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): When labor becomes complicated, 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 400 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.
Natural Baby Doulas' Self-Paced Online Childbirth Class
(5 online classes with notes and materials)
This class is specifically formulated for those who cannot register for an in-person class. Each of the five classes is one hour in length for a total of five hours of instruction. This class includes everything that our hybrid childbirth class includes (see above). Jessica Bower, the instructor of the class, will be available to you as you take the course for specific questions so that it can be relevant and personalized to your unique situation. This is a wonderful alternative to an in-person class as it includes videos of women in labor, graphics, time for discussion with your parter about real life scenarios in labor, and acting out positions and comfort techniques for you and your partner to practice. The cost of the class is $50.
