Group Childbirth Classes

Pregnant people without partners are welcome to come alone or with a friend/family member.

The classes are small and allow time for conversation, discussion and questions. After all of the babies are born we have a reunion class party to listen to birth stories, share parenting resources, admire the beautiful babies and to be a community of support to one another on this new journey.

Supporting your Choices

• making a birth plan
• advocating for yourself and knowing your options
• medications, interventions and alternatives
• why would we want to consider having a birth doula?
• questions to ask your providers
• how will we know when it’s time to go to the hospital/birth center?
• gentle cesareans – is that possible?
• pushing positions
• breastfeeding
• the challenges and joys of the first year with your baby – “woohoo we’re parents – now what?!”
