Perinatal Classes

Childbirth + Newborn Care

Classes are taught online and in person.

About the Classes

This Class touches your heart, mind, and body and is easy to understand. Through experiential teaching, you and your partner will gain the skills to give birth, thrive postpartum, and care for your newborn.  These classes help familiarize you with relaxation techniques to help you labor easier in a birthing space of your choosing. It gives your partner the skills they need to coach you through it physically and emotionally confidently. You will get to practice labor positions, comfort techniques, and how to follow your intuition. 

 

My clients have shared that my teaching style allows them to receive the information in a relatable and easy-to-understand manner. This promotes application and success with the ideas and methods that I teach.

Gain the opportunity to practice soothing techniques. Essential newborn care skills will also be practiced, ensuring you feel confident caring for your little one. Feeding positions will be demonstrated, discussed, and practiced, allowing you to become familiar with nourishing your baby while promoting comfort and bonding. Furthermore, you will have the chance to learn about the safe loading of babies into car seats, explore the various safety features of these seats, and discover ergonomic carrying positions. 

A postpartum checklist will be completed to provide you with peace of mind. This checklist ensures you have all the essential items you need upon discharge from the hospital, allowing you to focus on your recovery and the joy of embracing your new role as a parent.

These classes offer a comprehensive and immersive experience, equipping you and your partner with the knowledge, skills, and confidence necessary to navigate the transformative journey of labor, birth, and early parenthood.

At this time we only have our online class available.

Being my doula Sally has been very on top of addressing questions and worries, directing me to options to discuss with my midwife, and ensuring that I was going to be as prepared as possible for my upcoming birth! The classes would have been AMAZING had they been an option for me for my first birth.

 

Even though this is my second child having a refresher course was very needed, and still pointed out one or two little facts that I had forgotten.

 

The material was presented in a direct and helpful way, any questions were encouraged and answered or looked into. 

 

 

Sally was very helpful when I had to leave a class early by sending me the slides of what I missed! So even if something crops up, she was very accommodating.

Sally had a lot of great information that I wasn’t familiar with.  I feel much more confident after taking her childbirth class
