Private Childbirth Preparation

Private Classes

Sometimes circumstances make attending a group series impossible. There are also situations in which a tailored approach makes the most sense and can give the expectant family the support and education they need to be prepared for birth, breastfeeding, and baby.

I can work with you privately to help you have the information, skills, and support you need to have a great birth and smooth transition to your new family life. I work one-on-one in person, or via Zoom for distance educations.

 

Topics and concerns I can cover with you include:

  • Optimal nutrition (I am well-educated in traditional foods, Paleo, and vegetarian nutrition and can adapt the Brewer's diet to your needs)

  • Prenatal exercises to prepare for labor & birth

  • Prenatal bonding and communicating with your unborn baby

  • Maintaining a healthy and low-risk pregnancy

  • Choices you have during pregnancy, labor and birth, and postpartum

  • Informed decision making

  • Choosing a birth place and health care provider

  • The physiology of labor and birth

  • Breastfeeding

  • Postpartum needs

  • As well as many other birth and breastfeeding related topics.

I have a special interest in working with families who want a natural beginning for their baby, but are unable to have a natural birth due to medical needs (and/or who need to have a cesarean birth) to understand what choices they have and what else they can do fulfill the natural and biological imperatives that affect bonding and attachment. Mother Nature is very complex and she created a series of processes and events that are interlinked and rely on each ohter. If one needs to be bypassed, then knowing what the next one is can be essential to protecting health and well-being. and to creating a solid family foundation with a strong bond between parent and child.

Contact me to discuss your situation and to create prenatal education designed just for you!
