Evidence Based Childbirth Education Classes in Syracuse
Childbirth education is the starting point to a lifelong journey of education as parents. My goal is to prepare you for many different paths pregnancy and birth can take, and create the birth you hope for while being prepared for the unexpected.
Many ask why choose an independent childbirth class if my hospital has their own. Great question! My class offers personalized, evidence-based information in a small class setting which allows for focus on whatever topics students wish to discuss further. This makes for a more intimate experience with an educator who has seen and experienced many unique real-world births and years of supporting families through it all.
Partners are welcome and encouraged to join.
In this six hour class we will cover:
- Homebirth & hospital birth
- Stages of labor
- Hands on comfort measures
- Positions for labor
- Role of partner & doula
-Interventions and informed consent
-Transition to parenthood
-Cloth diapering (if desired)
Semi-private class: $125
This option is for 2-5 couples, held at a nearby community location, or in a couple's home who wishes to host. This class allows you to gain and share knowledge from the group and the questions that get asked that you may not have thought of.
This is also great for friends or relatives who are both expecting!
Private class: $200
This option is for individualized education or for couples that cannot attend a group session. We can adjust the class to your particular needs too. This class will either be held in your home or in mine (depending on scheduled time).
"Had a great natural childbirth class with our doula, Christine, from Birth Beautifully yesterday. Would definitely recommend this class to anyone interested in achieving a natural, non-medicated birth experience! Thanks, Chris!"
