each other. I feel an informal, welcoming environment promotes openess and honesty and allows us to feel confident asking the questions we really want to ask. Real talk, real information. Smaller class sizes also mean more one-on-one attention for each student. Childbirth is a very personal experience, so we do away with the formalities and get to the good stuff. :)
