I believe everyone is entitled to childbirth education outside of the hospital.  So if you are experiencing financial difficulties let me know, I will work with you regarding payment.

 

$140 for 16 hours of childbirth class (includes the hands on comfort measure class)

$40 for one hour hands on comfort measures

Personalized classes held at your home or virtually to focus on what you want to know most about pregnancy and delivery. 

Topics include but are not limited to:

- baby wearing

-position movement during labor and pushing,

-what happens during inductions, c-sections, & VBACs.

-breastfeeding and new baby care are also available prior to and after baby

 * A note about the breastfeeding instruction: I go over breastfeeding during the classes and AFTER delivery if the person chooses.   I provide several nursing pillows for you to try with your baby so you can make an informed decision before you buy a nursing pillow.  In most cases I can meet you  to help with nursing or at your home.  This visit is included in the $140 fee.
