Holistic Birth

Three non-judgmental, informative classes to help you create the birth you envision. Our holistic class focuses on evidenced-based birth and how to individualize your experience tailoring it to your value system and desires. Information from our baby care, breastfeeding prep and birth plan classes are incorporated into this series so if you take Holistic Birth, you should not sign up for those additional classes. Holistic Birth encourages the use of hypnotherapy, if that resonates with you, and provides our own highly sought after medical hypnotherapist to work with you individually outside of class to create custom CDs for your birth. (See Hypnosis for Childbirth below.) Classes are taught privately or as a group. Spouses or one support person are welcome and encouraged to attend. The classes are on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Tuesdays of the month at 6:00pm.

Private, 1.5 hours: $450
Group, 2.5 hours: $450

Childbirth Refresher

For families who already have gone through a full childbirth course with another pregnancy and wants a quick refresher or to create a different experience this time. We will review the basics of how to manage labor and know when it's the best time to head to your birth place. This class does not incorporate birth plans, feeding or baby care, and you are encouraged to join those classes if you feel you need that extra support in creating a new experience in this pregnancy. Class is taught privately or as a group. The group class is on the 3rd Saturday of the month at 1:30pm.

Private, 1.5 hours: $200
Group, 1.5 hours: $80

Hypnosis for Childbirth

Private and personal, this class is only taught one on one to pregnant mothers and separately to their partners if needed. Issues where hypnosis is most helpful is when a mother would like to address some of her fears around birth and shift her subconscious in these areas, to overcome disappointments with difficult prior births, and to shift circumstances that might prevent the birth she wants such as placenta previa, pre-eclampsia, breech or other atypical presentations, pregnancy migraines, premature labor and bed-rest, as well as needle, doctor and hospital phobias. All hypnosis sessions are done via Skype, and a customized recording of the session will be sent to you afterwards.

Private, 2 hrs: $250
