Six-Week Comprehensive Birth, Breastfeeding, and Baby Class

Knowledge is power.

Perhaps this is your first out of hospital birth, your first natural birth or you just wish to be more prepared than last time. With our comprehensive childbirth education course we work to ensure you have the information and tools needed to experience a calm, empowering birth. We believe the best way to build confidence and overcome fear is through education and practice. We cover basic physiology and labor processes, relaxation techniques, positioning for labor and birth, communication skills, non-drug pain relief options, variations from normalcy, nutrition, breastfeeding, postpartum and newborn care, preparing the birth partner, and more.

Birth & Babe Bootcamp

Short on time?

Life is busy and time is short! While we strongly recommend taking a full course, sometimes that is not an option. This course is perfect for couples who are expecting their baby soon, have a partner that works in the oil industry, military spouses, business owners and those with busy schedules. Preparation is key. Studies show that women who prepare for the experience of labor and birth fair better. Our weekend bootcamp focuses on the process of labor, birth and the postpartum period.

This eight hour class takes place over the weekend on Saturday and Sunday.

The schedule is as follows each day:

  • 10:00am – Class starts
  • 12:00pm – 1 hour lunch break
  • 1:00pm – Class restarts
  • 3:00pm – Class ends
