The Birth Village Class
The Birth Village Class is one of the only independent childbirth classes available in our area. (Spoiler: I'm one of the instructors!) It's a four-week series that is designed to prepare parents to have the best birth possible, no matter what kind of birth they want to have. It's designed by and taught by local doulas who know the ropes for people giving birth in our community. (Currently, the other instructor is Sarah Doyle, the Joyful Doula.)
We talk about being mentally ready for birth, what you can do to help your body give birth, how to support someone in labor, what you can do to increase your comfort in birth, how to work with your healthcare team, what to expect after baby is born, tips on surviving the postpartum/newborn time, how to get breastfeeding started of right, and much more!
