Birth Education and Preparation Planning

Do you feel like none of the available childbirth classes are quite right for you? Do they feel too long, too short, too religious, too secular, too geared toward natural birth, too geared toward medicalized birth, too new age, not new age enough, too heteronormative?

I wrote an article, published on Offbeat Familes. about how to go about creating your own childbirth education plan. If you would like a little more guidance, we can work together to create a plan that is perfect for you. I incorporate your spiritual or religious beliefs, your existing knowledge, your learning style, and your priorities to design a custom calendar that can include readings, videos, and hands on exercises to help you get ready for your amazing birth.

These treat the items in your calendar as “homework.” I check in with you weekly to ensure you are on top of your preparation and offer suggestions and encouragement if you fall behind. $25 per week
  • Mindfulness Meditation Guidance If  meditation fits in with your custom plan, and you would like personal guidance in some of these practices, I can share my knowledge of mindfulness meditation with you over the phone or via video chat. $50 per hour
