EMBRACING BIRTH & BEYOND CLASSES
What to expect and when to book.
Which class is right for me?
Let's review our childbirth class options together..
Our cornerstone 5-part series is called Embracing Birth and Beyond. These 5 classes, taught by 3 instructors, will cover childbirth preparation including the stages of labor, comfort measures, birth options and birth plans plus we'll spend the final 2 classes covering postpartum planning, infant feeding and co-parenting. It will remain ONLINE because not all of our all-star team live locally. It's offered more often (about 9 times per year) and also includes a sample of our weekly gatherings.
We just started dipping our toes back into offering birth classes on-site in our classroom in Grass Valley, CA. You'll notice a new, accelerated version of Embracing Birth that is a 2-day, in person class complete with the option for either live online or recorded postpartum classes. We are testing out this hybrid option and it's only offered a few times this year. We'll be listening to your feedback to craft our 2023 schedule very soon!
Is the Comfort Skills Class a birth class? It is not. It's a companion class for families who would like additional support with comfort measures during labor with hands-on demonstrations and a birth rehearsal. It's a wonderful refresher course for experienced parents!
What classes does my midwife cover? A wonderful question to ask your midwife. There are different promo codes for a variety of discounts and bundles. They should have that information to share with you or please give us a call so we can help you!
