Childbirth Classes

“Lessons in preparing for childbirth are really lessons in living.”
- Lynn Moen, Around The Circle Gently

Not just for homebirth couples but for those planning hospital births as well. La Shel and Jamin discuss everything from the proper nutrition for a healthy pregnancy to trust in birth, risk and benefits of pain medication in childbirth, birth plans, understanding and coping with labor, the postpartum period and much more.

 

Typically classes meet in a small group of three to six couples in a comfortable and nurturing environment. At these classes you’ll receive lots of practical information regarding the different stages of pregnancy, labor and delivery, and the care of your newborn child through thought- provoking dialogues, memorable exercises and interesting videos.

These classes are designed not just for homebirth couples but for those planning hospital births as well. La Shel and Jamin discuss everything from the proper nutrition for a healthy pregnancy to trust in birth, risk and benefits of pain medication in childbirth, birth plans, understanding and coping with labor, the postpartum period and much more.

La Shel and Jamin strive to provide answers to all your important questions. Their approach to childbirth education is based on a holistic model: Exploring not only the physiology of childbirth and pregnancy, but also the implications of the physiological and emotional aspects of the birth experience.

Their classes help pregnant women and their partners clarify their values, release fear, cultivate intuition and develop confidence for childbirth and parenting. They will help you to make more informed choices about birth and the care of your baby based on knowledge of benefits, risks and alternatives to obstetrical procedures.
