What to Expect

Classes will focus on open, honest discussion. No judgement, whatsoever. Any and all people will be welcome. The fees are per pair - one momma, one support person. Classes are set up to provide one-on-one support with the option of individual classes or small group classes (5 mommas or less). You’ll be able to choose to have the class in your home, at a pre-determined public location or virtually via video call. My aim is to provide a more comfortable atmosphere where we can be ourselves and delve deeper into the personal experiences of pregnancy, childbirth & parenting. 

Beautiful Beginnings with Katie is the only childbirth educator in the Quad Cities area, that offers a comprehensive “How, When & Why” curriculum, that is catered toward adult learners. This curriculum is evidence-based and easily digestible, offering everything a family needs to know about childbirth based on three questions: How is that done? When would I need that? Why would I need that?
