Designed as a complement to our regular childbirth class, the Comfort Techniques Class will take you deeper into coping for your birth and beyond. Whether you’re planning for a non-medicated birth, are considering your options, or are sure you’d like an epidural, this class will allow you to approach your birth with more confidence and less anxiety.  Both pregnant women and their partners will learn practical strategies for dealing with both the physical and emotional components of birth. Plus the tools will apply to parenthood and life after birth!

If you are seeking a more in depth preparation, this childbirth class is for you.

Doing some of the inner work of preparation not only for birth but for parenthood. Taking a look at limiting beliefs that may be lingering that may interfere with the birth process.
