Private childbirth classes can be held
in person from the comfort of your home or via Zoom.
All my classes are based on hypnosis and mindfulness techniques. I cover childbirth education for hospital, birthing center and homebirths. Based around your schedule, you can start at early as 20 weeks.
The class curiculum can be adapted around what you need to know depending on where you are at in pregnancy to give you time to practice the techniques. Topics covered include:
Learn about the amazing hormones of labor but also what your uterus does and your baby's role.
Interventions & Cesarean Birth
How can you navigate interventions and advocate for your wishes but also have a plan in case of a cesarean.
Pain Relief Options
What can you do besides an epidural for pain relief? How is it done and when is a good time to get one?
Hypnosis & Mindfulness
Breathing techniques and visualizations to help keep your mind calm during contractions.
Your Partner's role
What can your partner do to support you? Use a simple exercise to find out and help them help you!
