This bundle will give you the foundation of skills to best care for your new baby so that you feel confident as you embark on parenthood!

Class is a blend of lecture, video, demonstration and will include, but not be limited to:

  • Physiology of Labor and Birth
  • Signs, Stages and Emotional Signposts of Labor
  • Introduction to non-pharmacological Pain Management Techniques and pain medication options
  • Understanding Birth Options

  • Cesarean Birth and Prevention

  • Postpartum Care and Recovery

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 by sharing what possible things to expect, helping you develop the skills to move through your labor and leaving you feeling prepared to work through whatever your journey turns out to be. It is our goal to educate you about the full spectrum of options for birth, and then to support you unconditionally.

Taught by experts who have assisted 20,000+ expectant parents through a wide range of birth choices and experiences.

In this 3-hour class, there will not be time to practice the pain-coping techniques you will learn about. You will receive a 1-hour pain-coping class video to go deeper.

This class is instructed by our partners at Boober.

Boober is where expectant and new parents find classes and on-demand care providers like doulas, lactation consultants, mental health therapists, and more.
