New class: Birth Basics

This August, I'm offering a 2 session "Birth Basics" course. I have contemplated this for a while, and I'm excited to be able to offer this education to people who otherwise might not be able to attend my comprehensive classes. However, it is important to know that this class is just the basics of birth- in such a short time I'm not able to cover all the same information as I normally do.

By the end of this "Birth Basics" class, you should have these questions answered:

  • How do I know when I'm in labor?
  • What happens during labor? (stages, terminology, etc.)
  • What can my partner do to support me? (physically, mentally, and emotionally)
  • How do I know when to go to the hospital?
You will also be aware of :
  • Lots of positions to use during labor and delivery
  • A variety of coping techniques
  • How a birth plan can help you have the birth you want
In addition, the class will help to:

  • Identify good sources to help you gain the information you need
  • Connect you with a network of resources to further your preparation for birth and parenting

This class would be approriate for all women- those who are desire to labor and deliver unmedicated ("going natural") or those who plan to have an epidural. You'll get the basics of birth so you'll have some idea of what to expect. Come join us! You'll be glad you did!

Dates: Tuesdays August 20 and 27
Time: 6:30-9:00 (may go to 9:30 if we have more questions, discussion, etc.)
Location: Honey Bump Maternity in Layton 
Fee: $60 includes class for mom and partner or anyone who will be attending her birth, along with supplies, snack, and follow-up email ($10 deposit to save your spot, remaining $50 due at the first session)

Please contact me if you have any questions.

If you are short on time or short on cash (or both!), or if you live far away from Salt Lake, this class might be better for you than my regular comprehensive classes. However, if you are hoping for a comprehensive experience (with information on prenatal wellness, more in-depth info on labor and delivery, various and complications, labor rehearsal practice, breastfeeding, newborn care, postpartum healing,etc.) then please contact me about my upcoming comprehensive class (starting in September).

If you'd like to pay via paypal, you may do so here (price slightly higher due to fees):
