When to Take our Childbirth Education Classes

The earlier in pregnancy you can take our classes, the better.  The reason why is simple!  Giving birth encompasses a great deal of not just physical, but emotional and mental energy as well.  The more time you have to “process and practice”, the better prepared you will be!  But even if you have waited until your last trimester to sign up you will still learn valuable skills and be given priceless tools and techniques to make your birth the best it can be!

Class Descriptions:

Six-Week Childbirth Education Class: This isn’t just any childbirth class!  Likely to be one of the most comprehensive birth classes available today, this class has been developed by our educators after many years of experience; not just in teaching but after several years of practice as birth assistants in various settings.  Our objective educators take current research from ICEA, ASPO Lamaze, ACOG, Gaskin, Simkin, etc. and personal experience from various “methods” (Bradley, Birthing From Within, Lamaze, Hypnobirthing, etc.) and blend them together, giving you many fantastic birth-management options to explore and choose from.  You will discover coping techniques best fit for your own personality and how to use them.  And if you have a companion to take the class with you, he or she will learn to be a highly effective birth coach!  More importantly, you will be provided with the information needed to make informed choices (the foundation of empowerment), which will increase your chances of having the type of birth you desire, creating a positive lasting memory of your special day!  This foundational class was designed for first time moms or for women having their second (or third or more) baby but that are looking for an improved birth experience.  Total class time is approximately 13-15 hours and meets for 2 to 2.5 hours on Saturday mornings. 

Some of the things this class will cover includes:

  • Pregnancy Comfort, Exercise & Nutrition
  • Recognizing True Labor
  • Relaxation & Breathing Techniques
  • Labor & Birthing Positions
  • Birth Art Exercises
  • Communication & The Wish List
  • Hand & Foot & Back Massage
  • Coaching Childbirth & Support Options (Doulas)
  • Childbirth Options & Preferences
  • Anatomy & Physiology
  • Emotions During Pregnancy, Labor and Birth
  • Loads of Comfort Measures & Tricks of the Trade
  • Contraction Simulation Exercises
  • Medical Procedures & Interventions (Induction, Epidural, Cesarean, etc.)
  • Avoiding Medication if desired
  • Informed Consent
  • Newborn Tests & Procedures
  • Birth Videos & Stories
  • Guided Imagery
  • Breastfeeding Basics
  • Newborn Parenting Styles
  • Postpartum Recovery & Blues

… and much more!

Weekend “Boot Camp” Series Options:  Very similar to the Six-Week Class.  However, some topics will be condensed or not included during class time (example: Birth Art Exercise) and a little more homework will be given.  Total class time is about 12 hours and takes place on a Friday evening and most of Saturday.  This is a great option especially if you are in your last trimester of pregnancy!

Private Classes:  Our private classes are a popular option if you don’t have the time to take a series class or prefer the privacy and attention of one-on-one instruction. If you’d like more information about this type of class, download this form or call us.  We’ll put you in touch with one of our educators who, after a short interview, will help you determine the content and length of your personalized classes, which, by the way, can be taken either at CHW or in your own home! (Two-hour minimum)

More pregnancy, birth, baby, and breastfeeding classes will be added shortly!
