10-Session Comprehensive Course

  • Assembling your birth team – what to look for and what questions to ask a potential care provider
  • Comfort measures & relaxation techniques
  • How the partner can best support the mom
  • The role of a doula
  • Labor – from start to finish what happens internally and how it manifests externally
  • Pros and cons of various medical interventions
  • Understanding when cesareans are truly necessary
  • Newborn care
  • Breastfeeding and much more!
