What Is Childbirth Education? Why Do I Need It?

Labor is not a great time to start learning the ropes and making major decisions. It can be terribly difficult to focus, learn and think through your options when contractions are coming every few minutes. Because of rising costs, hospitals are cutting back on maternity wards which means less nurses with time to help and instruct people in labor. Obstetrics has the biggest gap between what we know from studies and what is conducted in medical practice. My Informed & Mindful Birthing course will help you prepare for labor by providing essential, evidence-based information and personalized attention.

Birth can be a very positive, joyful and peaceful event. My philosophy is that birth is a natural process that our bodies are biologically made to handle. I will inform you of all birthing options so you and your birthing partner can make the best decisions for you and baby during labor. Whether you want to deliver naturally, receive pain relief, or end up needing an induction or a surgical birth (c-section), this course can help you.
