The Natural Baby Doulas Hybrid Childbirth Class

(2 in-person classes and 3 online classes)
 

These days, everyone is busy and we know that you want to prepare for your birth and postpartum.  But at the same time, it's difficult to find time to go to classes week after week.  We've designed our curriculum to do the most important things in person at our two classes and then we give you our videos, homework, and other resources for the three online classes at home on your own time.  Our classes provide the education that families need to understand common scenarios in labor, make informed decisions about their care, and be prepared for their birth.  

 

Class 1 (online): Nutrition and exercise in pregnancy and facilitating great communication with your care providers

 

Class 2 (in-person): What to expect in each stage of labor, comfort techniques, and positions to use in labor

 

Class 3 (online): When and why different medical interventions may be needed in birth

 

Class 4 (in-person): The pros and cons of interventions, cesarean birth, the immediate postpartum period, and developing your preferences

Class 5 (online): The fourth trimester, newborn care, and postpartum preparation for the whole family


One of the greatest benefits of taking this childbirth class is that we are able to cover a lot of material in a very short amount of time since there's the online portion that you can do at your own pace.

 

Sarah Carter and Jessica Bower teach this class together.  Sarah taught The Bradley Method Childbirth classes to hundreds of students and Jessica has a Master's Degree in Education.  Together they have attended over 350 births and they bring their passion for education and experience in birth to you in this unique class.   The cost of the class is $150.  This includes all materials, 2 in-person classes (6 hours of in-person instruction) and the 3 online classes as well.  

Condensed Childbirth Education Class

(One time course - 3 hours of instruction)

 

Traditional Condensed Class: This class is great  if you can't commit to a longer class.  The class covers:

  • The stages of labor - how to identify them and what to do during each stage

  • Techniques for relaxation and labor progression

  • Coping with pain naturally during labor

VBAC Preparation Class: This class is essential for preparing for a vaginal birth after a cesarean.  This class covers everything from the traditional condensed class and also reviews:

  • Risks and benefits of VBAC and elective repeat cesarean 

  • Modifications needed for a VBAC

Jessica Bower and Sarah Carter usually teach the condensed childbirth education classes as private classes which is scheduled at the couple's convince in their home.  The cost for the private class is $150 (or $175 if travel time exceeds 1 hour).

Condensed Class Dates:

Private Condensed Class:

New Sibling Class

(1 time class - 45 minutes long)

 

Bringing home a new baby is so exciting.  However, all family members will have some adjusting to do.  This New Sibling Class will help the older children in the family be better prepared to the adjustment.  Based on each child's developmental, we will explore everything they will see, hear, and experience.  We will also discover and practice the fun ways to help and interact with their new sibling.  Each older sibling will receive a certificate of graduation as they go on to be an awesome big sister or brother!  

 

Cost is $25 per family unit.  At least one parent should plan to attend the 45 minute class.  Register online here.
