Private Childbirth Preparation

Private Classes

- Is your schedule unpredictable or changeable, making a group series impossible to attend?

- Do you have special circumstances that need to be taken into consideration?

- Maybe you prefer working one-on-one rather than in a group situation? 

Whatever your circumstances and needs, you and your baby benefit from getting the support and knowledge you need so you are ready for the immense life changes that are happening. Taking care of yourself in the last part of your pregnancy, making sure you and your partner (or other support person) are prepared for your upcoming birth and knowing key information about breastfeeding as well as postpartum needs and life changes is essential for a smoother transition to new family life.

I can work with you privately to help you be ready for your labor & birth and to have a smoother transition to your new family life. I work privately in person, via Zoom/online or in hybrid formats depending on your needs and situation.

How do private Bradley® classes work?

For a private series, I often combine recorded videos of recent live classes (watched in your own time before we meet) with one-on-one LIVE Zoom sessions for Q&A, all physical labor coaching & training as well as other specific topics that need to be covered. Combining recorded class videos with one-on-one time together allows for increased flexibility and makes a private course more affordable without cutting out essential information.

Some possible private course options are detailed below. Private classes can be worked around your needs and the options listed below are suggested as ideal, but can be flexible to work with your situation. The time you have to prepare, your schedule, you and your partner's needs as well as other factors are all taken into consideration when I set up a private schedule of classes.

 

If you live in the L.A. area and want sessions in person or a hybrid combination, contact me and I can create a schedule that works for you.
