Why do I teach private Childbirth Education?
Well, my aim is not just to go through a curriculum or a set of powerpoint slides by the book. My end goal that makes me leave each session with a smile that you are satisfied and feel prepared is that we focus on you as the case scenario.
You get tons of handy resources (like our Free printable 13 page journal-style booklet, the Practical Postpartum Planner - did you download yours yet? ) for your continued learning, access to the Birth Prep Doulas Lending Library, evidence-based information, local protocols, updates and statistics that you will understand and be able to put to use for your benefit and informed choice.
The pace of my one-on-one classes flows naturally as I keep the discussions to the point and relevant to your setting. Most topics are accompanied by hands on, real life practice and positive birth stories so that when you graduate the Birth Prep 4-1-1 course, you are 100% ready to apply this knowledge and new skills to your birth!
