“Birth is not only about making babies.  Birth is about making mothers – strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.

Is birth somewhat of a mystery to you? Do you want to know more about your changing body and growing baby? Are you unsure of what to expect during labor and birth? Join our community and let's talk!

Childbirth Education Classes
We passionately believe education changes birth outcomes and we desire every couple be educated in the birth process prior to labor whether they are planning a hospital birth, home birth or birth center birth. Childbirth education gives you options and helps you to make a plan for what your birth will look like. We believe in the quote by Diane Korte, "If I don't know my options, I don't have any", and absolutely believe that childbirth is most certainly a time in your life where you should know your options.

Our childbirth classes are generally taught one-on-one or in very small groups and are scheduled from 6pm-8pm one evening a week for 4 weeks.

Individual Cost: $250
