I’ve come to realize that for many people, we (yes, myself once included!) too easily just blindly follow along with the brochures included in our folder from the hospital telling us to attend “prepared childbirth education.” Recently I’ve asked myself, exactly what was I being “prepared” for, was there a test at the end?! Did I really need weeks and weeks of training? Isn’t birth as normal of a physiological experience as intercourse (remember how awkward THAT class was in junior high?!)
This is where my Your Birth Experience classes come into play. As your educator, I can help you identify what you want and what to expect so you can make informed choices about how you want to give birth. I’m not going to prepare you for a zombie apocalypse, instead, I’m going to help you make a plan for your birth experience based on evidence based information. Whether you want to deliver your baby in the hospital or at home, c-section or normally, with medications or without, I can help you identify your choices and create a plan.
Private YBE classes are offered in the comfort and privacy of your own home and tailored to your schedule. 4 hours of tailored instruction for you and your birth partner to prepare you for your childbirth experience, not just hospital expectations. The Your Birth Experience Childbirth Parents’ Guide included with the class, is an interactive journal that walks you step-by-step through the process of understanding your own unique desires and needs in relation to childbirth, It also contains detailed information about childbirth and evidence-based information about all your options that is presented in a simple and understandable way.
Topics in the manual are:
- Why Your Birth Experience?
- The Importance of a Birth Plan
