What you'll learn in this childbirth class:

In this weekend intensive, mothers will learn and be prepared with the birth of their child with confidence and relaxation.

This childbirth preparation class is designed to offer couples a well-rounded, accessible curriculum. As doulas and childbirth educators, we have assisted thousands of couples through a very wide range of birth choices and experiences. Though certified with lamaze (not your ma's lamaze, as they say, check out the great work they are doing today),DONA International and birthing from within, instructors don't teach any one method; instructors rather  pull the best parts from the most popular methods, as well as from the extensive experience in the field. It is the instructors goal to teach the full spectrum of options a woman has when preparing for her birth, and then to support her unconditionally.

Class is a blend of lecture, video, demonstration, and practice and will include, but not be limited to:
  • Gestation and anatomy
  • Preparing your body and how to adapt to its changes
  • Signs and stages and emotional signposts of labor pain management techniques including breathing, relaxation, position choices, massage techniques, pressure points, hydrotherapy, aromatherapy options, vocalization, and much more.
  • Understanding evidence-based care
  • Birth pre fence sheets (birth plans)
  • Pain medication options
  • Labor support--who to have at your birth
  • Understanding medical support or interventions and induction
  • Cesarean birth and prevention
  • Postpartum health
Important:
While we are certified with Lamaze (not your ma’s Lamaze, as they say check out the great work they are doing today), DONA International and Birthing From Within, we don’t teach any one method; we pull the best parts from the most popular methods, as well as from our extensive experience in the field.

There is no one right way to labor. We stand by the philosophy that birth is a normal process and hope to inspire confidence in everyone we teach. It is our goal to educateyou about the full spectrum of options for birth, and then to support you unconditionally.

The most important way to approach your birth is with confidence and relaxation. You achieve this by knowing what possible things to expect, developing the skills to move through your labor and feeling prepared to work through whatever your journey turns out to be.

Refund Policy
The school highly recommend that students schedule any prenatal classes or workshops to end by the time they are 36 weeks pregnant. If they schedule class for after they begin their 36th week, they run the risk of having their baby and missing their class without a refund. In the event that they go into labor before 36 weeks, they may apply 90% of the class cost to another class (i.e.: CPR) or service (i.e.: postpartum doula care).

In the special circumstances of a mother-to-be being placed on bed rest or delivering before 36 weeks before the beginning of a class series, they may apply 90% of the class fee to another class or service at Birth Day Presence. If bed rest or delivery happens while they are in the middle of a series (and they would have completed their classes before they began their 36th week), they may apply the fees from the unused portion of the class toward another class or service at Birth Day Presence.

Birth Day Presence is not responsible for providing make-ups or issuing any credit for classes missed as a result of scheduling conflicts, vacations, illness, emergencies, or other circumstances beyond our control.

Cancellation Policy

If students cancel their class:
  • 30 plus days in advance, they will receive 90% refund
  • 15-30 days in advance, they wil receive 50% refund 
  • 14 days or less in advance, there are no refunds
Rescheduling Policy

If they need to reschedule a class:
  • 15 + days in advance, no fee, as long as there's availability 14 days or less in advance, $35 rescheduling fee, as long as there's availability.
  • In the event that they need to miss a one-time class due to medical absence, they may transfer into a class with available space with a doctor's note.
Class Cancellation or Adjustment by Birth Day Presence

Birth Day Presence reserves the right to alter class times due to low enrollment. Every effort will be made to work with students' schedules to ensure that the student receives the instruction she signed up for. If the school cannot place students in another class or schedule a private session comparable to what they signed up for, a full refund will be given.

Reviewed by Hana S. on 4/20/2015
Very in-depth and informative, with a good hands-on practice component. Teacher was extremely knowledgeable and struck the right balance between explaining all the options, while still making clear which elements are most supported by scientific evidence.
