private childbirth classes

If you prefer private sessions, together we can arrange for independent classes in your home. We will customize the course material to suit your schedule and needs. You can choose to follow the regular curriculum or focus on specific areas.

Each of the two private classes runs for 2-2.5 hours. I leave you DVD’s and relaxation exercises to practice between sessions.  The objectives of the series are for you and your partner to become familiar with labor management tools and techniques, build trust in the birth process and confidence in your ability to birth your baby.

 During these two sessions we typically cover:

  • abdominal breathing techniques
  • stages of labor and the natural birth process
  • relaxation exercises & visualizations
  • preparing your birthing space
  • positions to promote progress in labor
  • options for supportive care providers
  • massage techniques
  • how to navigate the hospital system
  • pain management strategies
  • natural alternatives to common interventions

As part of the private class I invite participants to attend the special classes taught by other birth professionals as part of the 12 week series.  (For current offerings, see Classes)

Cost $300 (some insurance policies offer reimbursement for childbirth education)

Additional travel fees may apply depending on where you live.

Please contact me if you have any questions or want to schedule private classes.
