Birth Education

Our approach to birth education is holistic, using a Bio-psycho-social framework. Each session is focused and personalized based on evidence-based research, our experience working in the hospital and integrative information gathered from healers from both Western and alternative modalities. We offer private sessions or small group settings. All services are customized based on individual need. Private classes occur in your home and are based off mutual availability. Group sessions are scheduled intentionally to allow for intimate discussion, with a maximum of three couples. Contact us for a free 15-minute consultation or to schedule your sessions.
