Private One-on-One Virtual Classes available NOW via Zoom as we navigate Corvid-19
Private Childbirth classes in your home or mine returns after social distancing.
With nearly 30 years of experience, I am one of the area’s most experienced Certified Childbirth Educators. I have taught thousands of couples both privately and at several hospitals and birth centers. I train nurses, doctors, midwives and doulas to become certified educators. I helped develop the certification exam for Lamaze Childbirth Educators. But most importantly, I LOVE what I do and am grateful for and respectful of each parent I work with!
Typically we meet for 2 sessions for 2-3 hours each class.
Classes are tailored to the subjects that you wish to cover.
Topics can include and are not limited to:
- relaxation for birth
