Prepared Natural Childbirth Classes

I make sure...

that both partner and expecting mom are prepared for all that may come along, from medical issues that may arise, to different ways to relax and breath during contractions.

My unique hands-on Lansing natural childbirth classes utilize several different birthing techniques, giving you the most comprehensive childbirth class possible. While supporting numerous number of couples through their birthing experience I’ve noticed that there is not one technique works well for everyone. Instead of being stuck with one method you will have the tools to adapt to whatever feels best for YOU and YOUR unique birthing situation.

  • I spend a class looking at interventions – and ways to discuss with your medical provider your different options and making sure that you are making an informed decision regarding your, and your baby’s, health.
  • I focus on how to prepare your body for labor by helping you understand and practice exercise that help baby line up into your pelvis in a way that facilitates an easier birth.
  • I prepare you to take your newborn home. I will help ease the new parent nerves by giving you confidence in feeding, bathing, diapering, and more!
