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 educate you 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.
