birth and baby prep school
Preparing you for birth and parenting on your own terms! Create clear goals for yourself and your partner, understand your options, and learn how to push through to have your best birth!
Why birth and baby? We believe that there are FOUR trimesters to prepare for. Pregnancy, birth, and those first precious months with your newborn are all part of a long period of growth, change, and learning for you and your partner and we want you to be prepared.
Taking this prenatal education class sets you up to feel positive about birth and empowered to make your own choices
Classes are offered once a month.
