Doula and breastfeeding FAQ

How are my natural childbirth classes unique?

I teach couples ways to stay low risk.
While occasionally there are risk factors out of your control, staying healthy and low risk can help to avoid complications. Low risk mothers have more choices.

Relaxation is the key during labor.
It is the safest and most effective way to reduce unnecessary pain and to handle any pain that you do experience. While other methods seek to control the sensations of labor (emphasizing distraction as their Primary labor control technique), mothers are encouraged to trust their bodies (emphasizing relaxed abdominal breathing and relaxation throughout labor).

What is covered in class?
I use many different kinds of visual aides to keep the class interesting and fun. In my classes you can expect DVDs, activities & games, class participation, contests and prizes. We will practice different labor positions & techniques, prenatal exercises and relaxation.

What if I don’t have a “husband?”
I accept all mothers interested in taking a childbirth education class regardless of your marital status, race, or religion. Because I teach labor coaching, it is recommended that you bring a support person who will be with you at your birth to class. For example, this person can be your husband, boyfriend, partner, mother, sister, friend, or doula. Everyone is warmly welcome!

When should I start?
It is never too early to learn about healthy nutrition, exercise, and pregnancy information which can benefit you throughout the entire pregnancy. However for most couples, the fifth month of pregnancy is the suggested time to begin a class series. The earlier you start, the better prepared you'll be physically, emotionally, and mentally.

 How much do classes cost?
The cost is $325 for the 12 week series. This includes 2-3 hours of instruction each class, a Student Workbook, handouts, access to my lending library, and a $100 discount on my doula services.
